Christmas Elf Help


System requirements

     Christmas Elf will run under Windows XP, Vista, 7 and 8 (x86). Including both 32-bit and 64-bit versions. There are no other components or additional files required.
     In general, using the default settings, the program should work on all modern (and not so modern) computers, including slow.
     The most demanding part for computing power is Snow. Therefore, on not fast computers before running applications demanding in terms of computer resources, such as games, it is recommended to disable the snow (Settings > Snow > Enable). The main snow parameter of influence on the CPU usage is Density. The greater the density, the greater the load on a processor. Therefore, on computers with low productivity, it is recommended to use this setting very carefully.
     Other components of the program, including lights and garlands, should not have any significant impact on the CPU load.


Installing and uninstalling Christmas Elf

     To install the application, run the setup file and follow the wizard. If you are upgrading to a newer or full licensed version, uninstall your current version prior to installing the new version.
     To uninstall Christmas Elf, open Programs and Features, select the program from the list and then click Uninstall. Before uninstalling, if the program is running, it needs to close. To close the program, right-click on the icon in the notification area (near the clock in the lower-right corner of your screen) and select Exit Christmas Elf.


Settings

     To open the program settings window, right-click on the icon in the notification area (near the clock in the lower-right corner of your screen) and select Settings, or double-click the left mouse button on the same icon.
     The Wind setting on the Snow tab sets the frequency of occurrence of the wind affecting the snowflakes trajectories. At the maximum setting value the wind blows constantly, at the minimum the wind does not appear at all.
     The Speed setting on the Snow tab is designed for very rare cases. Most users will not need it.
     If the snow is enabled, the Density setting on the Snow tab can significantly influence on the CPU load. The greater the density, the greater the load on a processor. Therefore, on computers with low productivity, it is recommended to use this setting very carefully. Also, on not fast computers before running applications demanding in terms of computer resources, such as games, it is recommended to disable the snow (Settings > Snow > Enable).
