Getting started on a Windows computer with your MacGAMUT 6 disc These step-by-step instructions will get you started on any Windows computer, assuming you have your own Registration Number, which you’ll find printed on the Getting Started folder inside your MacGAMUT 6 CD case. Getting started with MacGAMUT 6 is EASY, but it's still a good idea to follow these printed instructions as you proceed step by step, marking off each step as you complete it. Follow these steps to install MacGAMUT 6 from your disc: 1. If your Windows computer isn't already on, start it up. Put your MacGAMUT 6 CD in the disc drive and wait for the computer to recognize it. 2. Install MacGAMUT 6 software and files from your CD: a. From your computer's desktop or Start menu, double-click Computer. b. Double-click the MacGAMUT 6 CD to open it. c. Double-click the MacGAMUT Installer Folder to open it. d. Double-click setup.exe (the setup icon that looks like tiny white sailboats on a blue sea), and follow the instructions to install MacGAMUT 6. e. If you are installing MacGAMUT 6 for the first time, you will need to restart your computer after the installation process is finished. f. The program installs in a folder labeled MacGAMUT 6. In Windows 8, you can tap or click a MacGAMUT 6 tile. In Windows 7 and earlier, select from the MacGAMUT 6 folder under All Programs in the Start menu. g. You’ll find the Text Files and Video Tutorials inside the MacGAMUT Work Folder installed in your computer’s Documents folder. This is also the best place to save your startMG6.mgs file and any custom presets or dictation library files your instructor may give you. 3. If you have not yet registered using the Registration Number printed on the Getting Started folder inside your CD case to receive your own personal startMG6.mgs file, go to www.macgamut.com to register now. a. Click the Register link on the left-hand side of the screen to get started, and follow the step-by-step registration procedure. b. Your personal startMG6.mgs file will be generated automatically, and you can download it directly from the “Registration complete!” page. Just right-click the link and select “save,” “save target as,” “save as,” or “download linked file as,” depending on your browser. To make it easy to 2 find your startMG6.mgs file whenever you want to work on MacGAMUT, save it in the MacGAMUT Work Folder installed in your computer’s Documents folder. c. Please read the important info included on that “Registration Complete!” page. If a software update is available, for instance, there will be a link to the Installers page where you can download and install the latest updated Web Installer. Even if you are not registering on your own computer, you can still download and save the Web Installer so you can install it later on your own computer. Keep in mind that if you keep your MacGAMUT software up to date, you’re much less likely to run into possible bugs in the software! 4. The quickest way to start MacGAMUT is by simply double-clicking the startMG6.mgs file you’ve saved in your MacGAMUT Work Folder. 5. After the colorful opening screen, the Check Name and Presets screen asks you to verify that the file you’ve opened is really your own startMG6.mgs file. This screen also includes the date you last used MacGAMUT. The first time you use your new startMG6.mgs file, "new file" will appear in place of the date. Get in the habit of double-checking that “date last opened” to be sure you are opening the same file you used last time rather than an older BACKUP version which does not include records of your most recent work. 6. From this point, you can begin working on MacGAMUT 6. If you want some pointers about how to keep track of your startMG6.mgs file so you don’t risk losing credit for the work you’ve done, or if you’d like some help getting started using the software quickly and easily, watch the two videos in the Video Tutorials folder inside the MacGAMUT Work Folder installed in your computer’s Documents folder. If you have any difficulties or questions as you work on MacGAMUT, the answers are probably in the on-screen Help menu at the top of every exercise screen. If you need more information than you find under Help, check out the User Guide 6 file you’ll find in the Text Files folder inside the MacGAMUT Work Folder installed in your computer’s Documents folder. 7. At the end of every session on MacGAMUT 6, it's a good idea to make a back-up copy of your startMG6.mgs file, just to be safe. Every time you quit work on MacGAMUT, the software invites you to make a back-up copy and even suggests a name which includes the current date. It’s always a good idea to keep a back-up copy of your startMG6.mgs file on a different drive than your working startMG6.mgs file. That way, if you happen to lose your working file, you’ve still got the back-up copy. 8. The next time you use MacGAMUT 6, getting started will be much easier. You’ll already have your startMG6.mgs, so you won’t have to register again. And you’ll only have to reinstall the software from your CD (and any updated 3 Web Installer you’ve downloaded) if you are working on a computer that doesn’t have the latest MacGAMUT software installed. If you have followed these step-by-step instructions and are still having difficulties, you probably haven't followed these instructions step-by-step. Go back to the start and try again, marking off each step as you complete it. If you still can't figure out how to get started with MacGAMUT 6, go to our Tech Support page at www.macgamut.com where you can e-mail us with the details of your problem or check out other possible solutions. Note: If you’ll be using MacGAMUT 6 only on your own computer, it's best to store your startMG6.mgs file in your MacGAMUT Work Folder in your Documents folder on your computer’s hard drive. If you’re switching from one computer to another, you can e-mail your file to yourself, store it on a server, or carry it back and forth on a flash drive or other removable media. But if you plan to e-mail your file, please see the Questions about sending files as e-mail attachments section on the MacGAMUT FAQs page at www.macgamut.com.
