Some customers have reported that they can find Part I of the Macintosh Tutorial on their hard drives, but cannot find Part II anywhere either on the System 7.5 CD-ROM or on the hard drive. Part I and Part II of the Macintosh Tutorial were created in different applications and saved as different types of documents, which is causing the confusion
Installation - To make sure that the Macintosh Tutorial runs correctly, you must first run the Macintosh Tutorial Installer from the System 7.5 CD that came with your Macintosh computer. To run the Installer, double-click its icon and select Install (onto your hard drive). The software installs a file called Macintosh Tutorial (an Apple Guide file) and a folder called Tutorial Items into the Extensions folder inside the System Folder. You cannot run the Macintosh Tutorial program directly from the CD.
Correct Way to Run Tutorial
Incorrect Way to Run TutorialMany users try to run the tutorial from within the Tutorial Items folder instead of using the Help menu. This folder contains a MacroMind Director file called Macintosh Tutorial Part I and its associated data files. If you double click on Part I, it opens and runs Part I of the tutorial. When you get to the end or quit in the middle, it takes you back to the Finder without the option of going to Part II. This is not the way the Macintosh Tutorial was intended to be used. It was only intended to be run from within Apple Guide.
SummaryYou cannot run the tutorial from the CD-ROM without first installing it onto your hard drive. Nor can you properly run the Macintosh Tutorial from inside the System Folder by double-clicking on the Part I MacroMind Director file. For the tutorial to run properly, you must run it from the Help Menu. This is the only way you can "find" and run Part II of the tutorial.
