I hope you have your product key I lost mine for my old Pro-197 and that was that. I thought when you download it it opens by itself?!

Unzip the download file, and then double click the "Win500.exe" file.

We have 2 links at the bottom of this wiki article on getting started with Win500..;.

Getting Started with your GRE/RS Object Oriented Scanner - The RadioReference Wiki

And undoubtedly there are YouTube videos out there....

By the way to read a PDF file you need Adobe Acrobat or one of the many excellent PDF readers such as the one offered by Foxit. A well structured Google search will turn them up...Mike

Win500 will not open PDF files, Can't imagine why someone told you it would. If Adobe Reader won't open it it's likely corrupt.

Someone sent me a copy or a file of the new MSCOMM System for Maine and it will not open

I cannot find that

Are you sure you are running Win500??

The top tool bar has the word "File" in it.

Click on that and you should see the word "open".

Click on that and point it to your file.
