Installing this Software for the First Time

Return to Introduction  Previous page  Next page  

To install the Q++ World Clocks Desktop Wallpaper for the first time, download the latest version of the file q++_world_clocks_wallpaper_setup.exe from the Q++ Studio Freeware page and launch the  installation program you have just downloaded.


The installation program uses the same installation options usually found in most other software installation programs. Just before the final step of the installation, the wallpaper will appear on your desktop, and in the final step of the installation, you will be given the option of launching the configuration program.



If this is the first time that you install the Q++ World Clocks Desktop Wallpaper, then you should leave this option checked (as shown above), so that the configuration program is launched after the installation program closes. Using the configuration program, you will be able to:


Change/specify you current geographical location and time zone. In principle, the times displayed should be correct, as the installation program read your time zone information from the registry during the installation. However, the time zone and summertime settings are often incorrectly set on many computers. Therefore, it is a good idea to verify that the times displayed on your desktop are correct.
Change the number and selection of cities displayed. By default, the number of cities displayed is set during installation, based on your current screen resolution. But even if the number of cities shown suits you, you may still want to change which cities are displayed.


Note that as part of the installation, a program group called Q++ World Clocks Desktop Wallpaper will be created under the Start Menu Programs Q++ Freeware umbrella group used for all Q++ Studio related freeware. This group contains the following links:



These links can be used at a later date to change the configuration settings of your desktop wallpaper, to update this software, or to uninstall it.
