How to Install Additional Skins    
Every additional Audio Notes Recorder skin comes as a separate downloadable zip archive. In order to be properly installed, it should be unpacked to program's root skin folder existing under its main working folder, while preserving the folder structure contained in the archive.

Manually installing additional skin    

1. Download skin archive. (e.g. Woody.zip)
2. Use Windows Explorer to open Audio Notes Recorder root skin folder existing under its main working folder.
(e.g. C:\Program Files\XemiComputers\Audio Notes Recorder\Skin)
3. Create new skin subfolder according to the name of the skin archive.
(e.g. C:\Program Files\XemiComputers\Audio Notes Recorder\Skin\Woody)
4. Open Woody.zip archive with your zip utility. (if you are using WinZip see instructions above)
5. Unpack skin .set definition file (Woody.set) to program's root skin folder.
(e.g. C:\Program Files\XemiComputers\Audio Notes Recorder\Skin)
6. As a final step, unpack all other files contained in skin archive to the new skin subfolder created in step 3.
(e.g. C:\Program Files\XemiComputers\Audio Notes Recorder\Skin\Woody)


Contents of additional skin zip archive    

Every additional skin archive contains a series of images in bmp format representing the skin itself, one .set skin definition file and optionally a font .ttf file to be used for ticker and info display in the program. Obviously, the number of files contained in skin archive could slightly vary depending on the skin.


ZIP files    

Zip is the de facto standard for distributing archived files over the Internet. There are many freeware and shareware programs for working with zip files available at major download sites. (e.g. www.download.com)

We can specifically recommend using WinZip (www.winzip.com) as a leading product in that range.
