Moving from CD to Your Computer
To fix the problem we have compiled a new signed applet with Mac and PC installers that move Electronic Beowulf 3.1 from the read-only CD to the owner's hard disk. If the owner has already installed Electronic Beowulf 3.0 on the hard disk, the re-installation will take only a few minutes. Depending on the owner's platform, a new installation will take between 10-30 minutes to copy the 23,000 files from the CD drive to the hard disk. After installation, future updates will take only a few minutes.
The installer essentially performs the following:
- installs Electronic Beowulf from owner's CD to hard disk
- updates all obsolete or disabled Java files
- creates new desktop shortcut to launch Electronic Beowulf 3.1
- Safari or Firefox for Macs; Internet Explorer or Firefox for PCs
