How to Install Pay Maker 4.5

Make sure that no other applications are running.

Insert the PayMaker installation disk into your CD-ROM drive. The Pay Maker installation should automatically run.

If the installation does not automatically start then use Windows Explorer to open the CD. Double click AutoPlay or index.htm to start installation.

Follow the onscreen instructions.

When installation is complete, you will see a message telling you that you have installed Pay Maker successfully.

A desktop icon will be created for PayMaker. This may be used to easily launch PayMaker.

Before you start using PayMaker 4.5, upgrade your data file.

Upgrading Data Files

Install PayMaker 4.5 first before carrying out the following steps.

Create a back up of the new PayMaker 4.5 data file.

Go to the main screen of PayMaker 4.5. The name and location of the data file will be in the bottom right hand corner of the Main Menu.

Go to the folder where the new data file is located. (usually "C:\Program Files\PayMaker 4_5").
Copy the data file. Paste this file in the same folder and rename it. 

Upgrade data file

Before you start the Upgrade process, you must know where your old data file is. If you are not sure, start the old version of PayMaker. The name and location of the data file will be in the bottom right hand corner of the Main Menu.

Go to "C:\Program Files\PayMaker 4_5" folder

Open the data file by double-clicking on it.

Press the 'CTRL' key and 'U' on the keyboard together.

A confirmation screen will ask if you want to upgrade your PayMaker data file. Click Yes to upgrade.

Use the next screen that opens to find the data file that you used with the old version of PayMaker.

The application will automatically carry out the upgrade for you. When the upgrade is completed, close the data file. This data file now contains your upgraded data.
Start PayMaker by clicking on the desktop shortcut for PayMaker. The data file will be automatically loaded.
