Installing PageStream

Just started this new section, so don't get too worried about the content. The readme files still contain the information you need, but that information will be condensed to here as time permits.

SectionWindows
To install PageStream for Windows, copy the contents of the archive into a folder of your choice and run the PageStream executable. It is recommended that this installation not be installed over an existing copy of PageStream because this release is not compatible with older releases.

To run PageStream for Windows, simply double click on the PageStream5.exe file inside the installed folder. Drag the PageStream5.exe to your desktop or start menu to create an easy access shortcut to the program.

To use external scripts, you must install Python for Windows. You can download and install this from http://www.python.org/download/. For the time being it is recommended you download and install a 2.x version, and not a 3.x version, of Python.

Windows per user preferences are stored under Windows Vista and 7 in C:\Users\{username}\AppData\Roaming\PageStream5\, and under XP in C:\Documents and Settings\{username}\Application Data\PageStream5\.
Where {username} is the name you logged into Windows under.

The main preferences file is called PageStream5.ini.

SectionOS X
Macintosh per user preferences are stored in /Users/{username}/Library/Application Support/PageStream5/ where {username} is the name you logged into OS X under.

The main preferences file is called PageStream5.prefs.

SectionLinux
Linux per user preferences are stored in /usr/{username}/.PageStream5/ where {username} is the name you logged into Linux under.

The main preferences file is called PageStream5.prefs.

If there seems to be something wrong with PageStream (not responding, doesn't allow to open a document let alone opening a new document, etc), the best thing to do is delete PageStream5.ini or PageStream5.prefs (or rename it), depending on your OS (Operating System).
Like this (Windows 7 or Vista):

Before running PGS again, you should delete PageStream5.ini.
If you not sure about this, you could copy PageStream5.ini on another, save, place.
But then delete PageStream5.ini at C:\Users\{username}\AppData\Roaming\PageStream5\

Now run PGS again. You don't have to install PGS as new , just running it will cause (now) a new PageStream5.ini.
Of course you have to fill in the name, registration and activation key.

Afterwards, when PageStream is behaving again, you could copy parts of the old PageStream5.ini (or .prefs).
PageStream5.ini / PageStream5.prefs is just a text file!

The path in linux is actually /home/{username}/.PageStream5, not sure where /usr came from, it has never been that.
