I've just bought a license for Wordfast Pro, and they suggest making a backup copy of the software onto CD, as if it is lost it may not be replaced. Can anyone give me simple instructions how to do this? I don't know what file to copy for a start....

First of all be sure that you know what is "folder". Then try to find your folder with Wordfast Pro (probably C:\Program Files\Wordfast). Then start your CD-ROm burning software (usually Nero). Then select all files within Wordfast folder and copy them to the CD-R or CD-RW. That is all. You can add there also installation file and license file (*.lic). Do you understand? If not - then write me and I try to help you in every detail that I know, which are unknown to you...

just burn it onto a cd.

it is a good practice to save all the Wf relevant emails, copy of the lic file, etc, into the folder where you hold the downloaded application; so you can burn them all onto a permanent cd.
