The Register for Windows is Shareware. If you use the program for over 30
days, you should pay for continued use of the program. Registration is only
$29 which includes shipping and handling, the latest version of the program,
no "Registration" reminder when the program starts or ends, an extensive
on-line help system, and more comprehensive documentation than is
provided here.

You can print a registration from the opening or closing screen if you
want. This program has been curtailed in no way; it is complete as is.
The only differences between the Shareware and the Registered versions
are the Registered version has no "register" opening and closing screens
and it includes a "Help" option on the main menu.

INCLUDED FILES:

REGISTER.EXE ......... main program
SETUP.EXE ......... installation program through Windows;
in Windows, press Alt, F (for file),
and R (for run); type in A:SETUP or
B:SETUP and Windows will run it
REGISTER.INF ......... a list of files to be installed
3DLABEL.VBX ......... The next three will be copied to
VBGP.VBX your Windows directory since the
STATUS.DLL program needs these to run.
BEBACK.WAV ......... sound files (if you do not have
CHIMES.WAV a sound driver, you will hear an
DRUMS.WAV error beep. From the Main menu,
EXCELNT.WAV press M(isc), S(ound), (o)F(f)
THANKS.WAV to turn the sound off
NAMES.11 ......... sample student names file
GRADES.111 sample grade file
NAME111.TXT sample exported "name" file
GRADE111.TXT sample exported "grade" file
SCREENSH.ZIP screen shots in PCX format
STATS111.TXT sample exported "statistics" file
README.ZIP ......... this text file in WinWord format
includes sample screen shots
(unzips to almost 1 meg)
README.TXT ......... this text file in ASCII format
SCH2.ICO ......... icon used by The Register
FILE_ID.DIZ, DESC.SDI needed by some BBS's for file
information

You can use any word processor or editor to view the TXT files since
they are in plain ASCII. Best, under Windows, would be Notepad or
Norton's Desktop Editor. You can also view the NAMES.11 and GRADES.111
files in the same manner. BUT be careful. If you make the wrong changes
to either of these files, they will provide the wrong information to
REGISTER when the program is run.

The format for both files is quite simple. Once you know the format,
you can make changes to them directly IF YOU ARE EXTREMELY CAREFUL!!!

NAMES file
11 -- the number of students in the file MINUS ONE
if there are 25 students in the file, this number
would be 24; here, there are 12 students
"Denis","Latkowski"
-- "First Name" COMMA "Last Name"
the first name and the last name are enclosed in quotation
marks separated by a comma
"161","1201","Mrs. Smith"
-- "Student ID number" COMMA "homeroom" COMMA "counselor"
if you elect not to enter a homeroom or a counselor, then
this entry would look like: "161","",""
100,75.436,0,0
-- 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th quarter grades
note NO quotation marks

Rather than use the Change option in THE REGISTER, you may find it
easier to use an editor and make the grade changes directly yourself.
You MUST be extremely careful if you do. One mistake could ruin all
the work you've entered thus far. Before you work directly on either
or these files, make a backup. Use the COPY command:

copy names.11 names11.bak
copy grades111 grade111.bak

This way, if anything goes wrong, you have a backup you can revert to:
copy names11.bak names.11
copy grade111.bak grades.111

Each student information file is named NAMES. + "level"
Level is a two digit NUMBER that is used to differentiate
between several classes you enter. You could use '11' for
the first class you enter, '22' for the second.

NAMES.11
--
level entered as "11"

Each grade information file is named GRADES. + "level" + "quarter"

GRADES.111

INSTALLATION
TO run the SETUP program from Windows, put your disk in A: or B:
1. from the Windows' or Norton Desktop, press
Alt
F (for file)
R (run)
2. Type in A:SETUP if the disk is in drive A:
-OR-
B:SETUP is the disk is in drive B:
3. The opening screen will ask you to type in four pieces of
information used by The Register
a. the school name
b. the teacher's name (to be printed on reports)
c. the school phone number
d. the minimum passing grade for your school -- type in
the correct number (70, 65, etc.)
This information will be stored in REGISTER.INI which will be
created in your Windows directory
4. The second screen will present you with the drive and directory
where Windows has been installed. The program will create a
directory under Windows called GRADES but you can change where
you want the directory installed; you can even change the name
of the directory to something else if you want. The program will
also copy three files to your Windows\System directory -- two
VBX and one DLL file, needed by The Register to run.

You also have the option of creating a new Program Group and
having The Register installed in the new group.
************
If you elect NOT to create the Group, you must
install The Register yourself--quite easy,
actually. From the Windows Program Manager or
from Norton Desktop
press Alt
F (for file)
N (for new)
for "Title" type in THE REGISTER
press TAB key
for "Program" name type in the full path to REGISTER.EXE
example: type in D:\WINDOWS\GRADES\REGISTER.EXE
(in the grades subdirectory under the Windows
directory on drive d)
click OK
The Register icon should now appear.
Double click on the Register icon and the program will run.
************


ENTERING POINTS / GRADES

All points and grades are entered in one long string of numbers.
Each point/grade must be 3 digits each -- a 0 becomes '000'.

examples:
POINTS: 150 400 50 225 600 75 75
would be entered as
150400050225600075075

examples of student grades for above points
98 375 10 200 559 65 not done
entered as
098375010200559065---

not counted 375 10 0 590 75 75
entered as
iii375010000590075075

note that 3 dashes '---' is used to enter an incomplete grade
for a student; this is work that was not handed in at all.
The three dash entry will count as a 0 when computations are done.
If a student later completes the assignment, you can use the
Grade/Change part of the program to make the change.

If a student has a grade that should NOT BE COUNTED in the
computations at all--student was excused from an assignment
perhaps--then use three i's 'iii'. This is a code to the program
NOT to count this grade in any computations. When you enter 'i'
a capital 'I' will appear.

Computing grades
Note that you must manually Check the grades before you compute the
quarter averages. This will ensure that all student grades match the
number of points. You will also be informed if any student grade
exceeds the points for that grade. If you've given a student a
"bonus" and the grade is 125 for a point of 100, you will be informed
that points and grades don't match for this student.

In this case, you can ignore the warning since this is what you intend.
It's possible make a mistake when entering grades. The point value may
be 300 and you mistakenly type in 345 for a grade. The Check will catch
this discrepancy, and ask you to check the grades for this student.
