Preparing your Computer

 

To have a place for RhythmBee material:

Create a new folder on your desktop and label it “RhythmBee.”

Before you download the RhythmBee material, get the latest Flash Player Projector. 

  1. Go to http://www.adobe.com/support/flashplayer/downloads.html

  2. Right click on the Flash Player Projector - NOT THE FLASH PLAYER - for your operating system and "Save Link as . . . " to put the Flash Player Projector in your RhythmBee Folder.

  3. Select “Run” when the box asks you if you really want to do this.

  4. The proper installation of the Flash Player Projector results in a blank white screen that seems to mean nothing.  We don't know why, but that is the indicator that the process is complete. 

To improve your download time:

Firefox Browser:

The Firefox browser is the only one with a useful download manager.  If you find another browser with such help, please let me know about it.

  1. Get a free Firefox browser at http://www.mozilla-firefox.todownload.com/
  2. Go to www.downthemall.net and click on “Install DownThemAll Now.” (Install includes a reboot of Firefox - no a reboot of your computer.)

Accessing Your Subscription

In Firefox:

  1. Go to www.rhythmbee.com and click on the “Log-in” link in the upper right.
  2. Enter your email address and password then click on Log-in.

Downloading RhythmBee Material to your Computer

After logging in (see Accessing Your Subscription), click on a category title to see the files. PLEASE NOTE THAT THE RHYTHM CATEGORY HAS MULTIPLE PAGES.

With a Firefox Browser:

  1. Right click on a blank space on the browser window.
  2. Select “DownThemAll.”
  3. In the DownThemAll window, direct DownThemAll to “Save the files in“ the RhythmBee folder on your desktop. You can browse for that folder by clicking on the manilla folder near that field.
  4. Go to the bottom "filter" field (“Fast Filter”)
  5. Enter swf in that field.
  6. Select the "Disable other filters" option at the end of that field.
  7. Click on "Start" and take a break, unless your OCD, in which case I won’t make suggestions because your wouldn’t listen anyway.
  8. Repeat steps 1-7 for each page of your instructional files. PLEASE NOTE THAT SOME CATEGORIES HAVE MULTIPLE PAGES.

Running the RhythmBee Files

With the files downloaded, your computer may automatically find the “Flash Player” that you installed under “Preparing your Computer.” You will know that it has found Flash Player if the files have the Flash Icon beside them and run independent of a browser. If not:

  1. Right click (control click) on any RB file in your RhythmBee folder.
  2. Select “Open with . . .“
  3. Select Flash Player and make it the default for files of this type. (The word Projector does not appear at this point.) If that is done, see Step 5 below. If not, go to Step 4.
  4. After selecting "Open with . . " browse to find Flash Player.  (Try the Downloads or Programs files on your hard drive.)  Make Flash Player the default program for that type of file. You may need to search your hard drive for “Flash Player" or "FlashPlayer.”  On a Windows platform, that search is begun by clicking on the Start button.  The search field will appear directly above that button.
  5. You will know that you have succeeded when all of the RB files have the Flash icon beside them (a white square with a red F in it).

If everything has been accomplished correctly, every file of your subscription will be in your desktop RhythmBee folder and each file will have the Flash Player Icon (white background with a red F in it) beside it. You will be able to go there and open any RB file with a click (or double click), and the program will not use a browser at all.

Please call if there any problems that we can help you solve. Our record is 100% at getting our program to work on Windows and Mac systems. We will work hard to maintain that record.
