To install WinDIG : create a new directory, unzip these files in

this directory, and add an icon in one of your program manager groups.

WinDIG will create a windig.ini file in the same directory, but nothing

elsewhere.

For network users: you may specify another path for the windig.ini

configuration file by specifying the /I option on the command line, i.e.:

WINDIG /I=C:\MYDIR    will use a windig.ini file in C:\MYDIR

To uninstall WinDIG, just remove this directory and the program manager

icon.
