Installing the programme
If you are planning
to install the programme on a machine running Windows
NT/2000/XP,Vista,Win7, you must have administrative rights to do this.
On machines running one of the older systems (Windows98/ME), there are
no file or directory rights so anyone may install it.
You may use the
defaults offered by the installation programme if you wish, but you may
place it anywhere on your system. If more than one person is to be able
to use the programme, make sure to check the little "All Users" box.
The programme and help files will be copied to a directory of your choice.
Just before the
installation terminates and the final installation screen appears, you
are given the opportunity to set the permissions on the installation
directory and its subdirectory so that non-administrative users may
update the profiles themselves. There is a little check box which
causes the installation programme to spawn a system programme called
xcacls.exe when it closes, and this in turn sets permissions on the
directories and files appropriately. If unchecked, you as
administrator, must set the permissions manually. If for some reason,
xcacls.exe can not perform the required function, the installation
programme may hang. In that case, you can safely terminate it using the
Task Manager, but you will have to set the permissions by hand.
Under Windows XP, Vista, Win7, these operations can be done using the Windows Explorer.
To set, view,
change, or remove special permissions for files and folders open the
Windows Explorer, and then locate the file or folder for which you want
to set special permissions. Right-click the file or folder, click
Properties, and then click the Security tab if it is visible.
To display the Security tab if it is not visible:
Open Folder Options in Control Panel.
Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
Click Appearance and Themes, and then click Folder Options.
On the View tab, under Advanced settings, clear the check box "Use simple file sharing".
read/write/modify/execute access rights on the AirPhoto directory and
its sub-directories setup (enable viewing hidden files), plugins,
csvdata. Deny all other rights.
Administrators should check this with XCALC.EXE in command line mode. If all is well you should see something like:
