New Users: Follow the directions below and be sure to download and extract ALL 3 FILES. Some new users forget the third file, in which case, the app won't work.
DISCLAIMER: This information is provided absolutely free, and in no way implies any connection with any comic price guide or publisher. This is simply the electronic version of asking a friend to look up a value.
IMPORTANT: Make sure you always have the latest version of the program files (last updated on 04/09/2004 - v5.3.5) and the Monthly Update file (last updated 06/27/2010 - through June 2010).
You should download the actual application files (number 2 above) any time a more recent version is available (which shouldn't be too often). Other than that, each month all you have to do is download the the Monthly Update file (number 1 above) and then extract it (it will copy over over the old one).
|If you have not gotten the message from
the clever little graphic to the left, let me reiterate (I cannot stress this point
strongly enough) - before running the Update,
Backup your Realms of Wonder data file - REALMS50.MDB.
I always copy my Realms50.mdb file to another directory before running the update. That way, if anything goes wrong (it shouldn't), I simply copy it back, and I'm back where I was. In addition, I would make sure I have a copy on a floppy (or anywhere other than the hard drive).
The update process changes data on many of the records in your collection. Making a backup prior to running the update guarantees you can always set everything back to the way it was.
