Setting the Windows PATH environment
You must add the location of the dynamic load libraries (DLLs) to the Windows™ PATH environment variable.

Updating the PureEdgeAPI.ini file
You must create the PureEdgeAPI.ini file if it does not exist. If the file already exists then you must update it to add the location of the new API.

Configuration settings in prefs.config
The API can use a configuration file called prefs.config to set several properties. Normally, you do not need this file because the default settings are adequate for most purposes.

Registering the COM dynamic link library
If you plan to use the COM API, you must register the pe_com.dll file with Windows.
