How to install Morning Flight
Posted: 28 Oct 2005 08:17 pm
You've downloaded Morning Flight. What's the next step? If you elected to Save rather than Run the Setup file, go to the directory into which you saved the download. Look for an application called MFSetupF.exe for the Free Edition or MFSetupS.exe for the Silver. Double-click on it to start the installation, then follow the instructions on the screen. Note that the Free Edition is a bona fide free program - yours to keep! It won't self-destruct after a preset trial period, nor will you need a serial number to run it.
Installing the Silver Edition
Unlike the free version, the Silver Edition includes password security. Whoever installs the program and enters his or her name during Pre-Launch will automatically become the Administrator. The second time you load the Silver Edition, you will need to sign in. Your user name will be your initials. Since you haven't assigned yourself a password yet, leave the password field blank and click OK. Password use is optional. If you're not concerned about security, you may find it convenient to keep yourself signed in.
Installing for VISTA
Morning Flight programs will run under Vista without modification, provided there is only one user per machine. If you expect to set up multiple User Accounts on the same computer, remove "Program Files" from the default path when you install the program. That will prevent Vista from creating separate data files for each user. In other words, install Morning Flight into
C:\PrintFire\MorningFlight, not C:\Program Files\PrintFire\MorningFlight.
Under Vista, you'll need to install Morning Flight as Administrator: Right-click on MFSetupF.exe (Free Edition) or MFSetupS.exe (Silver Edition), then select "Run as administrator" from the pop-up menu.
After the Installation
When either edition loads for the first time, it will take from 3 to 5 minutes to create the data files. During that time you'll see only the main menu bar and an hour glass. Subsequent program loads will take just seconds.
