"Currently I own two wonderful jyotish softwares but they do not offer the predictive power that you are developing with Stock Compass and Vjyotish - I believe you are the one computer jyotish pioneer in this matter and I look forward to a long relationship with you. "

F.A.Q.- Installation / Download related [06]


I am having problems in installing your program through downloaded installer application ("vjinstal.exe"). Any suggestions?

"vjinstal.exe" is the installer application for "Vjyotish", downloaded by you from our site. It is a self-extracting zip archive created through "WinZip Self-Extractor". Normally, when you run "vjinstal.exe", it should create required folder (C:\Vjyotish) and sub-folders on your C: drive and should extract all stuffed files to the created folder by itself. "WinZip Self-Extractor" is a internationally recognized utility, which runs on Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows NT 4.0, Windows 2000, Windows Me and Windows-XP (Home and Professional versions, both). The Self-extracting Zip archives (with .exe extension), created by WinZip, may be run under any of the Windows versions.

However, due to unknown reasons, "WinZip Self-Extractor" fails to execute properly on some machines sometimes. When you try to run the installer application
"vjinstal.exe", it appears to be executing but abruptly ends suddenly. It does not create the folder [C:\Vjyotish] or does not extract all stuffed files to this folder.

An easy solution to this problem:

If you are also faced with this problem,  you may still install Vjyotish very easily. In fact, the
"vjinstal.exe" is nothing but a bundle of compressed files, stuffed within a single self-extracting zip archive. You may de-compress these files through any decompression (zip) utility available on your computer (for example "WinZip", "WinRAR", "PKUnzip" etc.). If you do not have any such utility available, you may download the evaluation version of "WinZip" from http://winzip.com/.

Now go through the following steps to install Vjyotish:


First of all, make a temporary folder (for example: folder "\TempVJ", with the help of Windows Explorer.


Now, open "vjinstal.exe" (the downloaded installer application), with the help of any de-compression utility (like "WinZip"). You shall be able to view the names of all stuffed files within the "vjinstal.exe". Select all stuffed files and extract them to the just created temporary folder in previous step (for example C:\TempVJ\ folder).


Now, close "WinZip" (or any other decompression utility, you used to extract files in previous step). All compressed files within the installer are now available in the temporary folder (C:\TempVJ\).


Now run (double click) "install.bat" (a MS-DOS batch file) in the temporary folder (C:\TempVJ\). It will start normal program installer and shall also create required folder ("C:\Vjyotish") and sub-folders within it. Just follow the simple instructions appearing on your screen during the ongoing installation process.


After the completion of above step, "Vjyotish" would be properly installed. The main application is "Vjyotish.exe". You may run it directly. The shortcuts (icons) to "Vjyotish.exe" would also be placed on your desktop and program-menu.


Make a blank sub-folder, named "Vjyotish" in folder C:\Program Files\  (i.e. "C:\Program Files\Vjyotish\") also. The program creates some temporary files in this folder while running. This folder will contain 1 or 2 very small files, which are auto-generated by program.
Thank you very much for patiently going through this document. We hope, you will find the exercise worthwhile while you extensively explore "Vjyotish". If you still find it difficult to install Vjyotish, please report us your problem with complete details.
