Introduction

The enclosed WG0668 disks contain advanced help files and graphical demos that provide a detailed overview of standard features in Microsoft Mail and Schedule+.

The following information explains how to add the advanced help files and demos to your current Windows for Workgroups Mail and Schedule+ applications and how to use the help files and demos.

  1. Quit Microsoft Windows.
  2. Change to the Windows directory by typing the following lines at the MS-DOS command prompt and pressing ENTER after each line

          cd \
          cd \<windows>

    where <windows> is the path to your Windows directory. For example:

          cd \win31
  3. Insert Disk 1 of the enclosed WG0668 disks in your floppy disk drive.
  4. Copy the help and demo files to the Windows directory by typing the following at the MS-DOS command prompt and pressing ENTER

          copy <drive>:\*.*

    where <drive> is the floppy disk drive containing the WG0668 disk. For example:

          copy b:\*.*
  5. Remove Disk 1 from your floppy disk drive and insert Disk 2.
  6. Repeat step 4.
