To install E-Crostic, follow these 4 steps:
- Choose the appropriate version (see below) of the setup
Save that file (setup.exe) to a place where you will be able to find it once
it's downloaded -- the Desktop is fine (you'll be deleting it soon anyway).
There are two versions of the setup file:
- If you have Windows XP or later, or if you have an earlier version of
Windows that contains the
MSI engine, download this version of the setup
program. This version is only 871KB.
- If you a version of Windows that does not have the MSI engine (XP and later
will always have the engine), download this
version of the setup
program. It's a hefty 4.21MB.
- If you have no idea whether your version of Windows has the MSI engine --
or if you don't even know what the heck an MSI engine is -- never fear! You can
either download the hefty version, which will install itself on any Windows
system, or (and this is what I would do) you can download the trim 871KB
version and try to run it. If the trim version stops in its tracks and reports
a missing MSI file, you'll
know you need the hefty version. Just download that one now and run it, and
everything will be
(Whichever version of the setup file you download, the end result after
installation will be a 621KB program.)
- Run the setup program by
double-clicking on it. You may get a warning that the file does not have a
valid digital signature that verifies its publisher. This is true. When you're
giving your software away, as we are, you don't have the time or the money to
invest in digital signatures. So run the setup program anyway.
- After E-Crostic is installed, you can delete setup.exe --
there is no reason to save it.
- Run E-Crostic from the Start Menu or by double-clicking the E-Crostic icon
on your desktop.
