|Installing The Palace Client
On this page we want to give you step-by-step information on how to install the Client for The Palace on a computer running Windows 95 (and 98/NT). We also provide you the links to the Client for other Operation Systems in the links menu on the right of this page.
1) Download the client by selecting it from the links on the right of this page. If the download is really slow, Cancel the current download and try to download from another site.
2) Go to the directory in which you downloaded the Client and double click (single click on Windows 98 with 'Webstyle Navigation' enabled) on 'PalaceClient3_4setup.exe'.
3) The setup program starts.. A menu will pop-up. Click on 'Continue' to continue with the installation.
4) Read the License Agreement. If you agree with it, click on 'I Agree' to continue the installation. The Palace Client is 100% free, so don't worry about any small letters putting you into debts.
5) The setup program will now check for earlier installations of The Palace software. If it finds an earlier installation the setup will ask you to close down this software before continuing.
6) The setup program will ask you where to put the client. We would recommend putting it in a directory called 'palaceclient', so when you decide to install a Palace Server it's easier to see the difference between both of them.. Select (or type) the name of the directory and select a drive with enough free space (keep in mind that the client will download files like a browser whenever you enter a new world, so keep enough growing space). Click on 'OK' when you specified the right installation path.
7) The Client will now install. It may take some time, depending on the speed of your system.
8) When the installation is finished you can launch The Palace by clicking on 'Start', then go to 'Programs, then to 'The Palace' and finally click on 'The Palace32'.
9) The program will start now. We show you how to enter a world in the next section 'Using the Client'.
