RE: upgrading AVTS software


All 100 units for El Paso County , Colorado was shipped with Windows 98 CD
ROM.  Al necessary drivers for hardware, i.e.., Monitor ,Touch, And
Ethernet), are placed in a folder on the C: drive.

But, what it sounds like is that if you remove 1.1.3 from units but not the
shared files. Then install MDAC, followed by installing latest AVTSIS, that
should do it for at least the ones out in EL Paso County. Do you agree?

The reason we needed to install 1.1.3 was because that was the only version
we had a Famous name election to test hardware with.

If we can get 3.X Install with a famous name or any test election for me to
include on the master Hard Drive then that is what we will use. Again it may
be a good idea for you to test the install before we commit it to hard disk
master for production.

PS. The keyboard sequence to by-pass license setup is "Ctrl, Shift, F3", all
at the same time. Then agree to license, then it will boot up normal with
two windows . One a text file that you can close after reading, another as a
shutdown audit screen.  Leave this one open and do what you need to do on
the system. if you need to reboot to check out your changes or setup, select
(on the Audit window) an audit reboot. You will probably not have to enter
the keyboard sequence again. Then when you are completely done select the
shutdown option on the Audit window. After this, the next time you power up
the system, it will ask you to put in the license number. If you make a
mistake just enter keyboard sequence again to go back into audit.
