Downloading the WIMOVAC disks
WIMOVAC is made up of many files which have to be installed into various directories on
a computers hard disk and requires that certain OLE functions are registered with the
Windows operating system.
Normally WIMOVAC is distributed on 6 floppy disks each with a capacity of 1.4Mb but in
order to facilitate deployment of WIMOVAC over the Internet all of these file have been
compressed into a single executable file which when downloaded and run will expand into
the files necessary for installation.
Start by downloading the WIMOVAC Internet file appropriate for your operating system.
Currently there a 2 versions of WIMOVAC available. A 16 bit version suitable for Windows
3.1 or Windows for Workgroups and a 32 bit version suitable for Windows 95 and Windows NT
version 3.51 and later. Ensure that you select the appropriate download file and to save
the file when it is downloaded to an empty directory on your hard disk.
Once the file is downloaded use your Windows File Manager to run the file which will
then automatically decompress to give all of the files necessary for WIMOVAC installation.
The installation program will run automatically after decompression and will install the
Wimovac programs and documents into appropriate directories on your hard disk for you.
