This information is for Version 2.0 of Cardbox for Windows.
We recommend that you upgrade
to Cardbox 3.
downloaded file to floppy disks
The downloaded program that
upgrades your copy of Cardbox to version 2.0 is about 5.5MB
in size, which is far bigger than a standard floppy disk. Sometimes
you may need to use floppy disks to transfer the upgrade software
from one computer to another (for instance, you may have one
computer with a fast Internet connection and another with
Cardbox). Here is how to do it.
To make the disks
- Take four blank, formatted floppy disks. Label them "Cardbox
Disk 1", "Cardbox Disk 2", etc.
- Open Windows Explorer.
- Run the downloaded upgrade program. You can do this
even if you don't have Cardbox installed on the computer
where you did the download.
- When you get the welcome message from the setup program,
do not respond to it, just get back to Explorer. You
can do this by holding down the Alt key and pressing TAB
(normally one TAB will be enough, but just do it until the
screen shows Explorer's name); or you can hold down the
Windows key and press E, which will open a new copy of Explorer.
- In Explorer, look at the folder (directory) that contains
your temporary files. Systems vary, but this is normally
C:\Temporary Files. Inside that
folder you will find a folder with a strange name, normally
~CBX0001.TMP. Open that folder.
It will contain four folders, called
- Copy the directory (folder) DISK1 to Cardbox Disk 1.
- Copy the directory (folder) DISK2 to Cardbox Disk 2.
- Copy the directory (folder) DISK3 to Cardbox Disk 3.
- Copy the directory (folder) DISK4 to Cardbox Disk 4.
- Return to the Cardbox setup program, and cancel the installation
(press Cancel and follow the prompts). This will erase
all those temporary files.
To use the disks
Follow the instructions for installing
the downloaded version.
