How to install from the download (in three easy steps!)


These notes refer to the download of the latest version of the software. Other downloads (e.g. the manual) are done in a similar manner.

1. Exit from the package if it is currently running.

2. Click on the 'Download' button.  A dialogue will ask you if you wish to 'Open' or 'Save' the file. I've always preferred to 'Save' as, if the installation needs to be repeated, or I wish to install in more than one place, then 'Save'ing the download file makes this easy.  I always save it to my desktop, then, when I have completely finished with the download, I can delete it. An example of this dialogue is shown below.



3. Once you have completed the download to your desktop exit from the web site (having read and maybe even have printed the notes concerning the latest enhancements) and double-click on the download on your desktop. The download is called  CE.zip.  When you double-click on it, it will open into 'winzip', as shown below.



Click on the 'Extract' button and navigate to your \CE directory. An example of this is shown below.



If you do not know where your \ce directory is then you can find out by right-clicking on your desktop short-cut and selecting 'Properties'. The location will be displayed as the target. An example of this is shown below.


Copy and paste, or simply type, the target (e.g. c:\ce) into the 'Extract to' field on the extract dialogue (see two illustrations back...) and then click the 'Extract' button in the top right hand corner of the window. If you are asked whether or not you wish to overwrite the existing file, then the answer is 'Yes'. That is exactly what you are trying to do - to replace the old version with the new one.

N.B.  Installing a new version of the program will NOT touch your data. Your data lives in a database named e.g. ce2005.mdb and this is not affected by installing a new version of the program.

If you wish to print out these instructions then go to the top left hand corner of the screen now, and select File / Print
