InvRon.zip Contains a complete Windows setup package for InvRon. Unzip this file into a convenient (preferrably empty) folder and run Setup.exe. This is version 1.1.13 The .zip file is 1,787,011 bytes long and contains 18 files.
InvRon uses a freeware printer control called SwiftPrint. SwiftPrint in turn uses subroutines from the Microsoft Foundation Classes library version 4.2 (MFC). Many programs use MFC subroutines, however, at least as of Windows 98, the MFC routines are not usually included with a normal Windows installation. Your system may already have them as a result of installing another program. If your system does not have them, you will see errors when you try to install InvRon. The errors will refer to swiftprint.ocx
You can download the necessary files from various sites. Here are two:
To install these DLL's,
With the MFC files installed, rerun the InvRon Setup.exe to get SwiftPrint properly installed.
The help file for InvRon is in HTML rather than the standard Windows help file format. It will open in your default browser. The help file uses HTML frames to display a table of contents in one part of the screen and the text in another.
The help file actually consists of three HTML files: one for the frameset, one for the table of contents and one for the text. The help HTML files can be downloaded separately as InvRonHelp.zip After unzipping, point your browser at InvRonHelpFrames.htm
Most browsers display frames well, however if yours does not, or if you just don't like frames you may download this file InvRonHelpNoFrames.zip
The frames version of the help file actually consists of three files: InvRonHelpFrames.htm, InvRonHelpTOC.htm and InvRonHelpText.htm Delete or rename them and unzip InvRonHelpNoFrames.htm from InvRonNoFrames.zip into the same directory as InvRon.exe. InvRonHelpNoFrames.htm will then function as the help file.
