¹ Some components from the Enhancer Software will install the image data they require for their User Interface in the Prefs/Presets drawer of your system partition. it is recommended not to change this, however, some more experienced users may want to install this data in an alternative location on their hard disks. If this is the case, you can change the default location from Presets to another bespoke location on your hard disk drive.


Gadgets Icon.png
Gadgets and Classes

The majority of content in the Enhancer Software requires the gadgets and classes that are supplied and will not operate correctly without these being installed.

Documentation Icon.png
Documentation

By default, all documentation for the components of the Enhancer Software are stored in the Documentation drawer of your system partition. There are options to install the documentation to an alternative location of your choice.

SDK Icon.png
Software Development Kit (SDK)

If you are a developer and have the SDK installed on your system, then any components with SDK files available can be optionally installed.

Catalogs Icon.png
Catalog Language Files

A lot of the Enhancer Software components have support for various languages. These Catalog files can be optionally installed wherever available.


For both the SDK and Catalog language files, there is an option to skip the prompt and let the installer automatically remember your choices. The first time the SDK or Catalog Language files prompt appears, a requester window will ask if you wish to apply the installation choice to every supported component in the Enhancer Software. Click the Apply To All button to do this. Alternatively if you wish to continue to receive prompts, then click the Always Prompt button.

At the end of the installation, a message will report how many installed components need a "soft" or "hard" reboot of your system. The installed components that require a "soft" reboot either start from the WBStartUp or require an assign in your system's s/user-startup file. The components that require a "hard" reboot may need adding to the system's Kickstart/Kicklayout file and are activated during the initialisation of the Kickstart.

[edit] Register and download updates

In between Enhancer Software releases, individual updated files are available to download through the Updater tool. In order to access these files, users will need to open an AmiSphere account and register the Enhancer Software product key code against this AmiSphere account.
