hopefully be helpful in running the program. If you really, desperately

The Online Help has recently been ported to this web site, primarily for users
of the Mac OS X and Java versions. The content is the same as the
compiled version which is included with the Microsoft Windows installation.

Having Problems Running at All?
If Songsheet Generator won't run on Windows because of a message about a missing DLL:
If the message mentions "gdiplus.dll," then you need to install the GDI+ system.
Download from here or get it
directly from Microsoft.
- If the message mentions "msvcp60.dll," then try one of the following downloads:
msvcp60.dll (minimum) or
vcredist.exe (everything you might possibly need).
msvcp60.dll should be dropped in the Songsheet Generator program folder; or running vcredist will update msvcp60.dll as well as other Windows system DLL's.
It is a redistributable file also available directly from Microsoft.
