Entering License Codes
Shortly after you register, you will be emailed your license code.
From the MoonDriver menu (right-click), select "Enter License Codes".
The following box will appear:
Enter your name EXACTLY as it appears in the license email. Uppercase & lowercase matter!
If possible, please use copy / paste to enter your name and license codes.
Do not enter the quote marks (" ") from the email, just the contents within the quotes.
Press the OK button after the license codes have been entered. It can take up to 30 seconds for the license to take effect.
You can verify your license by choosing "About MoonDriver" from the MoonDriver menu.
Thank You for registering MoonDriver!
From the MoonDriver menu (right-click), select "About MoonDriver".
The box will display the MoonDriver version, a copyright notice, and any license information.
You can start MoonDriver manually via the Windows start menu.
As part of your MoonDriver installation, a shortcut to MoonDriver is placed in your Startup folder.
(This is typically C:\Documents and Settings\YourUserName\Start Menu\Programs\Startup)
Whenever you log into your computer, MoonDriver will start up automatically because of this shortcut link.
If you do not want MoonDriver to start automatically, you can delete this link.
If you want multiple copies of MoonDriver to start, you need to add a shortcut link for each instance of MoonDriver.
For example, if you want 2 MoonDrivers running, perform a copy / paste on the shortcut in your Startup folder.
The original shortcut is called MoonDriver, and the pasted one is called "Copy of MoonDriver".
The next time you log into Windows, you will have 2 MoonDrivers running.
Each instance of MoonDriver remembers its own settings: size, position, tinting, etc.
Positioning is simple - with the cursor in the MoonDriver image, press down the left mouse button, and drag MoonDriver anywhere on your desktop.
It is possible to accidentally position MoonDriver off your screen. For example you could set the Moon to a large size, position the Moon at the very edge of the screen, and then resize smaller.
In this case, the Moon is now completely off the screen!
You can 'bring it back' by right-clicking on the MoonDriver icon in the System Tray, and selecting "Reset Position".
If you still don't see MoonDriver, it is possible that you have selected "DayLight Moon", and it is a new moon. In this case, the Moon is invisible. Un-check "DayLight Moon", and the new moon will be visible.
Right-click on MoonDriver, select Resize, and slide the cursor to the right.
You can set the Moon size from 5% to 100%, in 5% steps.
From the MoonDriver menu, select Tinting, then one of the choices:
From the MoonDriver menu, select "Upcoming Phases".
The Upcoming Phases screen will display the next 4 primary phases, and will update automatically as the date changes.
The 'DayLight Moon' option hides the 'dark' portion of the Moon.
This option works best on a sky-blue background:
To view the Moon as it appears from the southern hemisphere, select "Southern Hemisphere" from the MoonDriver menu.
Selecting "Cool Moon Links" from the MoonDriver menu will bring you to MoonDriver.com's Moon Link web page.
We will keep a collection of links to other Moon related web sites that are interesting and informative.
These links will be updated periodically, so please check back!
Each instance of MoonDriver will place a MoonDriver icon
in the system tray.
If you left-click the MoonDriver icon, MoonDriver will appear on top of other open windows.
If you right-click the MoonDriver icon, you can control MoonDriver with its menu:
