    "Good, but the description given with the download isn't quite accurate I think."

    March 1, 2005  |   By Xopher


    Very, very easy to use, and no registry files needed! (Big plus to anyone who has to run Registry Mechanic more than once a day because of naffing installs gone wrong.) To set the path it's just Control Panel -> System -> Advanced -> Environmental Variables, and then clicking on path append a ;C:\DM\Bin to the value, not hard at all. It's not needed, you could still type out the full directory location of the DMC compiler, but still, it makes life alot easier.


    It would seem the claims of including "the MicroEmacs editor" aren't quite correct, and their download off the homepage isn't the best. (or at least I couldn't get it to work, but that might just be my own finky ISP.)

    Another thing that's a con, though not really of the program, is that the user should make sure to save the projects he or she is working on in a directory other than My Documents, especially if running XP. It's just a pain to CD through the Documents and Settings folder, and I'd recomend just adding a simple Projects folder to the C:\DM folder if you extracted it there.
