1. Insert your Climate Atlas CD into your computer's CD-ROM drive. 2. Use the Windows Explorer (or another file management tool) to navigate to the root directory of your computer's CD-ROM drive. Double-click on the file titled "CA_Install.exe" and follow its instructions. 3. Restart your computer. To start your Atlas after it is installed, double-click on the Atlas icon on your computer's desktop. **************************************************************************************************** (Installation Error) -------------------- Continue here only if you were instructed to refer to this section because of an installation error. 1. Navigate to the "c:\windows" directory of your computer's "C" drive. 2. Locate the file named either "command.com" or "command". 3. Right-click on it, or if both are there, choose either one. Then click on the "Properties" item. 4. Click on the "Program" tab. 5. Click on the "Advanced" button. 6. Click on the box, "MS-DOS mode", to remove its check mark. 7. Click in the second box, "Suggest MS-DOS mode as necessary", to place a check mark there. 8. Click on the "OK" button on that window, which will close it. 9. Click on the "OK" button on the next window, which will close it. 10. Begin again with the Installation Instructions above. If you still encounter errors, you may contact the NCDC by email at "info@ncdc.noaa.gov" or by telephone at (828) 271-4702. You may run the Atlas from the CD without "installing" it, although installation instructions are above. To run the Atlas without installing it: a) Double-click on the file "aeclient.exe" in the root directory of the CD-ROM. Follow its instructions. b) Double-click on the file "jre122_5.exe" in the root directory of the CD-ROM. Follow its instructions. c) Make a directory "ClimateAtlas_00" off the root directory of your computer's C-drive. d) Then, each time you want to run the Atlas, you must double click on the file "NCDCClimateAtlas.jar" in the root directory of the CD-ROM. e) And the first time you run the Atlas, you'll have to specify where the Atlas data is located. Click on the 'ClimateAtlas' menu tab in the Atlas interface. Under that you will see "Data Location". Click on the "Data Location" menu item. In the dialog box that appears, enter the drive letter of your CD-ROM drive and a colon without a slash, like: "D:" (if your CD-ROM's drive letter is "D"). Do not add a slash at the end. Click the "Apply' button and the 'Close' button. Then you should be able to access the maps.
