Header is a program that allows you to put a welcoming banner
on your pc every time it is booted. It was originally designed to
inform employees about company policy regarding software piracy.
But, the message can be configured to say anything. One use of the
program would be to install header on your companies portable
computers. The message would say the companies name/owner of the
computer, reward if found, and who to call. If the portable was
lost, it would easily identify the owner when it was turned on.
header.exe The header program.
install.exe The install program to properly install
order.doc Ordering form.
readme.txt If included, any late minute changes.
First off, header is NOT FREE. It is distributed as Shareware
to allow you to evaluate it and determine if it's right for your
organization. Registering also allows us to further develop the
product and make it available. You benefit, and we benefit.
You will be notified of any software bugs, fixes, and future
Also, as a registered user you may request DesignerWare
consulting to help with inventorying, installing, and advising on
how best to protect yourself from trade organizations like the SPA.
1>. First make a backup copy of header and its support files.
2>. Header should be installed from a floppy diskette. If
not already done, copy header.exe and install.exe to a
a>. Warning: DO NOT leave the install program and the
original header.exe on your installed PC's. Users
could reinstall it and defeat your purpose.
3>. Run install and follow the prompts. Install will create
the proper header.exe program.
a>. Disk drive - This should be the boot drive for
b>. Update timeout (default 3 seconds) - This is the
amount of time, in seconds you would like to keep
the header on the screen before continuing.
c>. Update Banner - When header runs it will display a
banner (in red on color monitors). You should put
your company name and software policy in the
banner. You are allowed 1-15 lines.
d>. Update Autoexec.bat - The install program will put
the command to run header in your autoexec.bat. It
will then make autoexec.bat read only. Use the DOS
attrib command to set it back for writing if you
need to edit it.
WHAT DOES INSTALL DO?
It copies header.exe to header.int and then sets the banner
information in header.int. Header.int is then copied to your disk
as header.exe. The install program will make header.exe a hidden
and read only file. Your autoexec.bat will be modified, if so
desired, and then it will be made read only. Header.int can then
be used, by install, to install additional copies on other PC's
without making modifications.
