Unzip WebQuiz.zip and move the folder WebQuiz for example into your folder [Program files]
To have easy access to the manual, create a shortcut from [Program files]\WebQuiz\ReadMe.html
to your start menu folder.
Double-click ..\WebQuiz\WQInstal.exe to install WebQuiz into your desired web publishing folder.
If your web site uses for example the root folder C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\, it is recommended to
install WebQuiz into your folder C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\cgi-bin\. The installer will then create
a folder C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\cgi-bin\WebQuiz\ with the necessary content.
In the following lines, I will reference "your web site root folder" as [wwwroot] instead of "C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\" in the example above.
Your folder [wwwroot]\cgi-bin\WebQuiz\ needs to have execute and write permission (most probably, you
will grant this for the whole cgi-bin folder)
WebQuiz is now installed in English. To change the language to German, copy all the files
from the respective folder to your folder [wwwroot]\cgi-bin\WebQuiz\.
Example: To get the German version working, take all the files from your folder
[Program files]\WebQuiz\Deutsch\ (not the additional folders), and copy them into [wwwroot]\cgi-bin\WebQuiz\.
The installer did add a registry key under
with the value of the actual path, where WebQuiz.dll is installed.
This makes it possible for WebQuiz.dll to "know" where to look for the different
folders and files it uses. On the other hand, this means, if you need multiple
installations of WebQuiz on one server, you can use only the version you installed
last as an ISAPI application.
Nevertheless, you may install WebQuiz several times and use all installations at
the same time (e.g. to get several interface languages). Use the CGI applications in this
case beside the last installation, which may be used as
http://www.localhost/ stands for the URL of your web site!
To run WebQuiz, start your browser and open the URL
for the CGI application or
for the ISAPI application.
If you open the URL
you get a page named "index.html", which will auto redirect you to the CGI WebQuiz.
The folder [Programme]\WebQuiz\English\ISAPI\ or [Programme]\WebQuiz\Deutsch\ISAPI\
contains another file "index.html". If you copy this to your folder [wwwroot]\cgi-bin\WebQuiz\
, you will be auto redirected to the ISAPI version.
WebQuiz will start now unregistered. To register, see
