Installing software to your hard disk

What is the nature of the issue?

Can I run my GMI software product from the hard disk so that I don't have to have my CD-ROM in the drive to use the product?

Is there a fix available?

Yes, in general.

Note, though, that your license is still for a single machine; if you wish to run the software on multiple machines, contact GMI for a multi-user license. A few older products (African Proverbs, Operation World Plus, 20:21 Library) require extensive editing of configuration files in order to run from the hard disk. Most newer products (and many CD-ROM products from other manufacturers) can be run from the hard disk by clicking on the tab below and following the general procedure:
