(* Culpeper participants would have a copy of it on yours CD)
(* for the others, there is a 30-day trial version on the CD if you don't have version 4/5/6)

Insert the class CD into your Thinkpad
Double click My computer
Double click D:
Double click the folder UVS6_E

The manual is in Adobe Acrobat PDF format on the CD also.

(* Culpeper participants - Your SN is in a text file called vs6sn-culpeper.txt on the CD)

* Choose Both NTSC and PAL standards if you will be dealing with videos from Europe/Hong Kong etc.

* uncheck all the options, not all the options are on the class CD. (they don't fit. Ask your instructor after workshop if you need them)

2.4 Class material

If you have enough disk space, it is best if you copy all the 4 files in the video folder onto your hard drive.

The materials have not been tested to run directly off CD-ROM.
