Documentation for the AscToRTF conversion utility
The latest version of these files is available online at http://www.jafsoft.com/doco/docindex.html
The shareware version of AscToRTF is made available over the web from AscToRTF download zip file. Once you register you can download the full version (no nags, no limits), and are entitled to free upgrades for an arbitrary (equals "my decision is final") period of time. So far I've never requested payment for any updates of AscToRTF over the last 2-3 years.
Installation will vary according to the type of install kit you've downloaded, but in each case you first download the .ZIP file appropriate to your system and unzip.

Installing the Windows GUI versionOpenVMS version of AscToRTF
Installing the console version
The current version of the software makes updates to your Registry. See the Install notes that come with the software for a description of the registry settings used.
The standard installations use InnoSetup to offer install and uninstall options. To use this version, unzip the file and then run the Setup program. This will move the files to a directory, and create all icons etc.
Once installed, InnoSetup will also offer an uninstall option. You can access this via Control Panel | Add/remove software.
The console version simply comes in a .zip file. The documentation is not included as this is the same as the Windows version.
Simply unzip the console version to the folder of your choice.
Sorry. No VMS distribution is planned at this time as RTF is not exactly a VMS-friendly file format.
That said, the software - like AscToHTM - is largely developed under VMS, so if there is enough interest this may change. Email info<at>jafsoft.com if you're interested (replace the "<at>" by "@").
