* Important Notes Regarding Desktop Installation

During the program installation, you may be told that your computer needs to be restarted. In such a case, save all open documents and allow the installation program to restart your computer. Restarting your computer yourself won't work - let the program restart it for you. When your computer comes back up, simply run the installation file again. To do this, select Run from the Start Menu and Browse to select the file you downloaded - HFCSETUP.EXE . If you don't remember where you put the file, select Find from the Start Menu and then Files and Folders. Type in "HFCSETUP.EXE" and Find Now. Make sure it searches on the drive you saved the file to (i.e. All Local Hard Drives). When the file turns up on the list, double-click on it to open it. If it does not turn up on the list, redownload it. Your browser should find the file in your cache and it should download instantaneously.

If you are asked to reboot your computer more than once, then you need to download the version of the program that does NOT include the VB Runtime files because of an operating system issue. These are the lower half of download links above. You can download one of those files here.

* Important Notes Regarding Palm Installation

After you download and run the Palm installation, there are additional recommended installation steps to take to get the most out of the program. For more information on how you can best use the Palm Edition to ensure that you receive the most accurate fertility calculations, please view the Palm Installation page.

Remember that the Palm Edition is designed to work best when coupled with the desktop version. Both versions can be downloaded above.
