Thanks for trying EEBond for Windows! If you own Savings
Bonds or Notes then this program is for you. Before running
EEBond for Windows, you must make sure that SHARE.EXE has
been loaded. Just exit windows, type
c:\DOS\SHARE /L:500 /F:5100
and then re-enter Windows. You can put this line in your
AUTOEXEC.BAT file to automate the loading. All documentation
is both Online and in the program group under Help.
If SHARE.EXE does not work for you, or you just don't want
to run SHARE.EXE, there is a file on the Master Disk called
VSHARE.EXE. Copy to your hard disk, run to extract it, and
follow the instructions.
Registration is only $20. If you do register, I will send you
the most recent version of EEBond for Windows and put you on
the mailing list as a registered user. Every 6 months I will
mail you a letter when the next revision of EEBond is available
and you have the option of upgrading for 1/2 price, or $10.
You will also receive a program which will allow you do download
the Tables of Redemption Values from the Bureau of the Public and
convert them over to EEBond format, so you never have to get an
upgrade (unless you want the latest program changes and latest tables).
If you are installing over an older version of EEBond for Windows the
the installation will query you if you wish to overlay files.
Answer YES to these questions in order to overlay the older files.
Lastly, during installation the program will exit to DOS in order to
decompress some files. After this, the program will reenter windows
and continue operations.
