FITNESSMATE QUICK START
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

1.) For 'FMATE*.ZIP' files use PKUNZIP.EXE v.1.10 or higher to extract
the FitnessMate archive onto a floppy disk, any size will do. No
special PKUNZIP 'switches' are required.

2.) To set up the program on your HARD DISK... (you will need about
six hundred and fifty kilobytes of free space.)
TYPE 'INSTALL' followed by the letter designation of the floppy
drive your installing FROM and the letter designation of the hard
drive your installing TO. FOR EXAMPLE: INSTALL A C
(A being the floppy and C the hard drive.) That's all there is to it.

3.) From your FitnessMate directory, type FM.EXE to run FitnessMate
for the first time and carefully answer the setup questions.

4.) Type 'F'. Then type 'P' to OPEN a different FitnessMate account.
Choose number two for 'Sample O. Data' to select the example FitnessMate
account. Type 'S' for sport. Type 'R' to select the SPORT 'running'.
The year should be set on 1993, and the sport set to running to access
the data in this example file.

5.) Try FitnessMate's many reporting and graphing functions, enter some
performance data, change colors, etc. Experiment...

DEFAULT PROGRAM SETUP FOR REGISTERED USERS
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

If you are a REGISTERED USER UPGRADING from a previous version and
you have used the default directory (FMATE) you will get a 'file
exists overwrite? Y/N' message for each file as the self extracting
archive executes. Answer YES (keep hitting the Y key) for all
of the files until the old have all been overwritten by the new.

Since upgrades have been made to the structure and method FitnessMate
uses to access it's data files, the data files you have already
created will need to be changed to match the current configuration.
I cannot stress how important it is to make a backup copy (or two) of
these difficult to recreate data files. If you have not already done
this STOP and do it now! The data files of course, are those files
with names and the extension '.DAT' for example 'WILJOHNS.DAT' is mine.

You have been provided a FitnessMate file conversion utility called
'UPDATE.EXE' to do the necessary conversion. Simply run it once by
typing 'update' from your FitnessMate directory and it automatically
upgrades all the data files that are present then it self destructs.
It is only meant to be run once and running it twice will ruin the
data files. That is the reason it deletes itself. Do not run it a
second time over your data files or they will be gone forever. BEFORE
running this conversion utility, make double sure that you have made
a backup copy of your data files. The data files of course, are those
files with names and the extension '.DAT' for example 'WILJOHNS.DAT'
is mine. AFTER running the utility start up the new version and do
a quick check to make sure everything is ok. View your averages and
the statistical mean to make sure things are ok and not coming up as
zero. Do a couple of graphs to see that the program is happy with
your new data files. I have checked this very thoroughly and verified
that it works. However, I am only human and that is why I am asking
you to make the quick double check!

See the 'What's new!' section in the program documentation file
'Fitness.doc' for more information. This FitnessMate file conversion
utility called 'UPDATE.EXE' is copyright 1992-93 by William Joseph Johnson
all rights reserved and is of course, only available to REGISTERED USERS.

This upgrade process WILL NOT HARM or do anything to your program
configuration or DATA files and is absolutely positively necessary
to use the outstanding new release!

FitnessMate will function normally and all of your DATA files etc.;
will remain intact and will be modified to conform to the new format
which enhances performance. Otherwise everything will be as it was
prior to the upgrade only you will be using the new version.

DEFAULT PROGRAM SETUP FOR SHAREWARE VERSION
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

If you are evaluating the SHAREWARE VERSION and UPGRADING from a
previous version in order to complete your 30 day trial period you
must erase the previous version and install the new one.

Since upgrades have been made to the structure and method FitnessMate
uses to access it's data files, the data files you have already
created will no longer work. The data files of course, are those files
with names and the extension '.DAT' for example 'WILJOHNS.DAT' is mine.
You may evaluate the new version for the remainder of your thirty day
trial period. Under no circumstances may your trial period exceed the
limits of the shareware license.

The FitnessMate file conversion utility called 'UPDATE.EXE' is copyright
1992-93 by William Joseph Johnson all rights reserved and is only
available to REGISTERED USERS. The only way to obtain this utility,
which will enable you to keep going with the data files you created using
the previous SHAREWARE version, is to purchase the program.

MANUAL PROGRAM SETUP
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

If you want to set the program up MANUALLY it has been compressed
using Haruyasu Yoshizaki's LHA v2.13 into a self extracting archive.

Copy the package into your directory, then run the FitnessMate self
extracting archive (the *.exe file). It will then extract itself
and will essentially be 'ready to go.' You should then delete the
self extracting archive as it will still be there in your directory
taking up valuable disk space.
