How to start to run
the SHARPE tool or the SHARPE interface?




SHARPE Interface:

  • From a CD:

    The CD contains the directory:
    • Sharpe-Gui

      This directory contains the code for the interface of SHARPE
      Copy this directory to your C: drive, then through explorer,
      open the directory C:/Sharpe-Gui and click on the icon "Interface SHARPE".
      After you have copied on C:/, you can find a manual about the gui in the directory C:/Sharpe-Gui/Document
      The CD puts certain files with the Read-Only permissions, change to regular permissions.
      Name of the files to be modified:
      - C:\Sharpe-Gui\init-gui.txt
      - C:\Sharpe-Gui\code.txt

  • From the file Sharpe-Gui.zip

    • Sharpe-gui.zip

      Unzip the "Sharpe-Gui.zip" file in the directory C: .
      open the directory C:/Sharpe-Gui and click on the icon "Interface SHARPE".
      You can find a manual about the gui in the directory C:/Sharpe-Gui/Document

  • From a Zip drive:

    The Zip drive contains the file:
    • Sharpe-Gui/Sharpe-gui.zip

      Create the directory C:/Sharpe-Gui, then through explorer, then unzip the "Sharpe-Gui.zip" file in this directory.
      open the directory C:/Sharpe-Gui and click on the icon "Interface SHARPE".
      You can find a manual about the gui in the directory C:/Sharpe-Gui/Document

  • Remarks:

      - If you have in your MS-DOS prompt, the message "Out of the memory for the initial environment", follow these instructions:

        * For Windows95 & Windows98:
        At the top of this MS-DOS prompt, you have some icons. Click on the "Properties" icon. Then another window appear (Click on "Memory" in the tabset at the top of this window). You need to change the value of the memory allowed for the initial environment (top right). The value should be at this time "Auto", put it to 2048. Then click on the button "Apply" (bottom right in the window), then "Ok".

        Close the MS-DOS prompt and click again and the "Interface SHARPE" icon.

      - you should respect the spelling of the name of the directory (upper case). If you create a directory SHARPE-GUI instead of Sharpe-Gui in your C: drive, you may encounter some troubles to run the graphic.

      - The Sharpe-Gui application continues to be modified by the programmers, to increase the features of the interface but also to fix problems met by the users. Instead of sending the all package, we are sending to the customer a zip file "Regal.zip". The user should delete the files in the directory C:/Sharpe-Gui/regal on his computer then unzip the file "Regal.zip" in this directory.
