Installing the application for all users

  1. Log in with an administrator account and download the application.
  2. Open the DMG file and drag the "Soundslides" folder to the computer's "Applications" folder (it is important to copy the entire folder and not just the application within).
  3. Launch the application and register.

You've now registered every user on the computer, along with any you add later.

Installing the application for just one user

  1. Open the DMG file and drag the "Soundslides" folder to the computer's "Applications" folder (it is important to copy the entire folder and not just the application within).
  2. Launch the application and register.

Your account is now registered. However, no other user will be able to use the application without also registering.

Special considerations

Installation with FileVault enabled

FileVault is a Mac OS X feature that secures the user's entire "Home" folder by encrypting its contents. Unfortunately, it also causes a problem with the way Soundslides and Soundslides Plus encode audio.

Here's the workaround: In the Mac OS X "Users" folder, there is a folder named "Shared." This folder is outside FileVault protection and accessible to every user on the computer. You will have to save projects there, and likewise import your image and audio files from there. In other words, all your files must be outside the FileVault-protected area.

Installation with a network-boot system or networked user folders

This may require the project to be built in the "Shared" folder within the "Users" folder as well, depending on the network preferences (see the above note on FileVault for more information).
