If it doesn't suit your purposes, there's only one folder to throw away to completely eliminate it from your computer: PriceUpdater Corral.Appreciate your interest,Alex StandeferMacMerlin Computer ServicesSMWhat's Installed on Your ComputerPriceUpdater is fully functional without additional software, aside from your computer's operating system. You don't have to own a copy of FileMaker Pro or buy any additional software to use PriceUpdater. It is provided here in "runtime" form. The developer edition of FileMaker Pro allows applications developers to bind just enough of the full FileMaker program to make a custom application stand alone. I have built PriceUpdater as a stand-alone program for both Windows and Macintosh computers.The installation provides all of its files in a single folder called PriceUpdater Corral and does not litter your computer with other files in places unseen. However, quite a few files appear in the installed PriceUpdater Program Files folder. Almost all of these files are FileMaker components that enable the program to operate. The only file Windows users need to remember is PriceUpdater.exe. The only file Macintosh users need to remember is PriceUpdater.For Windows users, double-clicking PriceUpdater.exe, inside the PriceUpdater Program Files folder, starts the PriceUpdater pricing program. Once installed, a shortcut to the PriceUpdater.exe file can be placed conveniently on the desktop: On the keyboard hold down the Ctrl and Shift keys simultaneously, and without releasing the keys drag PriceUpdater.exe onto the desktop and drop it. (This creates a shortcut while leaving the original in place.)For Macintosh users, double-clicking PriceUpdater, inside the PriceUpdater Program Files folder, starts the PriceUpdater pricing program. Once installed, an alias to the PriceUpdater program file can be placed conveniently on the desktop or under the Apple menu: On the keyboard, hold down the Apple key and Option key at the same time, and without releasing the keys drag the PriceUpdater program file onto the desktop and drop it. (This creates an alias while leaving the original in place.)Trivia 1. The most powerful spreadsheet program on the market was first engineered for Macintosh, not Windows. Can you name it? [Right you are, if you said Microsoft Excel.] 2. The first-ever automated Excel pricing system for Carpet One's web-based pricing files was engineered by . . . ? [Right you are, if you said MacMerlin Computer Services(SM) and Lowell Pearlman, Pearlman's Carpet One, Asheville, NC.] 3. The most user-friendly database on the market was originally written for Macintosh and now is available as well for Windows. Can you name it? [Right you are, if you said FileMaker Pro.]. .
