DoNext does not need a classical installation with a setup. Just:

  1. download the ZIP file
  2. un-zip the ZIP file - it contains one single file
  3. create shortcuts to the file on the desktop
  4. with a double click you can start DoNext

We recommend you to make a desktop shortcut to the tool. It also makes sense to create a startup link in the Windows® Startup folder.


Use as plugin in Notesbrowser

If you are using our organizer Notesbrowser you should move the tool to the Notesbrowser Plugins folder and use it as a plugin (in Notesbrowser->Configuration->Plugins). Then you can launch DoNext with a right click in Notesbrowser and also it uses the Notesbrowser skins.

This tool is only one single file big. It creates only additional file 'ToDoList.xml' in the same folder to saves all settings and data. No entries are made into the registry.

How to use and change Skins

For Skins the Notesbrowser Skins are used. This means Skins can only be changed if you have installed Notesbrowser. The Skins can be used if DoNext is located in the Notesbrowser Plugins folder. Or you create a skins folder in the folder where DoNext is located, for example: C:/Program Files/DoNext/Skins/Royal

If this "Royal" folder contains the Notesbrowser Skin Royal, it will work and you can select the skin from the menu within DoNext.

It's easiest if you use DoNext.exe in the Notesbrowser plugin path .../Notesbrowser/Plugins/
