1. Does not automatically format hard drive when installing. I found this out when I installed a drive that had been used as a backup and the files were still there after installation of the new operating system.
  2. Registering DLL's. You must Run the command prompt as Administrator. Select All Programs->Accessories, right-click "Command Prompt" and select "Run as Administrator" from the menu. Here I am assuming that the Users will be using the "y" drive to access the Plus&Minus
    1. The Administrator account will not use your currently configured User drives. You will have to "NET USE y: \\myServer\SharedDirectory" to connect needed network drive(s) as Administrator. The "/persistent:yes" switch may be added if you always want the Administrator to have that drive available (normally not necessary). This NET USE must provide the exact same path that the everyday user(s) will use. This path will be stored in the registry.
    2. At the Command prompt type y: <ENTER>
      • This takes you to the "y" drive
    3. Change to the folder that contains the Plus&Minus pam.exe file if you are not already there
    4. Type PamComRegis <ENTER>.
      • You should see about 10 to 12 items being registered. If you now check the Registry you should see the items as registered. If, for example, you search for PamClassDoc you should be able to locate it several times in the Registry.
    5. Add the path to the Plus&Minus directory to your PATH System Variable
  3. When accessing Windows 7 Professional as a file server with a Windows XP machine you have to turn on "Enable file sharing for devices that use 40- or 56-bit encryption" instead of 128-bit encryption.
    • Control Panel->Network and Sharing Center->Advanced sharing settings
      • Section: In Section File sharing settings, Select: Enable file sharing for devices that use 40- or 56-bit encryption
