*** Standard Installation ***
Follow this easy one-time installation procedure:
1) Create a directory to hold the Space Hound related files. The
recommended directory name (used in the following instructions) is
2) Copy all Space Hound-related files to this directory. At a minimum
you need the following files:
3) Note: You will also need a copy of VBRUN300.DLL. This file is
available within many CompuServe forums. To obtain this file from
CompuServe, GO WUGNET and search for the file VBRUN3.ZIP.
4) You may optionally copy the following files to C:\Spacehnd:
Note: It is possible that you may have existing copies of these files
within your WINDOWS or WINDOWS\SYSTEM directory or within other directories
on your system. These files are used by many different applications both
from shareware and commercial companies. The proper location for these
files is within the WINDOWS\SYSTEM directory. Caution, before you copy
these files to the WINDOWS\SYSTEM directory, you should use the Windows
File Manager to see if copies of these files already exist.
If these files are not present within the WINDOWS\SYSTEM directory, you
may simply copy them into it and proceed to step 5.
If versions of any of the files are already on your computer, you should
use the Windows File Manager to look at each file's date & time to determine
if the existing version is newer than the files included within the
SPACEHND.ZIP file. If your existing files are newer, Space Hound should
work just fine with them and you can proceed to step 5.
If the Space Hound files are newer, you should move your original files
to a temporary directory in case you encounter problems with other
software and need to get them back.
Once you have moved the older files to a temporary location, you may
copy the Space Hound supplied versions to your WINDOWS\SYSTEM directory.
Note: Once Space Hound is installed and running, you can use it's ability
to peek inside files and view the file's version information. This will
generally confirm which one is the older version.
4) Use the Windows Program Manager to place Space Hound within an
existing program group or create a new group and then add the program
to it. Refer to your Windows' documentation on adding new programs
NOTE: Fineware is aware that the install process is complicated and we
would like to help. In general, shareware downloads need to be as small
as possible to reduce connect time charges. If you are not comfortable
with the installation process described above, you may contact us and
for a small postage and handling charge ($2), we will send you a complete
setup and installation package. This will still be the unregistered
version of Space Hound but it will contain everything you need to
properly and easily install the program.
That's all there is to installing Space Hound. When Space Hound is
activated for the first time, a few one-time only dialog boxes and
messages are displayed.
Remember that while Space Hound is active, online help is always
available by pressing the F1 key.
Common installation problems:
Many of today's applications include components from other 3rd party
distributors. These components are like snap-together parts.
When an application is initially designed, the programmer
is probably using the latest version of all of the components his
application needs. Over time, these components may be enhansed to
include new features and capabilities. A frequent problem occurs when
a newer application makes use of features that were not available
in earlier version of the software. This can cause problems when
multiple versions of these components exist on your computer.
Please refer to the following list of files and eliminate older
version if possible.
