Windows ME/98/95 are not supported.


*Prior to installation, the user must create a network drive.  The letter for the network

drive must be G.  Please refer to Windows Mapping document to learn more about 

Windows Mapping.  If the letter is not G, after installation, the ODBC System DSNs created

StyleCAD installation must be modified.  Also, all reference to G: drive in Program Configuration
