Updating ZET 7 to the latest release

If you already have any version of ZET 7, you can update it. To do this:

  • Check its release date - this is displayed in the "About ZET" window, which is invoked from the toolbar Help button.
  • If your date is earlier then October 2004, then pass to step 1 of the ZET full installation above, and after that install the updates.
  • Download and install only the necessary updates, i.e. all release files either dated later than your version of ZET, or later than your full installation:
    1. Zones3.exe -- Time Zone Tables, release 2 April 2005, 202 198 bytes size.
    2. zet750523.exe -- release 23 May 2005, 1 026 945 bytes size.
  • To install these files:
    1. Open each file in turn,
    2. In the dialog which appears, specify the path to the main ZET folder, for example, "C:\Program Files\ZET 7\",
    3. Click the "Install" button,
    4. If a "Confirm file replace" dialog appears, click the "Yes to All" button.
  • If any problems arise after upgrading:
    1. Delete the main.ini file in the [ZET] folder and run ZET again,
    2. If unsuccessful, e-mail me a report of the problem and attach the main.ini and zetstart.log files,
    3. As a last resort, you can also make a full new installation. (Select a different folder if you have existing data you do not want over-written).

Before you install an update, you may want to read the revision history here.


How to install the language module for ZET 7

If you want to use an interface language different from English, download and install one (or any) of the following current ZET language modules:

Bear in mind that the language module may not be complete, e.g. the User's Manual in the national language may be absent. In these cases, when the F1 key is pressed, ZET will try to show the English version User Manual. When national language interpretation texts are absent, you can use the English texts. Selecting the Library of Interpretation Texts menu option "Import English Books" will result in the English texts being copied to the current national language folder.

To switch ZET from one interface language to another:

  • Click the "Options" button on ZET's Toolbar
  • From the menu, select the first item "General Settings"
  • In the dialog window which appears, select the "Language" tab
  • Select the language you require. e.g., for German click the third radio-button, and choose "Deutsch" from the list
  • The lower panel shows a list of configurations available for this language. Select, for example, "Deutsch"
  • The "OK" button is active - click it, and ZET will automatically reload using the German interface.

If you would like to translate ZET to another language for which a language module is absent, or to improve an existing module, see the User Manual topic "Localizing ZET", and download the Localizer utility and place it in the ZET folder.
