The software is contained in a single self-extracting archive file - CASENOTE.EXE. The archive contains the following files:
CASENOTE.TBK - A loader book used to give general instructions and to load the first patient's notes.
PETER.CBK - A patient file. Note that ALL patient files MUST have the suffix .CBK and not .CBK. Make a copy of this file and rename it something else. Keep the original unmodified so that if you make a mistake while reauthoring it, you can always revert to the original. Edit your patient file in Author mode. DO NOT switch to Reader mode to try it out. Instead, save your file and then try it out with the runtime version of ToolBook. That way you won't end up saving versions with the notes partially revealed or dialog boxes with greyed buttons. If you want a detailed description of PETER.CBK, download CASEDOCS.EXE, but be warned, when expanded it's big , over 15 megabytes! (You will need PageMaker 4.0 or above).
If you want to try reauthoring Peter to a new patient, download REAUTHOR.EXE which contains a ToolBook application giving details on how to reauthor Peter to Olayele, a Nigerian adult with jaundice.
CNGLOSS.TBK - The glossary. Very simple to add new entries. Look at the script of the background field "Wordlist".
FILEDLG.DLL - A dynamic link library giving access to the standard Microsoft Windows 3.1 file-handling dialog boxes.
COMMDLG.DLL - Microsoft's common dialog dll. For those of you still using Windows 3.0. Put it in your \WINDOWS\SYSTEM directory.
TBKDLG.DLL - Provides the ToolBook access to dialog boxes. If you want to change our dialog boxes, you can find their templates in the Dialog buttons and these can be copied into the ToolBook dialog editor, changed and then pasted back.
CASENOTE.TXT - The text you are now reading.
The software requires both the authoring and the runtime versions of ToolBook, but does not require the multimedia extensions.
If you need to install or update your copy of the ToolBook runtime click here.
Make sure that your software is correctly configured to download to disk (but not to run .EXE files immediately) and then click on the filename.
