    Downloading a demo or update for WinTMS 3.0

    To try out the Marksheet demo or update your licensed copy, just click on the underlined word "download" about 6 lines below.  Your computer will ask you to choose a location - on your desktop or hard drive (remember where!).  It takes about 5 minutes on a modem.
    Doubleclick on the downloaded file "MakeTMS3.exe", click "unzip", "OK" and "close".
    That's it for the update.  If it is a first time installation of version 3, you have to open My Computer, C drive, WinTMS folder and doubleclick on WinTMS3.exe.

    Download WinTMS3 demo/update (2.1 MB, June 3, 2013)    see list of changes up a screenfull

    The installation file, "MakeTMS3.exe" no longer fits on a floppy disk.  Put it in your staff folder so teachers can run it over the school network.  To transport it to another computer via floppy disk, install it on the first computer, then copy the files from the WinTMS folder to two floppy disks.  The WinTMS3.exe program will occupy one disk by itself.

    Download the WinTMS Workshop - an hour-long step by step workshop for beginners.
    Microsoft Word document, 600 kb zipped.

    WinTMS 3 will work as a demo unless you have purchased it.  Installing it does not overwrite your WinTMS2, but it will make version 3 run when you double click on a file.  To go back to 2.0, just open My computer, C drive, WinTMS folder and doubleclick on WinTMS2.exe.  If you save a real marks file with 3.0, you may not be able to open it with 2.0.
