                             Registering WinDex

Do I have to pay for WinDex?  Basically, YES...  although you don't have to
pay before you decide if you will continue using it.  WinDex is not free -
it is Shareware.  You get to try it out, without obligation, to see if it's a
program that you are likely to continue using.  However, after evaluating
the program, you are required to either pay for it or to quit using it.
WinDex was released as shareware because it is a useful Windows Rolodex
program, and you will probably want to continue using it.  Therefore, you 
should register soon in order to take advantage of the introductory offer.  
There are many benefits to registering WinDex immediately.  Don't miss out.

How do I register?  It's easy!  To register WinDex, you need to print the 
file REGISTER.FRM, then fill it out and enclose a check or money
order and mail it to the address shown. 

How much does it cost?  You can register WinDex V1.0 for as little $20 in 
the US.  You can get additional copies for even less.  Site licenses are 
also available for large businesses (write to the address on the 
registration form for the details).

Copies  Cost
------  -----------
1       $20.00 Each
5       $17.50 Each
20      $15.00 Each
100     $12.00 Each

What do I get for registering?

Price Protection:  The next release of WinDex may have a higher price.  For 
only $20.00, you get the right to use this version of WinDex, plus all future

be repeated. So to insure that you can use future versions, register now.

absolute latest release of WinDex.

New Versions:  If you want to be notified of new versions automatically, you

                         WinDex Release Notes

WinDex V1.0 - Released 1/18/93
(c) 1993 - John Miller - EastWin Software

WinDex V1.1 - Released 3/1/93
(c) 1993 - John Miller - EastWin Software


V1.1 adds a dialer feature that can be used to dial the phone for you.  
The first time you use the dialer, check the dial command to make 
sure it is appropriate for your modem and phone line.  If you have Centrex 
lines, change the dial command to "ATDT9,".

In order to use the Dialer, you have to make your modem settings from 
Control panel.  Modem settings shouldn't matter though, as WinDex only sends
a dial command then hangs up the modem.

WinDex will only work with modems that support the Hayes command set.  It
should work with any internal or external modem.  However, due to limited
resources, it has only been tested with a few different modems.

Support for Windows 3.0:

WinDex V1.0 did not support Windows 3.0.  This was due to the code that
handled the "Always On Top" feature.  In WinDex V1.1, this code checks
the Windows version, and only makes a change in Windows 3.1.  WinDex 1.1
will now run on Windows 3.0 (without the Always On Top feature).
