Windows installation instructions
To install the Special Issue Collection on a PC with a Windows operating system, you have the choice of basic (standard) or a full installation. In basic installation, you will install the index and search function of the collection onto your hard drive and insert the disc as prompted to read
stories. In full installation, which we recommend, you will copy the entire contents of the collection to your hard drive.

Basic or standard installation
1. Log in with an account that has administrator access to your computer. Insert the Special Issue Collection disc into the DVD-ROM of your computer. Run setup.exe if the Auto Play prompt pops up. (If nothing launches upon insertion of the disc, you may need to browse the DVD and run setup.exe manually. On Windows XP, the installation wizard may launch automatically.) If prompted, allow changes to your computer by clicking “yes.” The Installation Wizard will open. Follow the installer on-screen instructions. NOTE: Installation time will vary due to the large number of files being copied and the performance of your computer. While the main progress bar may indicate only a few minutes or less for installation, typical basic installation may take longer.
2. When the installation is complete, click Finish.
3. If you wish to use only the basic installation method, your installation is complete. Double-click the Special Issue Collection shortcut and begin enjoying the digital collection.
4. As you call up issues in the collection, you will be prompted to insert the disc as needed to read stories. Hit OK when prompted and insert the disc, allowing 10 to 15 seconds for the newly inserted disc to “spin up,” then double-click on your selection again.

Full installation
(Preferred method; all stories are downloaded on computer hard drive.)
Instead of inserting a disc to view magazine pages, you can install all the issues onto the hard drive of your computer. Full installation can be done any time after basic installation. NOTE: For full installation, copying the remaining content may take an additional hour or more beyond the basic installation.
1. Follow the instructions for basic installation through completion of step 2.
2. Launch the Special Issue Collection application by double-clicking its shortcut. Insert the disc into your computer if it is not already inserted. Do not re-run the installation, and disregard any Auto Play prompts.
3. Go into the Options menu. Click the button for “Save magazine collection to computer.” (If you don’t already have the disc in, you will be prompted to insert it.)
4. The dialog will tell you the space required and ask if you would like to continue. Hit OK to proceed copying.
5. Once complete, all issues will have been copied, and you will no longer require the disc to call up stories. You can now exit the Options menu.
