When Estimate Works™ launches, Microsoft Word 2000/2003 performs a macro virus scan. It will be indicated on the status bar at the bottom when the virus scan is running. The toolbar will not load until the macro virus scan has been completed.
When you first run Estimate Works™, you may be presented with "Security Warning" window. This will enable DevWave Software Inc. to be added as a trusted source so that you can continue to run with your security settings on 'high'. To view our certificate, click on the 'Details' button on the window.
To add DevWave Software Inc. as a trusted source, check the 'Always trust macros from this source.' check box and click on the 'Enable Macros' button.
