Chapter 1. Quick Start

Install The Magnifier

There are various ways to obtain IMG software, including (but not limited to):

Note: IMG Software is built by product and major version with minor releases. There is only 1 unique build, but can be packaged / delivered / obtained in various ways. When unlicensed, the software acts as a demonstration / evaluation copy, and operation will be limited in length or run-time or capabilities. Once licensed (typically via License Key and Serial Number, or OEM / Company-wide / Enterprise licensing), the software will operate with no limitations.

Recommendation: The quickest and easiest method for obtaining IMG software is to download the current version from IMG's web site. Download, then run the file to install. Test, review, play with, and verify the software meets your needs and requirements. When ready to purchase, go to the IMG License Manager, and click on the "Purchase License Now" button. If working on a machine without internet access, use the Standard or MSI single file download, or use a Product Disc option. Separately, purchase the license for the product directly on the website - once you have your License Key and Serial Number, you can install and license the software.

The following outlines a standard retail Product Disc based install. For other options, refer to notes and details available at the source. In general, the approach is to install the software, then license the software. The Product Disc Installation Assistant provides an easy way to accomplish these two tasks.

Note: You may also Un-Install The Magnifier by running SETUP.EXE After The Magnifier has been properly installed. (The Magnifier Setup will ask you if you wish to Un-Install.) This has been provided as a convenience to the user. It is recommended that you use the Control Panel | Add/Remove Programs Icon to remove The Magnifier.

Start The Magnifier

Click on the Start Button, and open the Start Menu.

Select (All) Programs, then Select The Magnifier. The Magnifier menu will have selections corresponding to the icons in the group. Select The Magnifier to begin operation.

The Magnifier will automatically run after install. You will see a window in the center of your screen with the default settings. You can right-click on The Magnifier to open The Magnifier menu. You may also click on the small icon in the tray (near the clock) for The Magnifier menu. You can use the keyboard shortcut Alt-K to see the list of keyboard shortcuts and get access to The Magnifier help files. Refer to the on-line help, and the User's guide for features and capabilities of The Magnifier.
