Jeanie wrote about the need to capture the setup sequence from one
computer to another, where it can be save for inclusion in a manual.
Jeroen answered that SnagIt/32 includes dual monitor support under
Windows 98, which is true, but is not useful in Jeanie's situation. The
computer running setup needs to be the one controlling the monitor
the screens are captured *from*, and that means SnagIt and Win98
cannot be in control of it at the same time.

This is indeed a unique situation. As Jeanie pointed out, the system
and prompts being captured cannot also support the OS and screen
cap programs installed beforehand. She wondered if a split cable
between the two monitors would work. Without an EE degree, I
cannot answer that question. I can tell you what I would do. I would
forget the wiring that is not likely to work and use a good digital
camera to capture pictures from the monitor as the sequence
happens. Then I would download those pics to a computer with
all of the tools needed to manipulate these images, including SnagIt
which has an excellent catalog tool to manage the them.
