This technical note explains how to create
and use a batch file for the purpose of switching easily between two
versions of LabelVision. As an example we will use LabelVision 20/20
Version 4.0 and LabelVision 2000 Version 3.2.
If you wish to run LabelVision Version 4.0 and Version 3.2 interchangeably
on the same PC, install them in two different folders.
- Right-click on this link,
and save the file to the LabelVision 3.2 installation folder.
- In the same directory, right-click again and select New | Text
Document. Rename this file to 'register.bat'; This file should
contain the following three lines:
- Right-click on this file (register.bat), then select "Create
Shortcut". A new shortcut will be created for you.
- If you are using Windows 95 or Windows 98, right-click the new
shortcut and select "Properties". On the Program Tab check the
"Close on Exit" option. Then, Click the OK button.
Create a batch file and a shortcut for Version 4.0 in its installation
folder in a similar manner, by following steps 1 through 4 above.
To run either Version, do the following: if LabelVision is running,
terminate it and then wait at least 5 seconds before continuing;
then double-click the appropriate shortcut.
