You must have:


Savant web server

As you will have noticed when your computer was rebooted, the Savant program window shows on your screen.

(The Savant web server aplication makes it posible to use this interactive database, which is written in the PERL language)

You need this Savant program to be able to use the interactive database so do not close it if you want to use the interactive database !

You can can customize the appearance of Savant in the following way for Windows 95, Windows 98 and Windows NT.


You can can customize the appearance of Savant in the following way for Windows XP/ME.

EACH of them:

The next time your computer starts up the Savant program will be minimized, but always active.


If you do not want that the Savant program is active while you are NOT using the WHERE OR WHEN discography you need to take the following steps.

First find out where Savant has placed its information which your operating system reads to start the program after starting your computer.

The next time you start your computer, Savant will not be started !

Since we need Savant to be able to use the discography we need to make a shortcut on the desktop of your computer so we can start Savant manually when we need it.

We now have created a shortcut on the desktop for the Savant web server.

Don't forget to start the Savant Web server before starting the WHERE OR WHEN discography.
