Installing PowerCoach on Windows

• Download the current release of PowerCoach for Windows.

• Unzip the downloaded file. You get a folder named "PROGRAM_YYYYMMDD" containing 7 objects. Note: if you have problems to unzip, try StuffIt Expander.

• In "Program Files", create a new folder named "PowerCoach".

• Move the downloaded "PROGRAM_YYYYMMDD" folder into "PowerCoach" folder.

• Within "PowerCoach" folder, create a folder named "DATA".

• To launch the program easily from desktop, create a short cut of PowerCoach.exe located in "PROGRAM_YYYYMMDD".

• Double click the short cut to start the application:

- When the "Open which data file..." dialog gets displayed, click [New...].

- When the "Create a data file..." dialog gets displayed, navigate to your "DATA" folder, enter a file name and click [Save].

Note:  The name extension ".4DD" is mandatory for PowerCoach databases. For example, name your database "PowerCoach.4DD", "John_Power.4DD" or "POWER_COACHING.4DD".

• When the PowerCoach start screen gets displayed, click release version to choose your user language (English, French or German).

• Click anywhere else on the start screen to resume initialization.

• When the LICENSE dialog gets displayed, enter your firstname and name into first field. Optionally, enter the name of your organization into second field.
