TECHNICAL SUPPORT for the CD-ROM


Installation Options


The setup routine permits several choices regarding how much of the software will be installed on your hard disk. How much you choose to install will depend on how much disk space you have available and what level of performance you want.

Typical versus Compact Installation. You will be asked to make this choice during the initial installation. Typical installation may require as much as 25 MB of hard disk space on some systems. It is not required or necessary that you choose the typical installation, but this option does provide the best performance by moving the most frequently used files to the hard disk. The compact option saves 6.5 MB of space at installation by waiting to copy files to the hard disk only when they are needed. For most users, we suggest the typical installation. See the README.TXT file on the CD-ROM for more information. A web version of the README.TXT file is also available.

Once all the necessary files have been copied to your hard disk, you will be prompted to launch the program. The first time you do this, you will be asked to make several other choices regarding installation options.

Professional versus Instructional Version Option. The authors of the CD-ROM recognize that, although all the information recovered in an archaeological excavation has scientific importance, it may be inappropriate to display or view some of that information, such as photographs of human bones, in a public or instructional context. Therefore, we have provided two installation options. The Professional version provides access to all of the information contained on the CD-ROM about the site; the Instructional version provides access to all of the information except for photographs of human burials. Archaeologists using this CD-ROM as a scholarly reference may wish to load the Professional version; teachers using it in a classroom should load the Instructional version.

Color Mode Option. In Windows, it is possible to employ a variety of graphic modes. These modes describe how many pixels are displayed on your screen (screen resolution) and how many colors your screen can display at one time (color depth). This software was written for a screen resolution of at least 640 x 480 pixels and a color depth of at least 256 colors. We have included a second set of full-color photographs that exploit the superior display properties provided by video modes with a color depth of more than 256 colors (e.g., 65,000 or 16.7 million colors).

If you are running Windows at a color depth of less than 256 colors, the installation program will notify you. You must then change your color depth before you can run the software. For more information, see the section labeled "Changing Windows Graphics Modes" in the README.TXT file on the CD-ROM.

If you are running at a color depth of 256 colors, you have two options at installation: (1) you can set the software to assume that you will always be running at 256 colors; or (2) you can set the software to check every time you start it to see if you are running with more colors and, if so, to give you the option of using them.

If you are running at a color depth of greater than 256 colors, you have three options: (1) you can have the software assume that you will always be running in this high-color mode; (2) you can have the software always use just 256 colors (the quality of the photographs will not be as high, but the photographs will load and display faster); or (3) you can have the software give you a choice every time you run it.

Screen Resolution Option. This software was written to support a graphics mode of 640 x 480 pixels. This is the lowest resolution in standard Windows operations and the most common mode for the majority of users. The report is not designed to display in larger dimensions. If you run Windows in a higher resolution mode (e.g., 800 x 600 pixels or 1028 x 768 pixels), the report will appear smaller on your screen.

If you are running at these higher resolutions, the software will notify you. Your only option is to change Windows to a different graphics resolution. For more information, see the section labeled "Changing Windows Graphics Modes" in the README.TXT file on the CD-ROM or see below.

Font Size Option. If you are running Windows 3.1, your video mode can be set to display small or large fonts. This software has been designed to run under the small fonts option, which is the case for software running on the overwhelming majority of computers using Windows. If you are running in a large fonts mode the setup program will warn you. You must change the video mode to small fonts in order to use this application. For more information, see the section labeled "Changing Windows Graphics Modes" in the README.TXT file on the CD-ROM or see below.
