How to Install:

1. QCall is green software, which needs not to be installed or uninstalled. You can extract the compressed package to a destination folder to use it directly.

2. On Windows 2000/XP/Server 2003 platforms, you can run QCall.exe to start the application. No any other special settings are needed.

3. On Windows Vista, you need to run QCall as an administrator. You can do this according to the following directions:

    (1) Right click on QCall.exe.

    (2) Select the "Properties" item on the popup menu.

    (3) Select "Compatibility" tab on the popup dialog.

    (4) Check the item "Run this program as an administrator", and click "OK" button.

In fact, QCall still works correctly for most of the software even if it does not run at administrator privilege. But for the software which run at administrator privilege, QCall could not capture any phone numbers  from them because of the inherent security feature of Vista. In this case, you need to run QCall as an administrator to capture phone numbers from these software.

4. Enable phone number capturing in Adobe Acrobat/Acrobat Reader

Many PDF files exist at present. In order to extract phone numbers from these PDF files, QCall devised a corresponding phone number capturing plugin (GetWord.api). QCall will invoke the plugin-installation program "install_plugin.exe" to install the plugin automatically, and you need not do any special setting for it.

If the phone number capturing feature for PDF files does not work correctly, you can copy this plugin file (GetWord.api) to the plugin folder of Adobe Acrobat/Acrobat Reader manually. Say, if you are using Acrobat 7.0 or Acrobat Reader 7.0. The default installation path is as follows:

Acrobat 7.0: C:\Program Files\Adobe\Acrobat 7.0\Acrobat\plug_ins
Acrobat Reader 7.0: C:\Program Files\Adobe\Acrobat Reader 7.0\Reader\plug_ins
