Contents of the INSTALL.DOC file
Currently there is not a installation program that goes with FM, its been
a debate with me if there should even be one. Personally I feel a great deal
of discomfort with installation programs that change what I've so painfully
set up without even telling me about to begin with. File Magician has no need
to change or add to any of your startup files or any .ini files in your windows
directory. The best method to install FM is.
The registered version of FM v3.5 does now contain a install program on disk.
Step 1: Create a directory on your hard drive with File Manager or whatever
you are currently using as a file manager, call the directory
FM or whatever name you wish to use. (as long as it is nice)
Step 2: Copy all the files from the FM disk or .zip archive to that
Step 3: Copy the .DLL files to your Windows\system directory if you don't
already have them there.
Installation complete. Now all you need to do is assign it a icon and
throw it in a group somewhere. FM does contain a icon that was created by
one of our registered users "Thomas LeGodais", Thanks Tom!
Step 1: Go to the File Menu and Select 'New File'.
Step 2: Enter in the Title box File Magician V3 .
Step 3: Click on the 'Browse' Button and find your way to the FM Directory
that you created and select FM.EXE, then push 'OK', the
command line entry box will fill in automatically.
Step 4: Click on the 'Icon' button. Select the icon that turns you on
and select 'OK'.
Step 5: Select 'OK' again from the File Item Box.

use the mouse pointer to select 'Program/document/script:'

Step 6: Click the 'Startup Directory' box and enter in the directory path
that you used for FM. examp. c:\fm

Thats it for Norton. His is probably the most difficult to set anything up
for but it really isn't that bad. Presently I favor Norton in a number of items
even if the rumors are true. Quite often rumors are simply user error created
with impatience. I haven't examined PCTools all that well but it too seems to
be a fine program. So far I don't realy see a need to switch desktops from
the program manager but the utilities that accompany Norton and PC are quite
quite handy when used by File Magician!!
