Greene GeoData DVD Users
To update your Greene GeoData DVD layers, download the zip file for the layer you wish to update and save it to your computer (saving on the desktop is often easiest). Once the zip file has downloaded, open the zip file and extract or copy all the files to your "Greene" folder used by ArcReader. (This is usually on your desktop, but may be on the C: drive at the root level in some older installations, accessed by selecting "My Computer" and then "C:").
