How To -- Questions and Answers

How do I download CalendarMaker and install on my computer?


To download the current version of CalendarMaker go to the "home page" of our Web site. Somewhere in the right side of this page you will see "Downloads." Click on Downloads.

You then need to click on the desired product. In this case, click on "CalendarMaker for OS X."

In this section, there are three (3) things that you can click on.
    1) ReadMe -- This ReadMe text file contains information that you may need to know, particularly if you are updating from an older version of CalendarMaker 5.
    2) CalendarMaker 5.0.x Demo/Upgrade/Update/New for OS X 10.4.3 thru 10.6.8 - This is what you click on to start the download from our Web site to your computer.
    3) Quick Start Guide - This is the manual that will get you started using CalendarMaker. You can also access this file while CalendarMaker is running by selecting it from CalendarMaker's Help menu.

To install CalendarMaker on your computer, just download it from our Web site by clicking on "CalendarMaker 5.0.x Demo/Upgrade/Update for OS X 10.4.3 thru 10.6.8." After you have done the download you will find "CalendarMaker 5.dmg" on either your Desktop or in your Downloads folder - depending on how you have your browser's preferences set.

The extension "dmg" means a "disk image" file. When you double click the "dmg" file, it will mount a "disk image" on your desktop -- just as if you plugged in another drive into your computer, or as if you inserted a CD. Some browsers, such as Safari, will automatically double click the dmg file for you and mount the virtual drive (disk image) on your Desktop.

Open this "virtual" drive to show you the installation window. You just drag the icon of the CalendarMaker application two inches to the right and drop it on your Applications folder. This puts the application in your Applications folder. The Applications folder that you see in this installation window is an alias to your Applications folder on your hard drive.

If you have an old copy of CalendarMaker 5, which will, of course, be in your Applications folder, the operating system will ask you if you want to replace the old version with the new one. You say "Replace" and you're finished with the installation.

Note: the above step will not work if you are currently running CalendarMaker. You can not replace a copy of a running application. You must quit any running version of CalendarMaker in order to install a new version.

You then close the installation window and unmount (eject) the virtual disk image by dragging it to the Trash.

You then throw away (drag to Trash) the "dmg" file that you downloaded.

That's all there is to it. The installation is complete.

If you have not previously entered a CalendarMaker 5.0 activation key, you will be asked for your activation key the first time you launch this application. If you have not yet purchased an activation key, you can choose to run the application in 30-day demo mode.
