Installing the System

See the file README on the distribution diskette for the most current instructions.

Installing WhAEM on Your Hard Disk

The installation procedures for WhAEM are facilitated by the INSTALL.EXE program on the distribution disk. The installation program will locate potential target drives on the system, install the products in a target directory specified by the user and, when necessary, make any necessary changes to your CONFIG.SYS and AUTOEXEC.BAT files.

To install, place the distribution disk in drive A: or B: and switch your logged drive to the floppy drive:

C:\> A: <Enter>
or, if using drive B:,
C:\> B: <Enter>

Next, run the installation program:

A:\> INSTALL <Enter>
B:\> INSTALL <Enter

The INSTALL program will determine which available drives can be used for the installation and request an installation directory (default is C:\WHAEM). Once all the files are unpacked, you will have the opportunity to let INSTALL make changes to your AUTOEXEC.BAT and CONFIG.SYS files. The changes to these files can be made directly, in which case the old versions will be backed up, or changes may be saved to a new file and implemented in AUTOEXEC.BAT and CONFIG.SYS by the user. If changes are required, WhAEM will not operate properly until they are made and the system is rebooted with the changes made, in order for them to take effect.
