Click here to download and install a demo version of GEO. The installed program resides on the computer after it exists, so you can re-launch GEO through Windows' Start button. Use Windows' Control Panel >> Add or Remove Programs to uninstall the program.
When the program runs, it presents a Login dialog box with a Register button. Depress Register, and register yourself under a fictitious name to protect your privacy. If you repeat the run, select Login, and enter only your registered nickname and password. After registration, you may do anything you like to see how the program functions. For information about administrative features, contact me.
If the installation fails or if you prefer not to install the demo version, click here to download and run the demo version without installing it. Respond positively to all prompts. Select Save only if the other options are unavailable. In this case, you will have to save the program file first, and then launch it from where you saved it in a second step. After exiting the program, delete the program to eliminate clutter.
When the program runs, you will see a background WinZip Self-Extractor window that you should not cancel. The window is the visible element of a janitorial program that cleans up after the GEO program exits. The clean up causes Windows 7 to prompt you for action. Cancel or X the prompt.
