Installation notes... for
any version older then v0.19
After the download, all you
need to do create a directory somewhere on you hard disk, and then unzip
(use win zip if you do not have it
yet) into that directory. Happy cd-editing...
so many different packages?
Currently, the CD editor does not come
with an installation package, i.e., a setup.exe program. Therefore you
should follow the following procedure for installation:
If you have downloaded the
editor before, and managed to get it to start, you do not need to download
Determine whether you need mfc42.dll. In order
for the editor to work, it needs a file a file called mfc42.dll. This is
a dynamic link library of microsoft foundation classes. The file is quite
large, and may take a long time to download. You may be able to save considerable
time in downloading the editor if you you already have the correct version
of mfc42.dll. This may require a bit of work on your side, so you may just

Make sure it is the right version: The
file version must be 6.00.8267.0 or higher.
Note that all digits in the version number are

on your hard disk and it is version 6.00.8267.0
If you have no such file,
you must download mfc42.dll with the editor.
If you have more than one copy, it may not be obvious
which one your computer uses, and for which application. You would be on
the safe side to download it with the editor.
If you downloaded the editor
mfc42.dll, and it did not start, all you need to do is download
