Pattern Master Boutique Installation


These instructions will help you load the full version of PMB on your PC (not a Mac). I don't know how the Click & Sew software loads, but it's probably similar. Before you start, print this page, then close your browser and any other programs that you have running. Some of these steps take some time, so now you have been forewarned!

If you are loading your software for the first time, skip the rest of this paragraph. If you are installing an update, download the file now into the directory C:\ProgramFiles, write down the file name, then continue.

If you have a problem with this, please let me know.

This step takes time:
If you have anti-virus software and you run it at least once a week, skip this step. Otherwise, run it now against your (C:) drive. If you also have a (D:) drive that is not a CD drive, run against that, also.

To prepare to install your PMB software, you should clean up your hard drive. First, select Start > Programs > Windows Explorer. If the (C:) drive has a plus sign in the square to its left, click the plus sign once to expand it. Then expand Windows and click on Temporary Internet Files. Click once on one of the names in the column called Names. Do a <Ctrl><A> which means to hold down the "Ctrl" key, hit the "A" key once, then release both keys. If you are asked if you want to delete cookies, hit the "N" key or click the "No" box once. Now close this window.

If you like to keep files in the Recycle Bin, this is the time to save them. Right-click the Recycle Bin and select Open. Right-click each file you want to keep and select Restore. Leave alone the items that you don't mind losing.
