FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS_____________________________________________
Q: How do I get the Windows 95/98 taskbar off the screen in 640x480 mode?
A: In the Windows Start Menu, select Settings/Taskbar, then click the Options tab, then checkmark 'Always on top' and 'Auto hide' and click OK. To get to the taskbar after this, move the mouse pointer to the edge of the screen where the taskbar used to be and it will pop up.
Q: The graphics on my screen look odd. Why are there weird coloured patches
here and there in the window?
A: If your Windows system colours are set to 256 you may experience this. Change your settings to display 16 bit colour or more. (Go to Control Panel, open Display click on the Settings tab, and set colours to 16 bit or more.)
Q: Can I make the RulesMaster panel appear larger on my screen?
A: The RulesMaster display area is 640X480 pixels, so if your screen's Display Area is set too high, you may find the display too small. Open your Windows Control Panel and select 'Display'. Click the Settings tab, and adjust the Display Area to a suitable level. Usually 800X600 works best.
Q: How do I use other programs while playing RulesMaster Pro or FlashCards?
A: RulesMaster products are designed to occupy the entire screen so as to take best advantage of your monitor's capability and ensure that you can see all of RulesMaster's multimedia elements. However, if you need to open up another program quickly, the following Windows key commands may help:
Alt-F4 terminates the active program immediately.
Thw Windows key on your keyboard, or Ctrl-Esc switches the focus to the Windows Start Menu, or to other active programs.
Q: I am using RulesMaster Pro as part of a course. How do I forward quiz responses
to my instructor?
A: RulesMaster FlashCards doesn't keep permanent records of your score. RulesMaster Pro will have this feature.
Q: How can I uninstall RulesMaster FlashCards?
A: You can simply Go to Control Panel, select "Add/Remove Programs" then select "RulesMaster FlashCards" on the "Install/Uninstall" tab of the Add/Remove Programs Properties" dialogue box. This will launch the RulesMaster FlashCards uninstall program.
Q: I have been using RulesMaster FlashCards and have just purchased RulesMaster
Pro. Should I uninstall RulesMaster FlashCards?
A: It's not necessary. RulesMaster FlashCards and RulesMaster Pro are separate programs. However, since all the FlashCards functionality is included with RulesMaster Pro, it is usually not worthwhile to continue to use RulesMaster FlashCards, so you may as well uninstall it.
If you find that RulesMaster FlashCards runs slowly or if you encounter errors, then the application probably doesn't have access to enough memory.

* Close all unnecessary applications.
* Make sure you have at least 32MB of RAM. (Right click the My Computer icon on your Desktop, then select Properties to check this.)
