SECTION 1. GENERAL PROGRAM AND AUTHOR INFORMATION.
=======================================================================
Dear User:

This program can be used for quick overall project planning, activity
scheduling, and resource scheduling. You can assign income and costs
to events (tasks) and resources to estimate a project's income and
cost. You can define events that are tied to predecessors. For these
related events, start and end times are automatically calculated.

You can shift all events in a plan forward or backward in time. You
can define multiple calendars and use different calendars for each
resource. The program allows free-form drawing of events on a scale
of days, weeks, months, or years. On-line help and sample plans are
provided.

It will handle up to a few hundred events in a given plan, but it is
not suited for highly complex projects where thousands of tasks are
defined within a project plan.

This program requires Microsoft Windows 3.1 and a mouse (or equivalent
pointing device).

Thank you for trying this program.

processing program):
file_id.diz - Program summary information for BBS.
readme.doc - The file you are reading.
release.doc - Information about the differences between this
version and the previous version.
register.doc - Registration information. Information is also
provided in the "Registration" option of the
program's "Help" menu.

2. Required files for execution (may be placed in separate directory):
aplanr.exe - The program executable.
aplanr.hlp - On-line Windows help (not in text file format).

3. Sample data files (may be placed in separate directory):
pvcal.dat - Calendar definitions file with sample definitions.

other ".ini" type files.

======================================================================
SECTION 6. INSTALLATION AND GETTING STARTED
======================================================================
1. TO UPGRADE FROM A PREVIOUS VERSION, using the standard distribution
diskette provided directly by Sapphire Software Inc.:

a. As a precautionary measure, be sure you make a backup of
the previous version of the program and data files
before upgrading.

b. Use the DOS copy command or the Windows File Manager to
replace the old APLANR.EXE (program executable) and APLANR.HLP
(program help file) with the new versions from the distribution
diskette. The new versions use the same filenames. For example
if your old files reside in "c:\aplanr", sample commands to
copy the files are:

COPY A:\APLANR.EXE C:\APLANR
COPY A:\APLANR.HLP C:\APLANR

c. If you would like to view the new sample plans, create a
new directory to hold them. Then copy the samples from the
distribution diskette. For example if "c:\aplanr" holds
the executable programs, you could create a directory
"c:\aplanr\samples". A sample command to copy all the
sample data from a diskette in drive A is given below:

COPY A:\PV*.* C:\APLANR\SAMPLES

You can then use the "Directories" option of the "Options"
menu to tell the program to use this directory to access the
sample data.

***DO NOT*** copy the sample plans of the new version into the
same directory as your current plan files, because the sample
plan files will over-write yours.

2. TO INSTALL A FRESH VERSION from the standard distribution diskette
provided directly from Sapphire Software Inc.:

a. Create a directory to place the program files. You
may use the Windows File Manager or DOS. For example
in DOS type:

MD C:\APLANR

b. Copy all the program files from the diskette to the
new directory. You may use the Windows File Manager or
DOS. For example in DOS type:

COPY A:\*.* C:\APLANR

You do not have to copy all of the files to your disk,
but the required files are "APLANR.EXE" and "APLANR.HLP".
These are the program executable and help files respectively.
(See Item 2 in Section 5.)

3. You may execute the program named "APLANR.EXE" directly with the
Windows File Manager.

If you want to set up an icon in a program group to execute
APLANR.EXE, refer to the "Working with Program Items" section
in the Program Manager chapter of the Windows User's Guide.

4. Upon starting the program for the first time, review the on-line
help information that is available from the program's "Help" menu.
You may print any of the help sections.

5. Look at the sample plans, resource definitions, and calendar
definitions that are provided.

6. Refer to the RELEASE.DOC file for additional information regarding
the current release.

7. By default, all data resides in the same directory as the program
executable. You may place your data in another location by doing
the following:

a. Create the directory you want to store the data in.

b. Run APLANR and use the "Directories" option of the "Options"
menu to tell the program to use this directory for all data.
