You can start AMD SimNow™ by launching "SimNow.exe" in your install directory. For
convenience, you can create a desktop shortcut to launch the simulator. When you run the
simulator, you will see the simulator's Main Window as shown in Figure 5-1. It will also
open a console window (shown in Figure 3-15) that is used for text interaction.
