      Greg,
       
      I took a stab at writing up the install procedure, maybe s few people will test this out and fix anything that isn’t stated clearly  enough

      Installation Instructions for the Carlson Hulls Designer under Windows  Win 7 and Vista

       

      Download the distribution ZIP file and put the contents in a directory.

           Get the download ZIP file at this URL www.carlsondesign.com/hulls.zip

           Move the contents into a directory .

           (I  use a subdirectory called “Hulls” under my “Documents’ directory.)

       

      You can test basic functionality now:

         Using Windows Explorer Go to that directory

         Double-click on the Hulls32 program.

        The program should load

             (You may get a warning from your computer that the program has an unknown author,

               If so, just allow it to run.)

        Test using the default file or one of your choice, do a Save to create a Patterns file.

        Test the Patterns module. It should load properly.

         Test the Offsets Table (Data/Offsets )

           – this most likely will not work if you have a 64-bit version of Windows .

              You will not see an Offsets table.

         Exit the Hulls32 program.

       

      To fix the Offsets table problem under Windows Vista or Win 7:

       

      Open Windows Explorer. Go to the directory where you put all of the Carlson Hulls Designer files.

      You will want the Details-List display so fix that if you need to.

      Click on the Column Heading for “Type”

      You will find 3 Active X control files (OCX files)

          DBGRID32.OCX

          MSCOMCTL.OCX

          Msflxgrd.ocx

      Select those three files, then right click and click on “Copy.”

      If using Vista, go to the directory named C:Windows\System32

      If using Win 7, go to the directory named C:Windows\SysWOW64

      Right-click and then click on “Paste”

          If Explorer tells you that a file but that name already exists, you should skip copying that file.

          Remember which one(s) did not need to be copied.

          You probably do not need to copy MSCOMCTL.OCX

       

      Now you will need to register the OCX files that you copied.

      Click on the “Start” button. Click on “All Programs”.  Click on Accessories.

      Right-click on “Command Prompt” and click on “Run as Administrator.”

      This will open a command prompt window.

      If Vista, enter the command “CD C:\Windows\System32”

      If Win 7, enter the command “CD C:\Windows\SysWOW64”

      Then for the files you had to copy enter the command to register the program:

         REGSVR32 DBGRID32.OCX                     {don’t do this if the file was not copied.}

             You should see a confirmation message that the program was successfully processed.

         REGSVR32 Msflxgrd.ocx                     {don’t do this if the file was not copied.}

             You should see a confirmation message that the program was successfully processed.

         REGSVR32 MSCOMCTL.OCX                      {don’t do this if the file was not copied.}

             You should see a confirmation message that the program was successfully processed.

       

       

      You can close the Command Prompt Window now.

       

      At this point, the Offsets table should work fine. Try it.
