Putting a C-Law software icon on your Windows desktop

 By default the installation program does not attempt to put at an icon on the desktop.

You will have an item in the program menu listing "C-Law 2000" which will contain at least two sub items - "C-Law 2000" and "Upgrade software".

C-Law 2000 menu

Note that the menu may refer to C-Law 2000 - this was the original version of C-Law 2000 series and if you see C-Law 2000 on your menu it does not mean you have the older version. The title screen on starting C-Law tells you the current software you are using. The remainder of the this page refers to C-Law 2000 as this is probably what you will see when setting up menus and shortcuts.
