D.  FILES INSTALLED

A.  INSTALLING THE ATLAS GIS 4.0 UPDATE 1.0
After downloading ATLAS_UPDATE.exe, run the setup program by:
1)  Navigating in a Windows browser to the directory where you downloaded 
    ATLAS_UPDATE.exe file to and double-clicking on the icon
Or
2)  Running \ATLAS_UPDATE.exe from the Start Menu where 
     represents the location of the ATLAS_UPDATE.exe program.

Follow the on-screen directions which will prompt you to confirm the directory 
where the Atlas GIS 4.0 program is located.

B.  BUG FIXES IN THIS UPDATE
The fixes in this update for Atlas GIS 4.0:
1)  LINE STYLES - Includes a fix to the line style bug where several of the line 
    styles were either missing from the line style picker or were not the correct 
    line style.  
    When selected for a feature, these line styles would generate significant 
    display errors and could not be used.  This issue is fixed.

2)  SHAPE FILE RECORD HEADERS- Fixes a problem with the way that Atlas GIS 4.0 
    would export a geo layer to a shape file; 
    now the record headers are properly written with the 'Big Endian' format.  
    This error would not effect shape files being read into ESRI's ArcView software, 
    but could have caused an error when working with other applications that read 
    shape files (*.shp).

3)  Atlas Reports - This update will install any missing Atlas Reports files, 
    if necessary.

C.  ENHANCEMENTS TO ATLAS GIS 4.0 IN THIS UPDATE
1)  A new Query Builder application is included in this update.  This application 
    is run through FILE | SQL ACCESS to connect to spreadsheet, MS Access, 
    and other ODBC databases such as SQL Server.  It is a tool to query the 
    database connected to and write out a table (*.dbf) that can be opened 
    into Atlas GIS.

This Query Builder connects to the most current file types of:

      EXCEL
      LOTUS
      dBASE IV
      ACCESS
      and ODBC Datasources.

An updated Agisw.hlp help file will be installed that includes 
information on using Query Builder.
