|Installation of Visual Spec|
|This version is a major release - it will completely re-install Vspec, even if you previously installed older version. Open and run VSpec as admin if you encounter dll registration issues.|
Make sure you run the installation with administrator rights, and run Vspec.exe as admin as well. If you see some ocx or dll reported as missing or unregistred, try to run Vspec.exe as admin the first time. To do this, right click on the icon, do not select "open" but "run as admin" in the context menu.
