2.0 Getting Started
The CD contains a SETUP.EXE which can be used to install this program in Windows 95, 98, 2000, XP, ME, Vista, 7, 8, 8.1 and 10. For best viewing of the program, set your screen resolution to at least 1024 x 768. Before installing this program, remove a previous version using Control Panel Add/Remove programs.
Run this setup program to get the necessary files in place. Note that this setup will place a test "Inventory.txt", and a "JournalFile.txt" in the Glasses_Inventory folder in your My Documents direct. You will later want to replace these files with your own files that represent your own inventory. See 6.0 Inventory/Journal files setup
for more information.
If you are running Windows 10 then you must turn off a feature of Windows 10 called Virtual Store. This "feature" causes grief for both Glasses Reader and Glasses Inventory in that when you make your initial options settings and wish to change them later the change will not happen as far as the program is concerned. To disable Virtual Store copy the lines below between the "=============" lines into note pad and save the file as a .REG file (not a .TXT (text) file).
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
Now double click the file and allow it to run. Virtual Store will be disabled.
To install the program place the CD in your reader browse to it and double click the Autorun.bat file.
Now move down the window several pages until you see a link saying Install Program. Click this link. When the installation window comes up take all the defaults and eventually the base version 7 of the program will be installed. Now scroll down to one of the two links showing as:
Update Program to version 7.x.x (For all 32 bit PCs.)
Update Program to version 7.x.x (For all 64 bit PCs.)
to see what the program will look like at startup.
to start learning about the program.
