Every program should have release notes. This document contains important information about the installation and use of the program. For following versions, it contains changes that the user should know of.
Of course there always is a readme file.  This document will only mention general information about the program, like licensing policy, status of the version etc.

A lot of users never read a readme file, release notes or even a manual. Many don't seem to know where such a document is to be found. I must admit that I myself only glance over readme file and release notes, and read a manual only when a problem occurs Wink.
A program desktop icon makes it easy to start the program. But there is another way to start a program, by using the programs menu found under Start, Programs. This menu usually contains links to all relevant documents associated with the release.

In the case of FsXPand and FsClient, the program menu contains shortcuts to the following documents:

readme.rtf - see above
release.rtf - see above
getstarted.txt - a short guide to get the programs up and running
network.doc - a short description of setting up a network
Key_codes.txt - description of the currently implemented key commands
manual.htm - the manual
license.doc - licensing information

The FMS version has also a document called FMS_Getstarted.rtf.
And of course there is Gauge3D_TD.rtf to explain the data model for the gauges, to be used with the gauge editor (to be found in the program menu)

Before you start asking a question via e-mail, or start a new topic on this forum, please check the appropriate documents, and the manual.

Thank you for your concern.
