PrintEnvelope is designed to print any-size envelope or labels on your laser
postscript or dot matrix printer. PrintEnvelope will print your company
logo and gives you access to your printer fonts, font sizes and attributes.
When printing envelopes, there is no need to manually change your printers
orientation or to do a Printer Setup on most printers. The program is
written in Microsoft's Visual Basic and requires Windows Version 3.x and the
Visual Basic runtime VBRUN300.DLL.
Installing PrintEnvelope for Windows:
PrintEnvelope and its Setup program require Microsoft's Visual Basic runtime
VBRUN300.DLL. This file is provided on the Install Disk #1 and will be
properly installed for you. If you acquired this copy of PrintEnvelope from
a BBS, then the file is not included (to save space) and must be present in
your WINDOWS\SYSTEM directory before running Setup. You can find
VBRUN300.DLL on most BBSs, look for VBRUN3.ZIP or call Maurer Associates for
assistance in locating the file.
1. If Windows in not already running, Type WIN at the DOS command prompt.
2. Insert the PrintEnvelope Install Disk #1 in your computer's floppy disk
3. Double-click the Windows Program Manager, if it is not already open.
4. From the Program Manager's File menu, choose Run.
5. In the Run window, click in the Command Line box. Now type a:setup if
you are installing from drive A, or type b:setup if you are installing
from Drive B. (The setup program may also be run from a sub-directory
on your hard disk if desired.)
6. Click OK to continue and the PrintEnvelope Setup window will appear.
7. Setup will create a Program Manager Group and install the PrintEnvelope
icon in the new Group. After installation, you may move the program
icon to another group and delete the PrintEnvelope group if you desire.
If you are not using Program Manager as your desktop shell, the setup
program may not have been able to create the new Program Manager Group and
copy the PrintEnvelope icon. DDE is required for this operation and some
replacement shells do not support DDE. If this is the case, install the
icon to your desktop using your shells directions or run the Program Manager
and follow the following directions:
If necessary, install PrintEnvelope in the program group of your choice by:
1. Open the Program Group you wish to install PrintEnvelope into.
2. Select FILE in the Program Manager and choose NEW.
3. Click OK to select Program Item.
4. In the Description box enter: PrintEnvelope and press the Tab key.
5. In the Command Line box, enter the full path name of the PrintEnvelope
directory followed by \ENVELOPE.EXE or click the Browse... button to
locate the ENVELOPE.EXE file.
