The function of this program is to show the features it is capable of. All user functions are active except SAVE. Save requires a key.
The sole purpose of the key is so that I would know my users. I've been working on this off and on since July 2004. As you might expect there is a lot of code in this program and it still needs work. The amount of effort in maintaining a program for the use of others gets complicated, if it was only for my use I would know the limitations and work around them. So basically I needed feed back, if no one is interested in it and if I have no users then I don't have to use my time to update and maintain the program.
I would like to thank all who sent me question and problems, and especially those who took the time in the difficult task of finding and fixing some of the difficult startup bugs.
I am sorry for any inconvenience, trepidation, or any feelings that anyone is being ill used by the use of keys to activate the save function.
Following the instructions in the Request For Registration Key text box. I am not always available but will send a key at the earliest opportunity. Only email request are accepted as the key is sent as an attachment.

Before you remove the old version save the old ini file somewhere. After you have installed the new version copy the old ini file to C:\Program Files\TerraForm\TerraForm.ini

If you are using something other than XP note the following:
No testing was done on Windows ME/95/98 for version 2. No guarantees that this program will work on anything but a XP machine. (version 1 did work on Windows 98 ver 4.10.1998)
TerraForm uses the Windows Installer (MSI files) to install. In XP and Win 2000 unZIP the downloaded file and double click on the TerraForm.msi file. In ME and 98SE (ver 4.10.2222) it may install the same. In 98 (ver 4.10.1998) and 95 you will have to install the following.
1) Windows Installer 2.0 Redistributable for Windows 95, 98, and Me click here Look down the page and download InstMsiA.exe
2) Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) CORE 1.5 (Windows 95/98)click here
Windows 98SE needs WMI.
