OVERVIEW
1.2.2 Installing the Setup Software
To use the VFD Setup Software (FR-SW0-SETUP-WE), the files included in the setup disks must be installed
onto the personal computer.
If the former version of VFD setup software has been installed, delete it before starting the installation of the
latest one.
To install the VFD Setup Software, use the setup program (SETUP.EXE) on the Setup Disk (CD-ROM). The
setup program creates a directory on the specified hard disk and copies the required files.
Note: 1. Since the files in the Setup Disk are compressed, the VFD Setup Software will not operate by
merely copying the files. Always use the setup program to install the software.
2. Install the software in accordance with the Windows installation procedure.
! Installation procedure
Use the following procedure to register (install) the VFD Setup Software onto
the hard disk drive of the personal computer:
(1) Insert the CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive.
(2) Press the [Start] button and choose the [Run] command.
Note: Shut down any other applications that are running.
(3) Running the installation program
1) The [Run] dialog box appears.
2) Type "D:\SETUP" (use half-size letters) in [Open] and click the [OK] button or press the
