1.0 - INSTALLING CONSTRUCTION NOTES MANAGER

1  -  Navigate to CNM's "Setup.exe" file and double click it.  This will initiate the installation program.
    Follow all prompts as reqested.  You may wish to choose "yes" when asked to save
    backup information.  This can be used later in case you need to restore system settings if     
    uninstalling the program.

2  -  Once installed, the program is ready to run in AutoCAD.  However, if for some reason it
     appears not to be working, see below for manual setup of the program.

Step 1 - Open AutoCAD and type "Options" and click on "Support File Search Path"

Step 2 - Click on "Add" and then "Browse" in order to add the program's folder "CNM" to the

      dialogue box click "Apply" or "Ok" and Close the Opions dialogue box.

Step 3 - At the command prompt, type

(command "menuload" "cnm.mnu")
.  This will bring in the pull down menu "CNM"
