In the new, in 2007 we have prepared a nice gift to our users: a new installation Myslene drevo version 2.5 program.
Why the new installation. 1). We noticed that most users of our program have humanitarian education and are not large computer professionals. The process of installation of file md250000.zip can cause certain complications associated with unpacking of archives and following negotiations with the setup program in English. 2). The old installation was designed for transfer to the diskette (4 diskettes of 1.44 MB). Now this media is thing of the past.
What's new in the new installation. 1). Installation in one touch. One will run the file md25inst.exe and in response to one question in Ukrainian – agree on the installation. 2). Installation specially optimized for distribution via Web (as a program file). 3). Reduced size of the new installation in 3 (three) times – up to 1.3 Mb instead of 4.5 Mb (to do this we have removed two large examples and left only three small examples of databases).
Should I download a new installation.
If you already have Myslene drevo version 2.5 program installed on your computer – new download is not necessary, because the new installation only facilitates the installation program, but its functionality remained the same by that.
If you already have installed on your computer Myslene drevo program of previous versions (version number displayed on splach screen when you start) – recommend that you download a new installation, then uninstall the old version and install new.
If you do not have installed on your computer Myslene drevo program – download, install, enjoy.
