shareware concept, and I would like to stay a part of it. But I can do so
only through registrations of NJSTAR. Please don't take this the wrong way -
try out NJSTAR for 30 days or so, under no obligation whatsoever. But if you
found it is useful and continue to use it after that 30-day period, please
send your bank check of US$49 (plus US$10 mail handling for overseas users,

INSTALLATION OF NJSTAR
The installation procedure depends on how you received the NJStar's
distribution files. Here are general guidelines for installing NJStar
1. Make sure there is enough space at user's harddisk. NJStar shareware
version requires more than 1 MB free disk spaces.
2. Create a NJStar subdirectory at user's harddisk. For instance, to
install NJStar at C:\NJSTAR, use the following DOS command,
C:\> MD NJSTAR
3. Decompressed the distribution package to NJStar subdirectory. FTP or
BBS sites, where most users get their distribution files, usually
compress the files by various compressing utilities. So the files
would have special extension names, such as .ZIP, .ARC, or .ZOO.
Please consult user's local system manager for utilities to decompress
Please watch out at this stage to see if all files are decompressed
correctly. If user didn't download files properly, decompressing
utilities usually would generate error message for them.
4. Make a subdirectory for NJStar's user files. For instance, to put all
NJStar's user file at C:\NJFILES, use the following DOS command,
C:\> MD NJFILES
5. Add NJStar's subdirectory name to user's PATH statement so that NJStar
can be invoked at any DOS prompt. The PATH statement is usually found
at user's AUTOEXEC.BAT file. User may add the following statement to
the end of current AUTOEXEC.BAT,
PATH = C:\NJSTAR;%PATH%
6. Create Dictionary files using START.BAT, which runs following three
7. Enter NJStar subdirectory and run NJCONFIG.EXE to modify NJStar if
necessary. The DOS commands are,
C:\> CD \NJSTAR
If user doesn't have an Enhance keyboard, that is, 101 keys or more in
the keyboard, it is necessary to run this program to let NJStar know
8. Run NJStar by entering NJSTAR at NJStar's subdirectory. That is,
enter the following DOS commands,
C:\> CD \NJSTAR
If user wants to run NJStar outside NJStar's subdirectory, please
reboot the computer first so that changes made in step 5 and 6 would
NJStar Registered Version is to be installed by an installation program.

2. Make sure user's harddisk has at least 2 MB free space.
3. Insert NJStar's first distribution disk at drive A or B, then invoke
the installation program according to the following syntax,
INSTALL drive_1 drive_2
The drive_1 is A: or B:, where the installation disk located. The
drive_2 is the hard disk name, C: or D:.
Thus, to install NJStar from drive A: to drive C:, enter the following
A:\> INSTALL A: C:
4. The installation program will create a subdirectory, \NJ200, at
drive C: or D: at user's choice, for NJStar. Then, it will install
files from floppy disk to hard disk. It will prompt user for other
disks if necessary.
5. When finishes, the installation program will prompt user to modify
user's PATH statement and add an environment variable, NJZK, if
6. Follow Step 5 and after in the guidelines for installing NJStar
