At this stage it is assumed you have read the Installation Section and in fact have installed the 2 floppy discs.
If not see pages 24 to 27 in the User Guide Manual.

Open Kalmaker by typing (in Bold text Shown) at the DOS prompt C:\WINDOWS> CD\KAL3 and enter, then at   C:\KAL type KAL3 and enter.( You need the dongle plugged into your LTP 1 printer port before you can open Kalmaker)
You don't have to be connected or linked to an ECM to at this stage. This is called working offline.
When Kalmaker opens the
Disclaimer is shown. Please take note!. Click Enter or Left Click to enter.
Next, if your mouse is working, move cursor to Buffer 1, or, press key 1, then select Read. (
Note You can work without a mouse but it is recommended to install a DOS mouse driver.) A smaller screen will drop down showing the Path List. This is where you go to look at existing calibrations. What you should see written here are the words TYPE IT and below that the words C:\KAL3\BIN\*.* This is the path to (and is abbreviated for) the Kalmaker Binaries which means this is where all the factory Holden Calibrations are stored. If you double click on \KAL3\ BIN it will open and you can scroll down through them and select which calibration you want to look at. (refer to manual for code applications)

At this stage lets go back to the Path List where you will see \KAL3\BIN\ . Underneath this line is where we will create the path to where we shall store calibrations that we will create and save to later. See Saving a Calibration.
In the next step we will create a Folder where you will save your new calibrations.
Setup, then select Environment, the following screen will appear……...

This is what you should see with the exception of \kal3\holden;\kal3\srams; which I've added to the bottom 3 paths.
In this example I have created 2 extra paths (folders) one for storing calibrations that I have modified for Holdens and the other for storing my SRAM cals. You can name yours to suit yourself, e.g. substitute HOLDEN for JAP or V6 etc.
It is recommended to keep names short, and also keep categorized. By this I mean don't store say Holden and Chev calibrations or V6 and V8 cals in the same file. Why I suggest this is for example, a Chev wont run on a Holden calibration or a V6 wont run on a V8 calibration, and as your list of calibrations grow it is easier to keep track of. This is helpful when starting a new calibration with a similar spec engine you have previously calibrated.
Pay particular attention to the colons, semi colons and backslashes when copying this screen shot.
Note: there are too many variables for this to have been included in the installation.
Next to finish this task, select the Save button and OK then Quit Kalmaker and create the files required in either  DOS or exit from DOS and open your Window Explorer and create the Folders there.

NOTE: You can also do this in DOS if you wish. It's quicker and easier. To do this, at the C:\KAL3> type :-
MD HOLDEN. ( The MD stands for Make Directory) That's all you have to do.
Now at the C:\Kal3 prompt , type Kal3 to re-enter Kalmaker.
