Installation and Activation of the Nautical Guide to New Caledonia for Windows

 

 

The installation file is a normal Windows style installer. Just double click on the INSTALL-CRUISING-NEWCALEDONIA.EXE file and follow the wizard. Be sure to read the last window after installation for instructions on activating the guide.

Note: If you have Windows 7 with Windows Essentials Antivirus and if you are installing from a DVD, turn off Windows Essentials before inserting the DVD or the Antivirus will take five or ten minutes to read each file bit by bit and nothing will happen during that time.) Some antivirus programs, like Avast, may offer to run the software in a "sandbox". Refuse this because otherwise the program will be unable to activate. Also Webroot can prevent the guide from running so turn it off before attempting to activate the guide.

The cruising guide must be activated for the computer you intend to use it on while cruising. If you want to activate it on more than one computer or if you are buying a new computer click here for instructions on how to remove the license or get another one.

To activate the cruising guide please go through the following steps:

The first time the cruising guide starts you will be notified that an activation key is required. Click OK and a registration window will appear.

  1. Be sure your computer is connected to the Internet.
  2. Open the email from rocket-guides.com sent to you when you purchased the guides to get the username and password to log into the activation site.
  3. Click on the big blue button in the registration window and log into the activation centre. Then just click on the OK button and the guide will be activated.

Installation and Activation of the Nautical Guide to New Caledonia for Macintosh

INSTALLATION

1. Click on the Apple Icon and select System Preferences / Security & Privacy



2. Click on the Padlock and log in to make changes then select Allow Applications from Anywhere, click OK to save the change and then click on the back arrow to return to the System Preferences page.

3. Click on the App Store icon in the System Preferences window and click OFF the checkmark next to "Automatically check for updates". Otherwise Apple will, without asking you, change your security settings back to the defaults. Also the updates will be taking up your valuable bandwidth downloading without your knowing it whenever you manage to connect to the Internet while cruising. But mostly, Apple's updates can break existing apps - like the cruising guide - and you don't want to do that when you need your guide the most. Turn auto updates back on when you are finished with your cruise.

mac update
4. Double click on the installation file INSTALL-MAC-NEWCALEDONIA-CRUISING.
5. Put your cursor over the anchor and press down on the trackpad, slide your finger to the right while continuing to press down. This will move the anchor over the blue "Applications" folder. When the anchor is over the folder lift your finger off the trackpad. The application will then be copied into the applications folder.
