The first step in Configuring Newsbin is to check the Options Menu to dictate the folder in which messages will be Downloaded
Step 1 – Download Newbin Pro from here
Step 2 – Once you have Downloaded the program to your computer, double click on the file to begin the install process.
Note: Be sure to close all existing programs before continuing the install.
Step 3 – Click on “Next” to continue
Step 4 – Click “Agree”
Step 5 – Pick the shortcuts that you would like Newsbin to make and press “Next”
Step 6 – This will automatically create the directory in your Program Files folder to install. Unless you wish to install in a different directory (not recommended), press “Next” to continue.
Step 7 – Press “Next” again to allow Newsbin to create the folder for Data Files. The program will then install all necessary files.
Step 8 – Enter the Newsdemon username and password. The server info is pre-populated but we’re including here just in case

Step 9 – Set the number of days for the initial downloading of posts. 7 is a good number to start
Step 10 – All done! The next window will allow you to “Launch Newsbin on Exit” of the install. Be sure that the checkbox is clicked.
