INSTALL INTRODUCTION

Most programmers do not want to write a different installation
program for each new program developed. Many resort to batch
files which in general are not very smart and not very impressive
cosmetically. The MakeInst and Install programs were developed to
make software installation as easy for the developer to prepare
as for the end user to install. After evaluating this package we
hope that you will become a registered user of Install.

PURPOSE

This package is designed so that the developer/distributor of
software can within a matter of minutes completely prepare floppy
diskettes for distribution to end users.

The package provides many features including:

- Automatically calculates required hard disk requirements
- Displays available hard disk space
- Allows custom install screen text
- Handles critical errors such as open disk drive doors
- Prompts user until correct floppy is inserted




USING INSTALL

Using install is a very simple process.

1.) Copy all files to the floppy(s) as you want them to be
installed. If you want certain file installed into a
subdirectory under the main installation directory
then simply make a subdirectory on the floppy. eg
A:\EXAMPLE\ for files to be installed in a subdir
called \xxx\EXAMPLE where xxx is the main installation
subdirectory. Make sure you leave enough room on
floppy #1 for INSTALL.EXE (about 40K) and the
INSTALL.DAT (varies in size according to the number of
files but usually less than 2K) data file.

2.) Run MAKEINST.EXE. This program will prompt you for up
to 6 lines of text to be displayed on the screen at
installation. You will also be asked to enter the
default installation directory. After this insert disk
#1 and press any key. All file data is read and
stored. Repeat this for each floppy.

3.) Copy INSTALL.EXE and the file created install.dat to
floppy #1.

4.) Test the installation by typing a:install [drive to
install on].

5.) Send floppy(s) to end users. That's it!
