DOWNLOADING SmartBiz FOR YOURSELF

This option will install a full, working version of SmartBiz on your system.

To install SmartBiz , first print out this page. (Note: With some versions of browser this page may not print correctly. In that case, just click anywhere on this page then select "File", "Print Frame")

Then click on "Download the System" at the bottom of the page.

Select "OK" to accept the default name of "SMARTZIP.EXE" in the "File Name" box.

This will copy the self-extracting program smartzip.exe file to your computer, which is a zipped file including all the programs needed for your system. The programs in this file need to be unzipped as follows:

(1) For Windows users:
From your program manager, select "File" then "Run" (Windows 31. users), or "Start", "Run" (Windows 95 and later users). Change to the folder that your browser downloaded SMARTZIP.EXE to, then click on SMARTZIP.EXE.

This will unzip the file SMARTZIP.EXE into 3 files, SMARTBIZ.EXE (a zip file of all the programs), DEMDATA.EXE (a zip file of the data, which needs to be unzipped into the data directories), and INSTALL.BAT (an installation batch file that will create the necesary directories and unzip the files in the appropriate place)

(2) For MS-DOS users:
From MS-DOS change to the directory the file has been downloaded into, and then type SMARTZIP

As for Windows users, this will unzip the file SMARTZIP.EXE into 3 files, SMARTBIZ.ZIP (a zip file of all the programs), DEMDATA.ZIP (a zip file of the data, which needs to be unzipped into the data directories), and INSTALL.BAT (an installation batch file that will create the necesary directories and unzip the files in the appropriate place)

(3) For both MS-DOS and Windows users:
For all users, there is now a small amount of work to finish the installation:

Windows users first need to select the MS-DOS prompt from the Program Manager (Windows 3.1), or "Start", "Programs", "MS-DOS" for Windows 95 and 98, maybe "Start", "Run", "Programs", Accessories", "MS-DOS" for later versions (depending on the version).

If you cannot find your MS-DOS prompt on your Windows version, then simply go "Start", "Run" and type in COMMAND.COM

Then type: CD \##### [Enter], where ##### is the name of the folder or directory that your browser has placed the file SMARTZIP.EXE into.

Type INSTALL [Enter]

That will load the SmartBiz system onto your computer ready for operation.

Finally, to operate the SmartBiz system, like any similar power-packed systems, you need a manual.

Once you have ordered the manual for $55+GST from Sprint Supplies Ltd (and started the support contract if getting the full version), then the system you have downloaded can be unlocked for your use. If you wish you may order the manual now from Sprint Supplies Ltd by emailing them
