Master Amortizer is a powerful amortization program with
a number of useful functions. In addition to calculating
payments, it can create a comparative table of payments
and, of course, a variable amortization schedule with any
start date and any year end. In its present form, Master
Amortizer is a shareware product. For use beyond 30 days
or you want the latest update, please register as described
on the last page of this documentation. A registered copy
has no nag box.
Copy AMORTW.EXE and AMORTW.HLP into the directory you intend
to use. AMORTW.INI saves certain variable data so you won't
have to reload it. It is preloaded with defaults. It should
be copied to the Windows directory. SPIN.DLL, BWCC.DLL and
WORKLIB2.DLL should be copied to either the Windows directory
or the Windows system directory.
AMORTW.HLP was created using WinHelp 3.10, the current release
of WinHelp. WinHelp 3.0 that came with Windows 3.0 will not
read the file. The distribution file that is sent with your
registration contains WinHelp 3.10 and will read previous
AMORTW.EXE allows you to create amortization and payment
comparison windows(MDI). You can change all the data elements
that affect the calculations as well as options that affect
the appearance of the amortization. The Windows Help file
includes context sensitive help, so you should have no problem
following the flow.
Enhancements since the original release include:
spreadsheet file export, PC Status, additional help,
odd-month loans, a command bar, multiple printer
selection and support, remaining balance and extra
payment calculations, and multiple payments frequencies.
Future enhancements will include :
