INSTALLATION PROCEDURE
1. Place the following files in a
subdirectory somewhere on your
path:
AD.EXE AD program
TSRINT.EXE Interrupt
handler used when
SHELL won't work
properly.

2. Create a directory in which to
store support files. This
"support" directory will contain
the following files:

AD.HLP On line help text
AD.CFG Configuration file
AD.DOC User's guide text
file
README.1ST Last minute
information
*.PD Printer drivers
FEATURES.TXT List of advanced
features in the
registered version
REGISTER.TXT Registration form
VERSION.TXT Known idiosyncrasies
OBJECT.TXT Discussion of
experimental
Object Oriented Analysis
features
PRINTER.TXT Custom printer
specification form
ABOUT.TXT A message from the
author
REGULAR.TXT Description of the regular
expression technique used
by the Search and Replace
Feature.
*.LN Language definitions
(i.e. GENERIC.LN)

3. Create one or more subdirectories
in which you will store action
diagrams that you create. These
are referred to as "project"
directories. Place these files in
one of the project directories:

*.AD Various example
Action Diagrams

These will usually be associated
with a specific project.

Only AD.EXE, AD.CFG and AD.HLP are
required to operate AD. You will
want to examine the example
diagrams.

4. Add the following command to your
autoexec.bat file:
SET ADDIR=
where is the location of
your support directory. AD will
look for AD.CFG in this
subdirectory (or in the current
directory if ADDIR isn't set).
Reboot your computer.

5. Test your installation by typing AD
at the DOS prompt. Press Alt-S
to display the current setup.
Enter your project and support
paths (including drive), select a
printer and default language and
set other options as you desire.
Save your configuration by pressing
Ok.


PRINTERS
Printer drivers for a number of popular printers are included.

PLAIN.PD is the generic printer driver.

PLAIN works with the HP Laserjet II and IBM Proprinter.

USER'S GUIDE
The User's Guide is contained in AD.DOC. You will want to print
it out in advance of using Action Designer. It is about 35
printed pages. The printed manual for registered users is, of
course, much nicer. Examine the sections on basics, the user
interface and opening diagrams to get a quick operational overview.

OTHER FILES
There are a number of files that you will want to read.

ABOUT.TXT A letter from me to you
REGISTER.TXT Registration form and procedures
RELEASE.TXT Current release notes
FEATURES.TXT Advanced features in the registered
version
OBJECT.TXT Notes on an experimental Object Oriented
Analysis feature
PRINTER.TXT Worksheet for custom printer drivers

SHAREWARE MANUAL
You can get a hard copy of the manual by entering a command like
"copy ad.doc prn" at the DOS prompt. Certain special characters
are represented by '?' in the text. The formatting is imperfect
in some cases. You will want to register to recieve a laser
printed copy of the manual.

UNIMPLEMENTED FUNCTIONS
The evaluation copy of Action Designer is fully functional. You
will be reminded of your obligation to pay for what you use
regularly.
