FAQ: What does Pathways do and how do I run it?

What it does: Pathways is a tool that supports a comprehensive planning process, including goal setting, strategy development, managing of time (time budgeting, appointment scheduling, and to-do list), managing of money (financial planning, budgeting, and tracking of revenue and expenses), etc. It can be used in a very simplistic manner (for only a few of its capabilities) or as a sophisticated planning tool.

What it runs on: The software runs on any personal computer (PC) with an Intel or compatible processor and any version of Microsoft Windows from Windows 95 (from 1995) through Windows 8 (current release for 2013). Note that this does NOT include Windows 8 RT; Windows RT is designed for tablet computers that do not have Intel-compatible processors, and therefore Pathways will not run on RT.
