+ > WilloDex Address Manager < +
+ +
+ FIRST TIME INSTALLATION: +
+ +
+ 1> Unzip WDX14.ZIP where ever you want. I suggest C:\WILLODEX. +
+ It should contain the following files. +
+ WILLODEX.DOC > +
+ README.EXE > +
+ WILLODEX.EXE > +
+ WX.BAT > +
+ WX_CNAME.NTX > If any one of the .DAT or .NTX files are missing, +
+ WX_COMM.NTX > the program will melt your computer. +
+ WX_DATA.DAT > (I.E. won't run.) +
+ WX_FNAME.NTX > +
+ WX_KEY.DAT > +
+ WX_KEY.NTX > +
+ WX_LNAME.NTX > +
+ FILE_ID.DIZ > +
+ 2> Use the WX.BAT file to start the program. (It's just faster than +
+ typing "WILLODEX" all the time.) +
+ +
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++










+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
+ > WilloDex Address Manager < +
+ +
+ UPGRADING FROM A PREVIOUS VERSION: +
+ +
+ +
+ BACKUP EVERYTHING FIRST! +
+ +
+ 1> Copy all of your existing data files temporarily to another location. +
+ ( *.DAT and *.NTX files ) +
+ +
+ 2> Delete all of the existing WilloDex files. +
+ +
+ 3> Copy all of the new WilloDex files into the WilloDex directory. +
+ +
+ 4> Copy your existing data files back into the WilloDex directory +
+ overwriting all *.DAT and *.NTX files. +
+ +
+ 5> Run the program as you always do. +
+ +
+ +
+ +
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++




+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
+ > WilloDex Address Manager < +
+ OPERATION: +
+ 1> Use at least a 16 color monitor. If you are using a monochrome monitor,+
+ WilloDex will look pretty crummy. Sorry about that. +
+ 2> You must be in the same directory that contains the WilloDex files +
+ in order for the program to run. What a pain! +
+ HOWEVER... +
+ To call and run the program from any directory, you can modify the WX.BAT +
+ file to switch to the WilloDex directory as follows: +
+ ECHO OFF +
+ CLS +
+ What ever drive you're using--> C: +
+ What ever directory you're using--> CD \WILLODEX +
+ WILLODEX +
+ CD.. +
+ Then add the WilloDex directory to the path in your AUTOEXEC.BAT file +
+ or copy the WX.BAT file to a directory that's already in your path. +
+ +
+ 3> The ESCAPE key will back you out of any screen except the main menu. +
+ 4> Make sure when adding or editing that you hit ENTER after the last +
+ field you modify in order to save that field. +
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++










+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
+ > WilloDex Address Manager < +
+ OPERATION (CONT.) +
+ +
+ 5> Make sure you use valid characters when creating export files or the +
+ program (and DOS) won't like you. +
+ +
+ 6> Make sure you have enough drive space before creating export files. +
+ +
+ +
+ +

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
+ > WilloDex Address Manager < +
+ +
+ LIMITATIONS: +
+ +
+ 1> Doesn't want to cooperate when running from Windows. +
+ +
+ 2> Since WilloDex uses expanded memory when available, you will encounter +
+ a "NOT ENOUGH MEMORY" error message when using the EMM.386 Expanded +
+ Memory Manager set for NO Expanded Memory (No EMS). +
+ Setting it to use Expanded Memory or not loading it at all will solve +
+ this problem. +
