Section 1: General Information

System Requirements

  • Windows™ 3.1 or above

  • 8 megabytes RAM for Windows 3.1 or 3.11™; 16 megabytes RAM for Windows 95™ and up

  • VGA Color monitor

  • 1 com port

  • 3-1/2 inch disk drive

  • 15 megabytes of hard drive space

  • printer

Installing the Program

Before installing the program, make sure you have closed all open Windows™ applications. From the Start menu, select Run (for Windows™ 3.1 and 3.11 users, from the File menu of the Program Manager, select Run). Insert Disk 1 of the Zeltex Calibration Software Program into your 3-1/2 inch disk drive. On the Command Line, type a: or b: (as appropriate) setup.exe. Press Return or select OK. The computer will walk you through the setup process, which requires little more than waiting patiently to insert Disk 2.

After installing the program, store the disks in a safe place in case of hard-drive failure or accidental erasure.

Running the Program

Double-click on the ZELTEX icon in the Program Manager. The following screen will appear:

As with other Windows™ applications, you can access the menu bar with the mouse or by pressing Alt and the underlined letter simultaneously. Shortcut keystrokes for some of the options in each menu are listed to the right of the command when the menu appears. The toolbar of shortcut buttons directly below the menu bar provides quick access to some of the most commonly used commands. The right mouse button accesses the Data menu when an optical data file is open.
File names should be no more than 8 characters long and consist only of letters and numbers. The computer automatically assigns the following extensions to the files and stores them in the DATA directory:

  • “.dt1” to optical data files

  • “.st1” to statistics files

  • “.con” to constituent data files

  • “.ks1” to K values files

Any optical data file can be viewed in two ways: Plot View or Grid View. The grid view option is designed mainly for use by Zeltex researchers. The plot view is the most useful as it shows the curves of the sample readings. Whenever multiple samples are graphed in plot view, you can click on any curve or point on the graph to determine the sample’s ID number.
