Windows Configuration

As a part of the installation process, Compass sets Windows so it knows how to work with cave survey files. This allows Windows to perform special operations that make it easier for you work with cave data. If you have copied Compass program files manually onto your hard drive, Windows will not know about Compass and the special features will not be available. The same thing can happen if you move Compass files to a different location. The best way to solve this problem is to reinstall Compass using the standard installation program that is used to distribute the program. Copies of Compass are always available on the internet at:


Manual Configuration. You can manually configure some of the Windows settings that integrate Compass into Windows. To do this, you would use the “View|Folder Options” in Windows Explorer. (See Windows help and manuals for detailed information on setting associations.)
