PianoDB2K Readme

The Readme file included in the PianoDB2K, you purchased, was incorrect in that it refers to PianoDB97 instead of PianoDB2K and Windows 97 instead of Windows 95/98/NT/ME/2K/XP. The basic information is correct if you substitute the correct version of PianoDB and Windows.  However, these corrections are published to clarify any questions you may have about the install process.

PianoDB2K Installation:

The PianoDB2K files MUST be installed into a directory called, C:\PianoDB2K

That is the default directory in the Install Program and should not be changed.

Windows 95/98/NT/ME/2K/XP Installation:
