| TO SETUP BUTTONFILE |
+---------------------+

buttonFile is designed to work on IBM AT, PS/2, and 100% compatible
computers running Windows 3.x. (You must be running Windows 3.1 to take
full advantage of buttonFile's printing abilities including TrueType
fonts). buttonFile can be displayed on SVGA, VGA, EGA, and Hercules
compatible monitors. buttonFile is not compatible with a CGA monitor.
In order to use buttonFile, your computer must have MS-DOS or PC-DOS 3.1 or
later, Windows 3.x installed, at least 1MB RAM (more is highly
recommended), and a minimum of 2MB available disk storage. A mouse is also
highly recommended.

However, Windows requires a fairly sophisticated list of hardware:
Windows generally requires better graphics hardware, more memory, and
faster processors for equivalent performance when compared to a DOS
application. If you have an 80286 machine or better and at least 2MB of
memory, the performance of Windows will be adequate. Since buttonFile
runs in the Windows environment, we recommend at least this level of
hardware to take full advantage of buttonFile.

To begin using buttonFile, you must install it to a hard drive.

+-----------------------+
| 1. run INSTALL.COM |
+-----------------------+

Make sure the contents of all the ZIP files (BFILE1A.ZIP, BFILE1B.ZIP,
BFILE1C.ZIP, BFILE1D.ZIP and BFILE1E.ZIP) have been unzipped into the SAME
temporary directory on your hard disk.

Run the INSTALL.COM program. It can be run either from Windows Program
Manager or from the DOS command line. When the INSTALL program asks you to
enter the subdirectory, we recommend you provide the name of the temporary
directory where all of the ZIP files are located. (The default subdirectory
is "\TEMP".) The INSTALL program decompresses and combines all of the files
needed to run the buttonFile SETUP program.

+-----------------------+
| 2. run SETUP.EXE |
+-----------------------+

buttonFile includes a setup program (SETUP.EXE) designed to make actual
program installation quick and easy. The setup process normally takes
about 5 minutes.

To run SETUP:

1. Start Windows.
2. Switch to the Windows Program Manager.
3. Choose Run from the Program Manager's File menu.
4. Type C:\TEMP\SETUP in the text box.
(Replace "C:\TEMP\" with the same path you specified in the INSTALL
program. This is where the SETUP program is located.)
5. Choose OK.
The SETUP program will begin running.
6. The setup program will ask you to enter the path where you want
buttonFile located. YOU MUST ENTER A PATH OTHER THAN THE "temporary"
SUBDIRECTORY WHERE THE SETUP PROGRAM IS LOCATED.

After running buttonFile's SETUP program, a number of program items are
located in the buttonFile program group. Double-clicking on the buttonFile
icon starts the buttonFile program. Double-clicking on the various NOTEPAD

icons loads the associated read.me and shareware files into Windows Notepad.

If you have trouble installing buttonFile, it may be due to insufficient
memory. To see how much memory is available, switch to the Program Manager
and choose About Program Manager from the Help menu. This displays an
information box. The amount of free memory is shown on the next to last
line of the box. If this amount is less than 950 KB you may have problems
installing buttonFile.

Here are some ideas for freeing up more memory:

If you have a 386sx computer or higher, run Windows in 386 Mode. To do
this, exit Windows and type WIN /3 at the DOS command line to restart
Windows.

If you are already running in 386 Mode and still don't have enough memory,
refer to your Windows manual for information on how to increase Virtual
Memory using Swap Files.

If you are running a 286 computer close all programs except Program Manager
before trying to install buttonFile. Also, choose the Control Panel icon
in the Main group window, then choose the Desktop icon in the Control Panel
and set Wallpaper and Screen Saver options to "(None)".
