The following information is for those users who are curious and want to know, or wish to Uninstall My-T-Soft & do not have the original distribution media.
Setup is an IMG installer and uses INSTALL.XML as a script to perform installation steps. The installation is straightforward - establish the installation folder, copy in a compressed package of files (PKG), extract it, set registry values, and perform post installation steps.
Post Installation information: IMGUTIL.EXE performs various post installation tasks. For reference, if the installation media has LICENSE.LIC in the same folder as SETUP.EXE, or in the \LICENSE folder, IMGUTIL will copy this into the installation folder (this is useful for evaluation and other types of licensing). If the installation media has a DK??????.ZIP file in the same folder as SETUP.EXE, or in the \DEVKIT folder, it will be copied to the installation folder.
For reference information, you can refer to the INSTALL.XML used by the IMG SETUP.EXE for all post installation operations.
SETUP.EXE will sense if My-T-Soft is Installed or not. If My-T-Soft is not installed, then Install must be checked to Install the My-T-Soft software. If My-T-Soft is already installed, you may Un-Install by selecting the Un-Install option and selecting OK throughout the following screens.
Single File Self-Extracting/Self-Installing file: For ease of transfer/copying, all IMG releases have a single executable file that acts as a wrapper for the installation files. The general approach is to extract an INSTALL.PKG file from the executable into the user's local Temp folder, and then extract the files from INSTALL.PKG. These consist of SETUP.exe/INSTALL.XML/[Product].PKG (which generally match the disc based install). Then SETUP.exe is run, performing the normal install. When the original executable is closed, it cleans up the extracted files from the Temp folder location.
