Installing WinSpeed©

HOW TO INSTALL WINSPEED FROM A CD ON A WINDOWS 7,8, OR 10 COMPUTER Step One - Install the WinSpeed Application

1. Insert CD in drive. Note the drive letter (normally D). If your drive letter is different from D, use that letter when you type items below. 2. From Desktop, access the RUN option: Windows 10:Right-click the window icon (lower left corner of your screen). Select RUN from the dropdown list. Windows 7 or 8:  Hold down the Windows key (in START) and type the letter R. This brings up the RUN option. 3. Type D:\Setup.exe and click OK. (The backslash \ is different from the forward slash / on your keyboard.) 4. Click Yes if you get a "User Account Control" popup that says "Do you want to allow this app from an unknown publisher to makes changes to your PC?" 5. Click Next. The setup wizard will guide you through the installation process. 6. On the "Choose Destination Location" popup, leave the destination set at C:\WinSpeed. This is where WinSpeed© should be installed. 7. Click Next. 8. On the "Information" popup where it says "Setup is Complete" Click OK.

Step Two - Install DAO

1. From Desktop, right-click the window icon (lower left corner of your screen). 2. Select RUN from the dropdown list. 3. Type D:\DAO_64 and click OK. Replace the "D" with your CD Drive Letter. (The backslash \ is different from the forward slash / on your keyboard.) 4. Double-click SETUP.EXE from the list. You may not see the .EXE on your list. Select the one with Type "Application". 5. Click Yes if you get a "User Account Control" popup that says "Do you want to allow this app from an unknown publisher to makes changes to your PC?" 6. Wait while the Install Wizard initializes. Then you get the "DAO FOR THE GURPS Character Generator" screen. Click Next. 7. On the "Choose Destination Location" screen click "Browse" 8. Replace the path with C:\Windows\syswow64 and click OK. (Type this path carefully. It must be exactly as shown above. Also, be sure to use only lower case letters in syswow64.) 9. Click Next 10. Click Finish

Step Three - Create WinSpeed© Application Shortcut On the Desktop

(If you already had a WinSpeed shortcut, right mouse-click it and delete it first.)

1. In the File Explorer find the C:\Winspeed\Program folder. 2. Right-click the Winspeed.exe file (it is the application one). 3. Click "Create Shortcut". 4. Drag the Winspeed shortcut file to your desktop and double-click it to open WinSpeed©. If you get a DAO Error 159 when you start up WinSpeed©, try step two again and be very careful typing the C:\Windows\syswow64 path name. It must be exact. The first time you start up WinSpeed© on a computer you will be prompted to enter a keyword. Call the AU Office (405-848-5801) or email augrow@aol.com to get the keyword
