When you choose "Install Design-Ease 7" from the main menu, the setup program will warn you if you do not have the proper authority to install system files. You will need to log out of your current account and log in as an administrator then restart the installation. Windows 2000 and later will give you an opportunity to enter a suitable account and password if you don't have administrative rights
Help file on network
A recent security change in XP prevents it from opening HTML help files that reside on a LAN or the Internet. If the de7HelpFile.chm file doesn't work from your network drive see the Microsoft support document, http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=896054
Follow the instruction for Method 2 and set the MaxAllowedZone value to 1 to permit LAN access.
