Put the self extracting archive in a directory where you want.


Installation

Call the downloaded self extracting file, you will be asked for the drive/path where you want to install YAZE-AG.
It's recommended to use "C:\yaze-ag-2.30.2". This will create the directory "C:\yaze-ag-2.30.2" and in this directory all files will be extracted.

When you click on "Extract" (in German "Entpacken") there will be created the directory and also an Icon on the Desktop and a group in the Start-Menu.

In the group "YAZE-AG-2.30.2" of the Start-Menu you find the following entries:


How can I test if all is ok?

I put into the binary distribution the md5summ.exe programm (look www.md5summer.org). It tests all files with the "MD5 message digest".

I have generated the file "yaze-ag.md5" which contents the MD5-message-digests of all files which are in the archive which you download/install. When you start md5summer.exe select "verify" and secondly select the MD5-file "yaze-ag.md5".

(Attention: If you have started yaze-ag, then some disk files will be changed. Md5summer tells an error for these files.)



How do I start yaze-ag-2.30.2?

You can start the emulator by three ways:

(There is a little problem: The mintty starts also a second window. This is behind the window with yaze_bin. I have not yet found how I can prevent it.
Don't click on exit on the second window, click on "make it small"!)


How can I change the window options of the mintty terminal emulator?

Make a right click on the top ob the window and select "Options".


How can I use the serial lines /dev/ttyS0 ... /dev/ttyS3 (COM1 ... COM4)?

I put also the stty.exe and the neccesary libraries to the the binary distribution. With stty you can make the settings for the serial lines.

Start a cmd.com and go to "c:\yaze-ag-2.30.2".

With "stty -F /dev/ttyS0 -a" you can print all settings of COM1.
With "stty -F /dev/ttyS0 19200" can you set the speed of COM1 to 19200 Baud.

You can also use /dev/com1 in place of /dev/ttyS0.
