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 versions for no extra charge. This offer only applies to V1.1, and may not be repeated. So to insure that you can use future versions, register now. Current Version: When you register, you will get a diskette containing the absolute latest release of WinDex. New Versions: If you want to be notified of new versions automatically, you can ask to be added to the new version mailing list. Every time a major new version is released you will be notified automatically. Your V1.1 license will entitle you to use all new versions of the software for no additional cost. Documentation: When you register, you will receive laser printed documentation that will help you get the most out of WinDex.

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 Dialer: 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).
