Greetings.

Before you go unzipping that big ol file, do yourself a favor
and read this. Please, trust me, you really want to read this.

1. Unzip the wingbt.zip file into a directory called \install
or anything else you want. Then, from windows, run the setup
program. Heck, you can even use that powerful thing called file
manager. Kidding. Anyway, if you want to get really anal about
it, unzip the thing to a floppy diskette and install of the
floppy.

2. Please please please please. Please? Run all the example apps.
If they blow up, report it. Report the numbers from Froggy. I
am giving away brand new zillion speed CD-Rom drives to random
sites that send us feedback. Bugs!! We want bugs. Keep reading
this is not an advertisement.

3. We have an bug reporting tool that will grab the information we
need to help figure out what is going on. Please use it. We really
want to get this right. Please, feedback.

4. To submit a bug report, use internet mail. DO NOT, repeat DO
NOT submit a bug report on Compuserve. Use the internet address
of [email protected] and everybody on our team sees the bug
report. Please follow this rule. If you don't understand how to
send email via the internet from Compuserve or wherever your
home address is, please let me know. Use the internet.

Please bang on this puppy and let us know what you think. It is
important that we get that feedback.

Good Luck!
