This is a fully executable version of RheoWin. Please note that in order to be able to install RheoWin 3 on your computer you need a RheoWin 3 License Key!
Please note: You always have to deinstall any other RheoWin 3.x version before installing a new version on the same PC!
Download the following two *.ZIP files and copy them to a single (temporary) directory on your hard drive.
Then unzip each the two *.ZIP files using any suitable unzip program.
In case you do not have an (UN)ZIP program you can download a freeware ZIP program from the following Web-site : http://www.ozemail.com.au/~nulifetv/freezip/index.html.
Because of the size of the *.cab files it is not possible anymore to copy the installation files to floppy disks.
RheoWin 3 runs ok under Window Vista but there are some issue with saving
files under Windows Vista (files are not there were they
seem to be!).
Therefore it is NOT recommended to run RheoWin 3 under Windows Vista.
However RheoWin 4.3 is 100% compatible with Windows Vista.
The change to DST rules will have no direct influence on the HAAKE RheoWin software, since it gets its date and time information from the Windows operating system. As a consequence however, HAAKE RheoWin users in the U.S. do need to ensure that their Windows installation has been updated so that its automatic clock changes conform to the new DST rules.

In order to be able to install this version of RheoWin on your computer you will need a valid RheoWin 3 license key.
A separate license key is needed for installing the tools for FDA 21 CFR part 11 compliance. A separate license key is also needed to install the new TTS (Time Temperature Superposition) tools.
The keys for RheoWin 3 consist of a company name, serial number and the key code. You will have to enter this information manually during the installation. When you receive the key per e-mail this information will be stored in a *.key or *.txt file which can be opened and viewed by using any text-editor (Notepad, Write, Word, etc.).
A Key-Diskette for RheoWin 2.xx will NOT enable you to install RheoWin 3, however the upgrade from RheoWin 2 to RheoWin 3 is free of charge (shipping and handling costs may apply).
You can request a RheoWin 3 license key using the RheoWin Key order form.
RheoWin 3 can be installed parallel to an existing RheoWin 2.xx installation if needed. Please note that RheoWin 3 can read RheoWin 2.xx data, job and page files (backward compatibility), but that RheoWin 2.xx can NOT read RheoWin 3 files !! RheoWin 3 should never be installed in the same directory as RheoWin 2.xx !!
The installation program of RheoWin 3.50 offers the user the possibility to transfer all settings (apart from the Unit settings) from a previous installation of RheoWin 3.xx. Please refer to paragraph 2.7 and 3 of the file rhw3500012_readme.doc for details.
Here's how to install RheoWin:
The installation program will guide you through the installation. Please make sure that you have a RheoWin 3 License Key (see above) readily available since the installation program will ask for this.
