Netscape Browser Users :
If you are using Netscape Browser/Communicator, operation will stay the same - there will only be internal changes.
Microsoft Explorer Users*:
Upon doing an AUTO-SUBMIT, this program will open and close BROWSER windows - this is normal. It is advisable NOT to operate other programs during this type of submissions only - also DO NOT close these windows yourself - they will open and close automatically.
AOL, GOTOWORLD, ALLADVANTAGE browsers and all others:
Because of the changes brought about in this patch, you will not be able to START the software directly in these browsers. This also applies to any users using a "custom version" of a browser for connection to their Internet Service Provider [to "connect" to the net] or users using a GOTOWORLD/ALLADVANTAGE or similiar "custom browser".
Changes made to the submitter, will only allow the program to operate in a "normal" Netscape/Communicator browser (version 4.0 or higher, 4.6 or 4.7 recommended) or Internet Explorer brower (version 5 recommended) ONLY. "Normal" means you downloaded the browser from www.netscape.com or www.microsoft.com respectively OR installed from a CD.
Here is how to use the Power Submitter in these situations:
[AOL browser used as an example, all users are the same]:
1. Start up your AOL program and connect [if you need to make a connection to the internet this way].
2. Minimize the window [DO NOT CLOSE IT!].
3. Start up either Netscape browser or Internet Explorer browser OR click on Power Submitter start ICON on your desktop, if this causes NETSCAPE or INTERNET EXPLORER to start up**, with the Power Submitter, then proceed to submissions, otherwise proceed with steps 4, 5 and 6.
4. On the BROWSER WINDOW [In Netscape/Communicator or Internet Explorer*] at the TOP of the SCREEN Click on FILE, OPEN FILE.
5. Browse for the file called index or index.htm in the folder where you installed the Power Submitter. Most users will have this as: PROGRAM FILES, BELTON ENTERPRISES, POWER SUBMITTER.
6. Open this file. [Then BOOKMARK / ADD to FAVORITES it, for use later.]
7. To restart later, repeat steps above. If you BOOKMARKed / ADDed to FAVORITES the file in STEP 6 [index or index.htm] , simple click on the "Bookmark" to start the submitter.
* Internet Explorer: If you start this browser / activate the Power Submitter in this browser, WITHOUT being connected to the net, YOU MAY have to SELECT "WORK ONLINE" when you want to submit. This is located under FILE in the browser.
Also, YOU MAY have to change your "connections" settings in your Internet Explorer browser if you get an error about "not connected to the net" - Click on TOOLS and OPTIONS to access and change this.
** You can reset your file system, to start up the Power Submitter in Internet Explorer by downloading and re-installing this browser.
