Eventus 8 User’s Guide – Similar to Above But Not Printable from the Web
Standard Edition 2.1

Publicly readable, non-printable version

Eventus 9 for Windows includes a printable copy of the documentation that is installed on your PC along with the software. We recommend running Check for Eventus 9 Update at least once a month to keep both the software and the documentation up to date. For a limited time, authorized users of Eventus 8 for Windows also can install the latest edition of the printable User’s Guide by selecting Check for Eventus 8 Update from the Start menu folder for Eventus. (In a few cases the menu item will read True Update instead of Check for….)
