Appendix Q: INSTALL NOTES FOR WINDOWS 95, 98 & WINDOWS 2000


 

Click on Start, Run and type in 'A:\Install c:' in the Open box.  This will launch the installation routine to place MINFILE/pc on your C: drive; follow the directions. 

 

Using Windows Explorer, go to c:\minfile and, in this folder, right click and drag the file minfile (minfile.bat) to your desktop to create a 'shortcut'. Go to the icon created on the desktop and right-click the mouse. 

 

Select 'Properties' then 'Program'. On the top line enter 'MINFILE_pc'; on the Cmd line: enter 'c:\MINFILE\minfile.bat'; and at working: enter 'c:\MINFILE\work'. You may also change the icon at this point. Double clicking the MINFILE_pc icon should run the program. 

 

The font set at 10x20 in the DOS window works well. In some cases, 'c:\minfile' may be required on the path in AUTOEXEC.BAT; and 'files=44' may be required in CONFIG.SYS.
