(See 5. Installing HASP Driver ) Windows Version To change display color, use "Control Panel"->"Display Properties". To use RETAS!PRO, a hardware dongle (HASP) must be fixed. Before fixing a dongle, quit all working application then quit system and power off the CPU unit. Double-click a "Display" icon, then the following window appears. Select "Settings" using a tab. Notice Do not install and detach during powering on the computer. When installing and detaching the dongle with there a power supply, the dongle etc. might be damaged. The dongle is weak to static electricity, so do not remove the dongle as much as possible once installed it, and do not leave it in a dry place and do not touch it in winter time as much as possible. When the dongle had broken and cannot launch software, please contact your dealer. Serial number is attached on the dongle.

RETAS!PRO Start-Up Guide Mac OS Version (9) Setup of Memory To change a display color, use "Monitor" or "Monitor & Sound" in "Control Panel" folder in a system folder (Mac OS 8/9 only) (Mac OS 8/9), or "System Preference"->"Display" (Mac OS X). Before launcing RETAS!PRO, set memory size. Example: In the case of Mac OS X, when click "Display", then the following window appears. (1) Click an icon in Finder. (2) Use "Get Info"->"Memory" at "File" menu. On the display color list, the number of color which is able to use on the current screen is shown. Choose "1.67m" and click it. This means the monitor is applied to full color display. There are some cases possible not to select full color display according to model of your machine, capacity of mounted VRAM, inserted video card. For this case, increase VRAM or purchase a video card which full color display is available. (3) Change "Preferred Size" at "Memory" in the information dialogue to the memory size that prefers to be allocated. (4) The size of the memory that should be allocated changes depending on the size of the image used. At least 30MB(30000K), if possible allocate 90MB or more. At "About This Computer " on apple menu, you can confirm current memory condition of application. 24 25
