Can I Install AddressWise without Writing to the System Directory?

Some Windows NT installations ban the writing of files to the main System Directory.

You will need a special version of AddressWise, which puts the Windows system files in the c:\ecac directory. This can be obtained from your AddressWise supplier.

How do I Install AddressWise from a CD-ROM?

AddressWise has been loaded into a single .exe file using the standard Windows install program Install Shield.

Just run the program, AdWFul10.exe, to install AddressWise.

Answer all the questions.

Note that if you want to use both FaxWise and AddressWise, then you should install them in the same directory.

How do I Install AddressWise from the Internet?

Go to the AddressWise Download Page, fill in the registration form and then download the software as instructed.

Installation is then as for the CD-ROM. The filename is the same - AdWFul10.exe.

How do I Upgrade my Version of AddressWise?

Go to the AddressWise Download Page, fill in the registration form and then download the software as instructed.

As you already have a registered copy of AddressWise, download the smaller upgrade version, which does not contain the numerous Microsoft run routines.

Installation is then as for the CD-ROM. The filename would usually be the upgrade - AdWUpd10.exe.

Should I Install AddressWise before or after FaxWise?

Install FaxWise first.

If you don't and you don't find the AddressWise shortcut in the FaxWise program group in the Start menu, then re-install AddressWise.

Why is c:\ecac the AddressWise/FaxWise Directory?

Ask FaxWise!

Seriously though! Does it matter?
