To install the beta test version of the Credit Subsidy Calculator (CSC)
- Use the right mouse button to
download the installation files (2.5 MB).
- When the menu appears, click on "Save ... as" option.
- When the "Save as" dialog appears, choose a folder for downloading and
click the "Save" button. Remember the name of the folder because you will need
it later on. The "newcscinstall2.exe" file holds the files needed for
installation. It is not the CSC.
- Switch to "explorer" or to a "command prompt," go to the folder where you
saved "newcscinstall2.exe"," and run cscir1.exe. This will start the installation. You will
be asked to choose a drive and folder for the installation of the CSC.
- While the installation program is running, you will have a couple of
chances to cancel the installation program. Doing so is harmless. If you
cancel the installation program, you can restart it by repeating the previous
step only. (You do not need to download "newcscinstall2.exe"" again.)
- If you are reinstalling the software (updating to a new version or for a new set of
economic assumptions) you should select the "repair" option as shown below:
- When the installation is finished, the "newcscinstall2.exe"" file is no
longer needed. You can delete it if you wish to save disk space.
- The beta test CSC is now ready to be used.

2005), then you have the current release.

install the current release.
