Installing the CD-ROM

The companion CD-ROM contains sample programs developed by the authors, trial versions of many products provided by Oracle, plus an assortment of third-party tools and product demos. The disc is designed to be explored using a browser program. Using Sams' Guide to the CD-ROM browser, you can view information concerning products and companies and install programs with a single click of the mouse. To install the browser, here's what to do.

Windows 3.1 Installation Instructions

  1. Insert the CD-ROM disc into your CD-ROM drive.

  2. From File Manager or Program Manager, choose Run from the File menu.

  3. Type <drive>\setup and press Enter, where <drive> corresponds to the drive letter of your CD-ROM. For example, if your CD-ROM is drive D:, type D:\SETUP and press Enter.

  4. The installation creates a program manager group named Oracle Unleashed. To browse the CD-ROM, double-click the Guide to the CD-ROM icon inside this Program Manager group.

Windows 95 Installation Instructions

  1. Insert the CD-ROM disc into your CD-ROM drive. If the AutoPlay feature of your Windows 95 system is enabled, the setup program will start automatically.

  2. If the setup program does not start automatically, double-click the My Computer icon.

  3. Double-click the icon representing your CD-ROM drive.

  4. Double-click the icon titled Setup.exe to run the installation program. Follow the onscreen instructions that appear. When setup ends, the Guide to the CD-ROM program starts up, and you can begin browsing immediately.

Following installation, you can restart the Guide to the CD-ROM program by pressing the Start button, selecting Programs, and then Oracle Unleashed and Guide to the CD-ROM.

The Guide to the CD-ROM program requires at least 256 colors. For best results, set your monitor to display between 256 and 64,000 colors. A screen resolution of 640 by 480 pixels is also recommended. If necessary, adjust your monitor settings before using the CD-ROM.
