Installation notes

Windows 2000

To install WEFT on Windows 2000 or Windows XP, you need to be a member of the 'Power User' user group or the 'Administrators' user group. This is true when installing any software on Windows 2000 that provides COM services. Once an Administrator or Power User has installed WEFT, any user may use it.

Because of security restrictions all users on Windows 2000 and Windows XP will share an installation of WEFT. Uninstalling WEFT on these systems will uninstall it for all users.

Windows 98, Windows Me

All users may install and use WEFT on these operating systems. Local security policies may prevent or enable users to install WEFT with more or less access rights. Please contact you local administrator or your help desk for assistance if needed.


You do not need to uninstall previous versions of WEFT before installing this version. However, WEFT should not be running when you install an updated version.
