Step #1... Insert the Up-Link ie5 CD into your machine.

The install program should start to run "automatically" when you insert the CD... If it does, you will get the screen to the right.

If it doesn't "auto-run", then go to Step #1a.

If you want to read the "Release Notes", then click on that button first and it will tell you about what you will be doing.

Otherwise click on "Install Internet Explorer 5"... and proceed to Step #2 (SKIP Steps #1a, #1b & #1c)

Step #3...  You will see "Dotted" the "Install Now - Full set of components...
We recommend accepting this choice and clicking "Next".

If you have limited Hard Disk space, or just don't want to install everything now, select the "Customize your browser" choice and choose only those "extras" you want to install at this time.

If you "bump" into a need for one of the options later, ie5 will automatically bring up a "Install on demand" screen and let you install it at that time!

Install Now

Step #6... Request to "Restart"... Win95 users will get this screen after the Dial-Up Networking 1.3 install is completed...

Win98 users will get a different screen, but it will also be a request to "Restart"...

In either case, click on "YES" to allow the install to continue by re-starting your machine.

ul-ie5-06.jpg (31366 bytes)
(Click to Enlarge)
Step #7... When Windows re-starts, you will see a screen similar to the one on the right showing you the progress of the install program as it updates your system files.

Windows MAY ask you here to insert your Win95 or Win98 install CD... This is your original Win95 or Win98 CD that came with your machine.  Again, you MUST have your Windows CD in order for Install to continue and finish, or your computer will "hang" here and you will not be able to finish the install successfully...

Updating Files

Step #7a... When Windows is updating settings, you may occasionally get the "Version Conflict" message stating your machine has a "newer version" of a file being installed...

Click "YES" to this message to keep the "newer file"... clicking "no" may cause problems with the upgrade and may cause your computer to be "unstable" when finished with the upgrade.

If it does, go to Step #10.

If it doesn't, Double-Click on the NEW Up-Link Internet icon on your desktop (as shown to the right) to bring up  the Dial-Up window.

Then go to Step #10.
