INSTALLATION & UPGRADING

Run INSTALL.EXE. All distribution files will be copied to the directory of your choice
(.VBX and .DLL files will be placed in your Windows/System directory). For optimal
ease of use, it is recommended that you have PrintSwitch automatically load when
Windows is started.

******************************* OBSOLETE .DLL WARNINGS ************************************

If you are using another application at time of installation that uses hotkey.dll (our utility
called ExitWin for example) and your existing copy of hotkey.dll is an older version, you will
see an error message "Wrong Version Of Runtime DLL" unless you exit and restart Windows before
running the new version of PrintSwitch.

If you are upgrading from an older version of PrintSwitch OR have another program installed
that uses an old version of MESSRECD.DLL, you will get an error message "sub or function not
defined" when starting or closing PrintSwitch. You must delete ALL copies of the outdated
version of MESSRECD.DLL from your system and reinstall the newest version from the original
.zip archive. It should be dated 10/5/93 or newer and be 1,792 bytes in size. It should be
reinstalled in your Windows/System directory. Other programs that used the old version will
not be affected by the update.
