    You will need SparkFS or a similar utility in order to extract the files. Assuming you are using SparkFS, installation is very simple. Just drag the !SharpEye application from the archive to the desired location on your hard disc.

    System modules

    In order to run SharpEye on a 26-bit system (RISC OS 3 or RISC OS 4), certain updated System modules are needed. If these are not already installed on your machine, please download them from their page on Castle's Iyonix Web site. Users of RISC OS 5 computers do not need to download these modules are they are built into the operating system.

    Upgrade instructions

    (These directions assume you are using SparkFS.)
    1. Make sure that the Newer option for copying files is turned on. To do this, click Menu on any directory display, go to the Options submenu, and ensure there is a tick against the Newer item.
    2. Drag the version of SharpEye you have just downloaded from the archive's directory display and drop it on top of your existing copy of SharpEye. This will update your copy.

    If you don't have SparkFS, or you have any difficulty with the above, it may help to know that the upgrade version is a complete copy of SharpEye apart from the registration file, !SharpEye.User.config; you can therefore take the registration file from your existing copy and store it within the new version.
