1.1.3 Create or replace the Mif2Go installation
As long as you are using the same version of
FrameMaker and it stays in the same place on your system, you have to
do the following only once; thereafter, installing the latest version
of Mif2Go is just a double-click away.
If you run into problems, follow the instructions in §1.4.1
To create (or replace) the Mif2Go installation program:
1. If you already
have a file in your Mif2Go distribution folder named InstallMif2Go.bat, rename it InstallMif2Go.bak,
just in case.
2. Using a text
editor such as Notepad, copy the following lines exactly
and paste them into a new text file:
REM Install or update Mif2Go
copy /y *.exe %windir%\system32
copy /y d*.dll %windir%\system32
copy /y ugmif2go.chm %windir%\Help
copy /y m*.dll "###\fminit\plugins"
del /q "###\fminit\plugins\.cache"
replace all instances of ### in
the new file with the full path to the folder where FrameMaker is currently
installed on your system; for example:
You can browse to this folder in Windows Explorer,
then simply copy the path from the Explorer Address
line and paste it into the new file, replacing just the characters ###. Do not remove or overwrite the quote
marks. Do not allow lines to wrap.
4. Save the
new file in your Mif2Go distribution folder as "InstallMif2Go.bat", and exit the text editor.
The quote marks are not part of the file name. Their purpose is to prevent
the editor from saving the file as InstallMif2Go.bat.txt,
which is what many editors would do otherwise. See §D.2.2 Check
your Mif2Go installation.
5. Create a
shortcut to InstallMif2Go.bat on your desktop,
if this shortcut is not already present.
6. Exit FrameMaker, if you happen to have it open.
7. Double-click the shortcut to InstallMif2Go.bat.
The copy commands in InstallMif2Go.bat
will copy the necessary files from your Mif2Go distribution folder to the specified
execution folders, which are listed in Table 1-1.
