If you try a Shareware program and continue using it, you are expected to register. Individual programs differ on details -- some request registration while others require it, some specify a maximum trial period. With registration, you get anything from the simple right to continue using the software to an updated program and a printed manual. Copyright laws apply to both Shareware and retail software, and the copyright holder retains all rights, with a few specific exceptions as stated below. Shareware authors are accomplished programmers, just like retail authors, and the programs are of comparable quality. (In both cases, there are good programs and bad ones!) The main difference is in the method of distribution. The author specifically grants the right to copy and distribute the software, either to all and sundry or to a specific group. For example, some authors require written permission before a commercial disk vendor may copy their Shareware. Shareware is a distribution method, not a type of software. You should find software that suits your needs and pocketbook, whether it's retail or Shareware. The Shareware system makes fitting your needs easier, because you can try before you buy. And because the overhead is lower, prices are lower also. Shareware has the ultimate money-back guarantee -- if you don't use the product, you don't pay for it. ASP Ombudsman Policy This program is produced by a member of the Association of Shareware Professionals (ASP). ASP wants to make sure that the shareware principle works for you. If you are unable to resolve a shareware-related problem with an ASP member by contacting the member directly, ASP may be able to help. The ASP Ombudsman can help you resolve a dispute or problem with an ASP member, but does not provide technical support for members' products. Please write to the ASP Ombudsman at 545 Grover Road, Muskegon, MI 49442-9427 or send a Compuserve message via CompuServe Mail to ASP Ombudsman 70007,3536 1 LIMITED WARRANTY AND DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTY THIS SOFTWARE AND ACCOMPANYING WRITTEN MATERIALS (INCLUDING INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE) ARE PROVIDES "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND.

You cannot just copy the files from the Professional Capture Systems disk to your hard disk. The files on the distribution disk are packed in a special way to save space. The setup program unpacks those files and builds them on your working disk. Installation from within Microsoft Windows 1. Make Windows' "Program Manager" the active window. 2. From Windows' "Program Manager", select "File", then select "Run". This will open the "Run" dialog box. Place the copy of Professional Capture Systems in your floppy drive. Now, the dialog box needs for you to type in the command that will run the Professional Capture Systems installation program. * If your floppy disk goes in your Drive "A", type: A:SETUP Leave the "Run Minimized" box un-selected, and click the "OK" command button (or press "Enter"). * If your floppy disk goes in your Drive "B", type: B:SETUP Leave the "Run Minimized" box un-selected, and click the "OK" command button (or press "Enter"). 3. Fill in the required information in the dialog box. * It will ask you for the "Source Drive and Directory" designation where your Professional Capture Systems floppy disk is located. (This is the same floppy drive designation you typed in the previous step before the word "setup".) * It will ask you for the hard disk "Destination Drive and Directory" designation on which you want it to install Professional Capture Systems. It will suggest a directory named "C:\PCS". If you want the Professional Capture Systems program files installed on a different drive or directory, just click the pointer to the right of the characters you want to change, backspace over the ones you want to erase, then type in the new designation. * It will automatically build a Professional Capture Systems icon and add it to "Program Manager". Accept the "Yes" (already selected by default) if you do want it to do this. Select "No" if you do not. 4. Professional Capture Systems Setup will unpack the necessary files (for both WinCapture and DosCapture) and place them into your directory. 5. Professional Capture Systems Setup will notify you when the installation is completed. 3 Installing Professional Capture Systems (continued) Installation from DOS 1. Place the copy of Professional Capture Systems in your floppy drive. Now, at the DOS prompt you will need to type in the command that will run the Professional Capture Systems installation program. * If your floppy disk goes in your Drive "A", type: A:SETUP * If your floppy disk goes in your Drive "B", type: B:SETUP 2. If the setup program cannot find the file PCS.CMP, it will ask you for the drive and directory where it can be found. If the setup program finds PCS.CMP this step will be skipped. If you are asked for the drive and directory, you should type in the drive name followed by a colon and slash and then the directory. The following is an example. B:\ 3. The setup program will ask you for the hard disk "Destination Drive and Directory" designation on which you want it to install Professional Capture Systems. 4. Professional Capture Systems Setup will unpack the necessary files (for both WinCapture and DosCapture) and place them into your directory. 5.
