These instructions assume you have already downloaded
the setup file for NewsBot and have located it through Windows Explorer.
- With the
NewsBot setup located (tpa_nb10.exe), double-click on it to begin the installation.
- You will be welcomed by the setup program
and prompted that no other instances of NewsBot be running. This is
absolutely necessary. If you have another copy of
running, please use ALT+TAB to switch to it and exit it before continuing. Click Next
- Setup will now display the standard
disclaimer. Please read it thoroughly. If you agree, click Next,
if not, click Cancel.
- Select Destination Directory: The default folder location for
the NewsBot program installation is C:\Program
Files\NewsBot. We highly recommend
keeping this setting. However, if you are installing a second copy of
NewsBot onto your computer, you would want to change the location of the
NewsBot folder here. To do so, click Browse and select a new
location. Click Next.
- Backup Replaced Files:
If you would like to backup and files that may be replaced during the
installation, click Yes, otherwise click No. By
default, setup will create a folder in your NewsBot folder called Backup.
The backed-up files will be move here. Click Next.
- You will now be prompted the setup is ready
to install NewsBot onto your computer! Click Next.
- Sit back and wait while setup installs
NewsBot. When it has finished you will be prompted as to whether or not
you would like a desktop icon for NewsBot placed on your desktop. Click Yes
if you would like one, otherwise, click No.
- You will now be prompted that the
installation is complete. Click Finish.
- You will more than likely be prompted to
restart your computer. If prompted to do so, then do *not* skip
this step. It is very important in the case of replaced runtime files. To skip
this step could potentially cause system errors causing you to restart anyway! Click
Once your have restarted your computer,
NewsBot will need to be started. You can do this before or after starting AOL.
NewsBot will *not* automatically start with AOL, however it will
start with Windows if you select this option! :)
To start NewsBot, do the following:
in the taskbar, select All Programs,
select TPA Software
and then click on the NewsBot icon.
