Many third-party programs are not specifically designed for use in public access environments and allow malicious or inexperienced users to disrupt computer use. WINSelect brings these programs under your control, by allowing system administrators in these environments to selectively control third-party program and Windows operating system features, such as: • • • •• • menus hot keys desktop and Tooltray icons right mouse menus location of opening and saving CTRL-ALT-DEL (Windows 9x systems only)
WINSelect is modular and targeted programs, such as Internet Browsers, are controlled by the KIOSK module. Overall system security and specific functionality (such as where users may save and open files) is controlled by POLICY (This is not Windows Policy).Depending on your needs, you may wish to use both components, or just one.

Upgrading, Installation, andRemoval
Note: All Upgrades require a system reboot. Windows NT If you have a licensed version of WINSelect version 4.0 or 4.01 for NT, the upgrade will install a licensed version of WINSelect 5.0 with only the KIOSK module. In order for the upgrade to proceed properly, the upgrade setup must be run while the previous license version is installed, since this step prepares the computer for theinstallation of the upgrade. A message will then give instructions to remove the previous version. After the previous version has been removed and the computer rebooted, run the upgrade setup again and follow instructions. Windows '95/98 Depending on which version of WINSelect is currently installed on the computer to be upgraded, (KIOSK or Policy or both), it will be upgraded to a licensed versionof WINSelect 5.0 with the licensed modules. In order for the upgrade installation to proceed properly, the upgrade setup must be run while the previous license version is installed, since this step prepares the computer for the installation of the upgrade.. A message will then give instructions to remove the previous version. After the previous version has been removed and the computer rebooted,run the upgrade setup again and follow instructions. If the upgrade is being installed on a version of WINSelect v5.0 or later, removal of the previous version, before upgrading, is not required. If removal of a previous version is required, the previous configuration settings will be retained.
Note: Since portions of WINSelect act as a part of the Windows operating systemand become "locked in use" by the system, you must reboot your system after removing WINSelect in order to completely remove this software. Reinstalling this software after removing a previous version requires a reboot before reinstallation -- until you reboot after removing WINSelect, the WINSelect software will not reinstall properly. DO NOT REMOVE WINSelect MANUALLY.
