In the following paragraph we assume that you didn't
change the installation folders suggested by the installation.
Due to technical reasons, StrePla3 will also be saved in
the StrePla2 directory. Thus it is not a print error that this directory
is called ...\Programme\StrePla2.
The implementing file is also called StrePla2.exe.
StrePla will place all files that are needed
for the program in the directory c:\Programme\StrePla2
and in the corresponding sub-directories. Additionally, StrePla will create
a directory for your personal files such as turnpoint- and route
catalogues. This personal directory will differentiate between WINDOWS 98, ME
and WINDOWS NT/2000, XP.
program files are located in the folder c:\Program Files\StrePla2.
These are ; strepla2.exe, the licensing
file "your name.dat", the online help file strepla2.chm
and the StrePla2 configuration file strepla2.ini. All personal
settings are stored in this file. If this file
doesn't exist, StrePla2 creates a new version with default values.
The folder drv contains all drivers which are
necessary for converting your data to the specific file formats and for
communication with the logger units.
The folder map contains the map data. Within that
folder the airspace data are stored in map\air, the topographic data
(DCW) in map\dcw and the raster maps in map\bmp.
The folder Templates contains the example
turnpoint and flight track data files. This includes the USA Airfields
(USA_AIRFields.st2) and the world wide turnpoint catalogue of M. Meier
(Welt2000.wgs). The files are write protected so that no unintended
change is possible. If you want to use one of the files, import the data
with the File.Import menu in a new, empty document.
The folder ps_prog contains the
EXE file for pocket*StrePla simulator.
The folder ps_data contains the map
data, polar data, turnpoint, routes and airports
for pocket*StrePla simulator. This folder will also be
used, if you create new data for export to pocket*StrePla.
Personal folder in WINDOWS 98 and ME
The personal folder is the preference folder for all user
made files (turnpoints, routes and flight tracks) for StrePla3. This is
not mandatory, but keep in mind, that you have to remember the storage
folder for your data.
The personal folder is located at c:\Personal
Experience shows that customers often forget where they saved their
files. If you are not too fit in the use of WINDOWS, we strongly
recommend not to change the paths.
Personal folder in WINDOWS NT and 2000
Windows NT creates a personal folder for each different
user connected to the computer. The profile is located in the c:\WINNT\Profiles\_YourLoginName_\Personal
The files are the same as in WINDOWS
98, so please read the note in the previous paragraph.
