    How to remove all files, shortcuts and registry entries from your system.

  1. Once you have obtained a copy of Icon Library you should check that it is the correct version by looking at its name and filesize. The name of the file is icolib05.exe (2884KB) for the unregistered version and icolib05_reg.exe (5833KB) for the full registered version.

  2. Place the downloaded Icon Library file into a temporary folder such as C:\temp.

  3. Double click the file to start the installation procedure. You should see this window appear. This example assumes that you are installing the shareware version of Icon Library. The full registered version is installed in a similar manner.

    WinZip Self-Extractor

  4. You can change the default location of where the program will be installed by typing a new pathname in the Unzip to folder window or by selecting a folder using the Browse... button.

  5. Extract all the Icon Library files by clicking on the Unzip button. A progress bar will appear showing all the files being extracted. When the process is complete, a confirmation window will appear showing the number of files that have been extracted. There are currently 169 files in the shareware version and 410 files in the full registered version of Icon Library, although there may be slight variations in future.

    WinZip Confirmation

  6. Click on the OK button to close this window and then click on the Close button in the previous window. You should now have a folder called icolib5_shar on your C: drive with contents similar to what is shown below. I have shown the detailed Windows Explorer view. Some files, such as icolib.in2, only appear in the shareware version of Icon Library.

  7. The basic installation is now complete. You can start using Icon Library by double-clicking on the file with the icon that looks like the letter i with the red dot. The program is called Icolib5_shar.exe or Icolib5_shar if you have not enabled file extensions. There is a User Guide available for the Icon Viewer program.

  8. You may also like to continue the installation by creating some Shortcuts for your desktop.
