DeskMan/2 provides three methods for installation - Express, Custom, and CID (Configuration, Installation, and Distribution).
Use Express install if you wish to select one location for all the components' program files and an optionally separate location for all the supporting data files (i.e. two locations, total).
Use Custom install if you wish to:
Use CID to install DeskMan/2 on a large number of computers. CID installations are described in that section.
To begin installing DeskMan/2 using either the Express or Custom methods:
The Installation Tool will automatically remove the temporary directory and its contents at the successful completion of the installation process.
Before continuing to install the DeskMan/2 programs, take a moment to explore this dialog window. Select the Actions item from the menu bar. In addition to installing DeskMan/2 using either the Express or Custom methods, using this menu you can also:
Make no selections from this menu at this time.
Select the Default Drive item from the menu bar, and the DeskMan/2 Installation Tool will open a dialog window asking you to select the drive on which to install the DeskMan/2 components.
Whether using the Express or Custom installation method, you can specify the drives and paths on which to install the components. Changing the default drive using this menu item makes this process much simpler, and you can still designate the locations of selected items.
Select the default drive that matches your needs, then click your
left mouse button> on the button labeled OK.
At the bottom of the Welcome window, above the buttons, the DeskMan/2 Installation Tool displays the current installation configuration file. The DeskMan/2 Installation Tool creates this file when you install the DeskMan/2 components, and uses it to save all your installation selections.
If this is your first installation, this file does not yet exist. You can change the name or location of this file, and you can create and select multiple files if you wish. If you should later need to reinstall DeskMan/2, you can simplify your efforts by using this file to tell the DeskMan/2 Installation Tool how to install the components.
