If you wish to receive free updates in future (usually extra illustrations) contact Ian Gibson by e-mail.

You can install the data to a different folder from the default location for program data. (The default location varies with the version of Windows, but once you have installed MatchMaker you can find the location by choosing Data Location on the Advanced menu.) If you want to install to a different folder, a file called dataloc.txt must contain the new address of the data for the program to run properly. You make a file dataloc.txt containing the correct data folder address on one line, for example
RESTRICTIONS: If you wish, the three files may be copied onto other computers. CDs may be given to others as long as the following information is transmitted and that you do not charge for them. The copyright for the illustrations is held by the photographers and the images may not be used for other purposes without their permission. The program and descriptions may not be used for any other purpose without the permission of Ian Gibson. The program is not designed to determine edibility of mushrooms and it should not be used for that purpose.
