2.3. Installation procedure

You must remove any previous (Beta) versions of RMHost before installing this version. Failure to do this might lead to unpredictable results.

To install RMHost 1.0 for Windows:

  1. Insert the CD into the CD-ROM drive. The setup program starts. (If the setup program does not start, run setup.exe in the top-level directory of the CD-ROM.) A splash screen is displayed, followed by a Welcome screen.

  2. Click Next. A license agreement window is displayed.

  3. To continue the installation process, you must accept the terms of the agreement to install RMHost 1.0.

    If you do not accept the terms, click No. In this case, you can return the software to the supplier for a refund.

    If you accept the terms of the license agreement, click Yes. An information window is displayed, explaining the prerequisite products that must be installed on your system before you install RMHost. If you do not have the required products, and you want to exit installation, click Cancel. Otherwise, click Next. A selection window is displayed, where you must select one of the following setup types:

    • Compact

    • Custom

    • Full.

    A different set of components is installed with each option. Select your desired setup type. Compact installation contains all components in a full installation, except there is no installation of the PDF versions of the documentation. If you select Compact or Full, go to step 5.

  4. If you select Custom as the setup type, you are offered a choice of product components to install:

    • RealMonitor host controller (includes the Windows help file)

    • PDF documents

    • Dynatext documents.

    Check (select) or uncheck (deselect) the desired components to install. The amount of disk space required for your intended selection, and the amount of disk space available, is displayed. Click Next to continue. If you select more components than you have room for on your disk, an error message is displayed.

  5. If ADS 1.1 or later is installed on your system, the installer lists the settings chosen for this installation. If you want to change any of these options, click Back successively to return to previous screens.

    Otherwise, click Next. If you selected a Compact installation, go to step 6. If you selected a Full installation, or selected a Custom installation to include PDF documents, a message is displayed explaining how to install the Adobe Acrobat Reader (see Adobe Acrobat Reader). Click OK.

  6. The installer begins copying files onto your system. As RMHost is installed, a progress window is displayed. When complete, the Setup Complete window is displayed. You are then prompted if you want to view the file readme.txt. (Viewing this file is the default setting.) Deselect this box and click OK if you want to exit without viewing this file. Otherwise, click OK and the readme file is displayed.

You can view the online documentation in PDF or DynaText form. See Viewing online documentation.
