Detailed Installation Instructions

The following instructions apply to the Full and Quick versions of the EZ Form update.

  • Locate and remove C:\EZFTemp -- Run Windows Explorer. By default, you'll be looking at the contents of your C: drive. Look for an EZFTemp folder among the folders and files shown in the right-half of the screen. (To arrange the folders in alphabetical order, click on "View" in the menu, then on "Arrange Icons", and finally on "by Name".) Single-click on the EZFTemp folder to highlight it, then press the "Delete" key. Click on YES in response to the deletion confirmation.
  • Run Setup -- Run Windows Explorer. In the list of folders and files in the right-half of the screen, double-click on the EZFTemp folder to open it. Look through the contents of the EZFTemp folder for the file "SETUP.EXE". (If the files in the EZFTemp folder are not listed in alphabetical order, click on "View" in the menu, then on "Arrange Icons", and finally on "by Name".) Double-click on the entry for "SETUP.EXE". Note: The .EXE extension may not be displayed. With the files displayed in alphabetical order, SETUP.EXE will be the first SETUP file listed. To verify this, right-click on the entry in question, then click on "Properties". The "Type" should be Application and the MS-DOS name" should be SETUP.EXE.
  • Complete Setup -- Read the opening screen, then click on Continue . For "Name", enter your name or the tile of your position (e.g., QA Manager). For "Organization", enter your company's name. Click on OK . Click on OK again to confirm the information. Setup proposes installing the EZ Form® update in the folder C:\EZFORM. To accept this default, simply click on OK . However, if your EZ Form installation is not in C:\EZFORM, you must click on "Change Folder" and select the folder which currently contains the EZ Form program; i.e., the folder containing EZF.EXE and EZF32.EXE.) On the next screen, click on the large icon which displays a computer. Leave the Program Group as EzForm and click on Continue . After Setup completes copying files, click on OK .
  • Run EZ Form® -- Go to your Windows desktop, display the Taskbar, click on , then click on Start "(All) Programs". In the list displayed, click on "EZ Form" and then on the "EZ Form" tab which appears.
  • Complete EZ Form® Update -- The first time EZ Form® is run after completing Setup, a secondary installation is performed:

    If this is the only or first computer on which this quick update is being installed...

    Program execution should stop for your input on a screen whose title begins with "Updating from Version". If not, contact Prime Label. The "Current Data Location" input box shows where your data has been found. By default, the "New Data Location" input box shows the same path as the current location box. If you are happy with this, simply click Continue . If, however, you wish to use the installation process to move your data to a new folder, click the Specify New Data Location button, specify the new folder in which your data is to reside, then click OK . If you are advised that the new folder does not exists, respond appropriately. Finally, with the "New Data Location" box reading as desired, click Continue Installation of Update .

    EZ Form® databases will now be created, updated, and re-indexed. When you are informed that EZ Form® installation is complete, click on Continue. Read and respond to additional screens as appropriate until you come to the EZ Form® main screen.

    Program execution should stop for your input on a screen whose title begins with "Connect To / Rebuild Version". If not, contact Prime Label. The "Current Data Location" input box shows where your already-updated data has been found. Generally speaking, there should be no need to rebuild the data, so simply click on Connect to Existing ... Data . Since your data has already been updated to the current version, databases will not be rebuilt or reindexed. Program execution will simply continue with user login, etc.
