T÷lvuor­abˇkin - various procedures


This page shows some procedures for various specific tasks. It is recommended that you download an updated version of the program before you undertake some of these tasks:

Download an updated version of T÷lvuor­abˇkin.


PROCEDURES

Installing onto a network

  1. Please use the CD to install the software package onto your network server. This can be done from the server itself or from a workstation that has full access rights to the location (drive and folder) that will be used.
  2. Install an updated version from the floppy disk included in the package or, better still, download the latest version from the link at the top of this page.
  3. From each workstation, find the location of the installed program and run the file Setup.exe. This will install the software on the client.
  4. If you prefer to achieve a "silent setup", which means that the setup program will run without any user intervention requests on clients, please read further instructions in the Readme.wri file located in the program's folder.


Remove T÷lvuor­abˇkin

Below is a quick way to remove T÷lvuor­abˇkin. The procedure does not completely remove everything. If you need to do that, see next procedure.

  1. Use the Add/Remove Programs icon in Control Panel (Start-button, Settings, Control Panel) to remove everything that the uninstallation program is capable of removing.
  2. The uninstallation routine will probably report that it couldn't remove all components. This is due to the fact that when you run T÷lvuor­abˇkin it creates some files, such as the supplementary dictionary, that the uninstallation just shouldn't remove, because a supplementary dictionary can conceivably contain some additions from the user. You must, therefore, remove these files by hand if you don't want them anymore. Start Windows Explorer, find the folder that contains T÷lvuor­abˇkin (usually C:\Program Files\Ordabok or C:\Ordabok) and delete the files from the folder. Note that the file Auka.dal may contain dictionary entries from the user, but if you are confident that you haven't modified or created new entries in the program, you can delete this file as well.

It should be noted that even if you remove T÷lvuor­abˇkin and then install it again, this does not subtract from the number of times you are allowed to register your licence. Your licences only decrease if the CD-number is registered on a different computer or on the same computer after Windows been removed and reinstalled.


Remove T÷lvuor­abˇkin completely

  1. From T÷lvuor­abˇkin, use Kostir-Taka T÷lvuor­abˇkina ˙t ˙r Word to remove the program's menu commands from the Tools menu in Word.
  2. Use the Add/Remove Programs icon in Control Panel (Start-button, Settings, Control Panel) to remove everything that the uninstallation program is capable of removing.
  3. The uninstallation routine will probably report that it couldn't remove all components. This is due to the fact that when you run T÷lvuor­abˇkin it creates some files, such as the supplementary dictionary, that the uninstallation just shouldn't remove, because a supplementary dictionary can conceivably contain some additions from the user. You must, therefore, remove these files by hand if you don't want them anymore. Start Windows Explorer, find the folder that contains T÷lvuor­abˇkin (usually C:\Program Files\Ordabok or C:\Ordabok) and delete the files from the folder. Note that the file Auka.dal may contain dictionary entries from the user, but if you are confident that you haven't modified or created new entries in the program, you can delete this file as well.
  4. Delete the file Ordaalda.ini from the Windows folder. This file contains path information, and it's especially important to remove this file if you're going to install the program to a different location in your computer.
  5. If you're going to install the program to a different location, you can now install it and choose a new location.

It should be noted that even if you remove T÷lvuor­abˇkin and then install it again, this does not subtract from the number of times you are allowed to register your licence. Your licences only decrease if the CD-number is registered on a different computer or on the same computer after Windows been removed and reinstalled.
