To execute the downloaded file and install InfoHandler you need the Microsoft Windows Installer (version 1,5 or later). Since your operating system is Windows XP or Windows 2000 this installation service is probably already included and you just need to launch (double-click on) the downloaded file. In rare cases this installer might not yet be available and the installation of InfoHandler would fail. If this happens please download the Installer from the Microsoft website:

After downloading start this file with Administrator mode to install the Windows Installer on your computer. After that install InfoHandler.

You can install version 9 of InfoHandler side by side with version 8, but you cannot open InfoBases created or once opened with version 9 anymore using version 8. So be sure to make copies of your existing InfoBases before open them with InfoHandler 9 . MDE InfoHandler 9 uses most of the global settings including active alarms with the earlier version.

Known possible problems on installing or running InfoHandler

In rare cases it happens that InfoHandler exits with an error message immediately after launching. The cause are some corrupted data at the System Registry. If this happens just start the program another time - this will fix the problem. InfoHandler needs an up-to-date version of the system library file comctl32.dll. If on launching the program you get any message containing this name your version of this file might not be current enough. If this is the case try to acquire a library update for your operating system.

We need your help.

MDE InfoHandler is continuously being developed further. Thereby the program gains new interesting functionality, some of these being significant extensions, other minor or major improvements of existing features.

But InfoHandler is also a rather complex program. Therefore, every change also involves a certain risk of problematic interactions at places where we did not expect them and that our meticulous testing before publication did not discover. In these (rare) cases we urgently need your help. You could help us by informing us immediately if anything does not seem to work correctly after installing or running the application. We will process this information with highest priority and post updated versions promptly for download.

But we need your help also for the future shaping of InfoHandler. Tell us what you do not like about InfoHandler , what you would like to be changed, what features you would like to see in new versions.

We promise to personally answer to all of your comments and suggestions.
