Before you begin ensure that you have at least 15MB free disks space
on your hard disk. You can do this by using the RIGHT mouse button
to click on the c: drive icon. (You can find the c: drive icon by
double clicking on "My Computer"). Then choose "Properties". The free
space must be at least 15MB.
You can download the latest version of 1st Class GradeBook from our
web site at http://www.1st-class-software.com/download.html Once on
the download web page click on the appropriate link to begin
downloading. Most browsers will then ask you where you would like
to save the file to. You can choose any directory you like EXCEPT
the c:\1stclass directory but do take note of where you are saving
it to. Do NOT try saving to diskette since the file is too large to
fit on one diskette. (After installing successfully you can use the
TOOLS - MAKE INSTALL DISKS to make two installation disks to take
to another computer.)
After the download is complete you should run the file you have
just downloaded. You should be able to find this file since you
just noted where you saved it to. You should get a screen that
allows you the option of choosing SETUP. Click on the SETUP button.
Once the unzipping process is complete the setup program for
1st Class GradeBook will automatically begin. Choose the appropriate
options. If you are unsure choose the defaults. After the install
is complete and you have re-started windows run 1st Class GradeBook.
Check the version number to ensure that your installation was successful.
You can check what version of 1st Class GradeBook you currently have
installed by going to the main 1st Class GradeBook screen and choosing
ABOUT 1ST CLASS GRADEBOOK from the HELP menu. The version number
should look something like 7.0s.
*** IMPORTANT: If you run into trouble installing the gradebook make
sure you check the following:
1) If you are installing on Windows 2000 or NT or on a network make
sure you are logged in as administrator with full permissions.
2) Disable "Fool Proof" or a similar software that protects and
restores directories to their original state after each reboot, if
you are running such software.
