Important File-Ex Installation Note!
After downloading the ZIP file, you should unzip it to a temporary directory and then run the included Setup program to
install it. (If using WinZIP or similar program with an "Install" option, you may use that option to install it. )

Products currently available for download:
File-Ex 3.0 for Windows 95, 98, ME, NT4, 2000, and XP, version 188.8.131.52, under 500K
You should uninstall any previous version of File-Ex (and reboot your computer) before installing an update!
Be sure to use the "Automatic" option when uninstalling so all of your current settings are retained
(including the registration status if you're a registered File-Ex 3.0 customer). If you use the "Custom" option,
this could delete the File-Ex data folder (including your registration information) if you're not careful in your selections.
We recommend including your File-Ex data folder in your regular backups.
If you have File-Ex 1.x or 2.x version installed, you must use the "Remove" program included with that
version to remove it before installing version 3. You should use the "Partial" option, which you will see when you run "Remove",
so that your settings and file/folder history is retained and used by the new version (except for trained dialogs).
None of the settings will be altered by File-Ex 3.0 --
it will import the settings and make its own copy, so you can re-install the old version if necessary.
Windows 95, 98, and ME users: There is one reason you might not want to use File-Ex 3:
File-Ex 3 does not enhance 16-bit applications in Windows 9x, as version 2.x did, so if you still use File-Ex 2.x with some 16-bit
applications then you will have to either upgrade Windows or upgrade your 16-bit applications to use File-Ex 3 with them.
If you train File-Ex for other applications or modify the MS Office training for your language,
please let us know so we can offer it to other users! All you have to do
is E-mail your "fileex.dat" file to us and we'll do the rest.
File-Ex 98, for Windows 95 or Windows 98, version 2.12d
Why would I want version 2?
If you are using Windows 95/98/Me and
want to use long file names in old 16-bit applications, then you must use this version. (Version 3 does support 16-bit apps in NT4/2000/XP.)
