This program, (fondly referred to by the programmers
as "G-E" and we refer to the program as "G-E" in this manual),
is written for the Windows environment and requires an IBM or compatible system
The minimum system requirements are:
An IBM or compatible
machine with 166Mhz processor.
64MB ram. 128MB for XP, NT & 2K.
Windows 9x, ME XP NT 2K.
Removable media drive for backups. Do yourself
a favour, get a "Flash Drive".
A printer with Windows driver set
Screen resolution set to a minimum of 800x600.
When the program is started for the first time after installation, the
initial setup dialogue is displayed. If the program is installed in New-Zealand,
check the box marked: "Check this box if you are in New-Zealand".
This causes the New-Zealand specific files to be installed. Leave the check
box blank if installing outside New-Zealand.
If you wish to enable the system
password, (the password protects various editing, sensitive financial information
and deletions) enter a password into the "Password" field. Enter the
same password in the "Confirm" field to check the entry. (The password
is "case sensitive"). Leave the fields blank to disable the password.
The password can be enabled at any time.

The "About" dialogue
is displayed showing how we may be contacted for answers to questions, support
and registration codes. This screen is available at any time within the program.
Click Ok on the About dialogue to clear it from the screen and present the Main
Menu. Installation is now complete.
If you have installed the software for evaluation
purposes and as yet have not purchased the registration code, the system will
only allow 100 invoices to be generated. A reminder of this and the number of
remaining invoices will be shown each time a new work order is opened. This
reminder is not shown when the system is registered with a valid code. After
the 100th invoice has been generated, G-E will cease to function until a valid
registration code is entered. If you evaluate the software and decide to purchase
a registration code, please do not wait until your last "100th free"
invoice is generated. Doing so will render you unable to access your data until
you register the software!
