Installation:

For installing the software please start Windows. Do not yet put the installation
CD-ROM into the drive.
1. Run the program "Software" in the control panel folder
(Start / Settings / Control Panel).
2. An alphabetical list of all installed programs is displayed. Please check first
whether WinREG is already listed.
If that is the case, you should uninstall it. This process will be described now. If
it is a first-time installation or WinREG has already been uninstalled, please
continue with point 6.
Attention: Please avoid to install a WinREG update into an existing WinREG
folder, which contains a version you do not want to delete. In this case choose
a different folder.
3. Click on the line WinREG in the list of programs, so that the background
colour changes. After that click the button "Add/Remove".
You will be asked whether you really want to remove this application. Confirm
this please. When you are asked, whether shared files should be deleted,
please select Keep all (or Delete none), in order to keep files that might be
needed by other applications. The file CMMCONN.DAT contains your connection data and should not be removed therefore.
4. A message that several parts of WinREG could not be removed, may be ignored.
5. Deinstallation ends with the message "Uninstall completed successfully".

6. Now please insert the WinREG-CD into the appropriate drive.


Normally the Installation program starts automatically now. If this automation
is deactivated at your system, please start the program Install.exe from your
CD-drives root folder.

7. The installation screen appears. You can select the language during all installations and then start by clicking onto the relating text.
8. All further steps are being described by either orders or questions from the
installation program.

9. The program folder c:\program files\a-eberle\WinREG3 will be suggested by


default. You may change this, but we recommend to leave it unchanged.
10. After the installation is complete, You will find the WinREG Control Center
in Start/Programs.

The WinREG Control Center consists of the buttons Panel, Terminal, REGPara
(setting), load desktop and save desktop.
If you have purchased addons, their icons will be placed between "REGPara"
and "Load", e.g. REGView (Recorder), Collector or WinTM
(WinT(ransformer)M(onitoring)) or WinDM.

If the Panel is not working after the correct installation of the WinREG
and you got an error massage instead of the Panel screen, please
check the installation of the Microsoft DotNet Framework 3.5 on your
PC. An offline installer of the framework can be found on the WinREG CD.
