Windows Installation

Epsilon for Windows is provided as a self-installing Windows executable. Run the program


where r represents your CD-ROM drive.

The installation program installs the GUI version of Epsilon for Windows, and the Win32 console version. We named the Windows GUI version epsilon.exe and the console version epsilonc.exe.

The installation program creates program items to run Epsilon. You can recreate them, set up file associations, change the registration information shown in Epsilon's About box, and do similar reconfiguration tasks by running Epsilon's configure-epsilon command.

The installer also sets the registry entry Software\Lugaru\Epsilon\EpsPathversion in the HKEY_CURRENT_USER hierarchy to include the name of the directory in which you installed Epsilon (where version represents Epsilon's version number).

Under Windows 95/98/ME, the installation program directs the system to install Epsilon's VxD each time it starts, by creating the registry entry System\CurrentControlSet\Services\VxD\Epsilonversion\StaticVxD in the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE hierarchy. If you're running Windows 95/98/ME, the program will warn that you must restart Windows before the concurrent process will work.

You can uninstall Epsilon by using the "Programs and Features" Control Panel (called "Add/Remove Programs" prior to Windows Vista).
