Getting Started

Put DataGater® on your system ...

Download the DataGater DLL GaterWare® SDK Setup Program (it is free), or insert the Installation CD and run Setup.exe.

It will create  a “\DataGater\” folder in your “\Program Files\” directory containing these files: “DataGaterCommon.dll, DataGaterCommon.tlb, and DataGaterBlocks.dll” – which it will register in your Windows registry.

It will also create a “\GaterWare SDK\” folder on your main drive, with a copy of this SDK Developers Manual, Registration materials, and sample code for VB.NET

The GaterWare® SDK setup program will check your system for the required .NET framework and install it if necessary.

The sample programs include the needed references to the DataGater® class libraries in your programming language, but when you begin creating a new application, be sure to set a reference to them in your IDE.
