You need only a handfull of files in a folder to run.
Installation of Piwi’s Minisuite is easy.
Unpack the .zip file in a folder of your choice.
Please make sure to unzip it into a folder you have total access to, as some parts of the application, like the Diagram Editor, need the right to create a subfolder.
If you do not have the proper rights, you cannot add any newly created symbols to the diagram library.
Also, Piwi’s Minisuite is designed to work on a regular USB-stick, in order to have access to my Organizer, Office and other applications whenever I need them.
At the moment the program needs about 40-50 MB of diskspace.
Piwi’s Minisuite needs the Microsoft file gdiplus.dll on your system. Normally this file is there. To check that, first call the Writer module. If an error occurs,
install the files in the sub folder Microsoft_Redist_GDIPlus (WindowsXP-KB975337-x86-ENU.exe).
