Is there anywhere a "for dummies" instruction to guide you to all the different things to install and do, to get the conversion going?
Map2kap in XP
Make a workfolder and put a shortcut to Cmd.exe into it.right click that shortcut and choose properties.Delete everything in the "start in"place.
Or use the default cmd prompt in start menu...it'll goto
"C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator" folder.
Remember that.Go there by browsing so you are familiar with where it is.
Make a shortcut to this Workfolder on your desktop
INSTALL Ruby:"rubyinstaller-1.8.6-p398.exe" worked for me and XP but those on the bleeding edge of Microsoft will have to help you otherwise...
INSTALL GetGnuWin32 and thereafter copy tiffinfo.exe,libtiff3.dll,jpeg62.dll,zlib1.dll from C:\Program Files\GnuWin32\bin into WORKfolder.
copy to WorkFolder ALL the files: from libbsb-0.0.7,
copy tiffinfo.exe,libtiff3.dll,jpeg62.dll,zlib1.dll from C:\Program Files\GnuWin32\bin folder
Copy the shortcut "StartCommandPromptWithRuby"from your start menu to WORK folder...and any other shortcuts that speed things up because you will be living in WORK Folder awhile...and how about a shortcut to Ozi too?
START the ruby shortcut then,at the prompt,type:
It hopefully responds with simple hints.
When you get that happening,you will be ready to start converting and further questions...
