Installing MindTerm

We have included an installer for Windows based systems to use. You can find the installer in x:/dosutils/mindterm/setup.exe. You can type in the command by clicking the Start button, then selecting Run. You can also click on My Computer, select you CD-ROM drive, then the dosutils folder, followed by the mindterm folder and finally selecting the setup.exe file. This will start the MindTerm installer.

Once the installer starts, you will have a few options. You will have to choose the directory you wish to install MindTerm into. The default is c:\Program Files\mindterm. We suggest leaving the default. You can then select the installer to create an icon on your desktop for MindTerm and/or an icon in your Start Menu. These are both turned on by default.

Once you have made your selection, select Install, which will confirm your selections. If you are satisfied with your settings select Ok and MindTerm will start installing. You will see all the MindTerm files scrolling in the window as they are installed. When the installation is done a message box will appear saying: ``MindTerm installation successful!''. You can close this box and now use MindTerm. If you selected the option to install the icon on your desktop you will see it there. If you also had the installer create the Start Menu icon you will find Start Menu->Programs->MindTerm->MindTerm and Readme. The readme is detailed information about MindTerm and how to use it. We will be covering a general usage of MindTerm in the next section.
