i-Handbook Frequently Asked Questions

How do you print the wellbore diagrams? I can't seem to find a print icon or menu anywhere in this program.

There is no print feature in the i-Handbook. However, if you right-click on the wellbore diagram (as well as in most of the i-Handbook pages) you'll be able to copy the page content.

You can then "paste" what you've just copy in any Windows application that accepts pictures like Word, WordPad, Excel, Powerpoint... You can add your own annotation there, add a title, date and finally print from there.

How do you convert the handbook to display in metric?

To display the i-Handbook in metric units just follow the instructions below:

  • On the top right corner of the i-Handbook click on "Options"
  • Then in "Units Management..."
  • Select there "Metric Units"
  • Click on "Done"
  • and then on "Done" again

The i-Handbook will now display data in metric units.

I get the following error: "'Entry Point Not Found.'"

The i-Handbook runs only on Windows 2000 and Windows XP. When run on Windows NT, the following error will show up: "'Entry Point Not Found' ...the procedure entry point AHGetSpecialFolderPathA could not be located in the dynamic link library SHELL#@.dll"

You can un-install the program from the Windows Add/Remove Programs in the Control Panel.

Where are the drift diameters for the tubing and casing?

When you are in the tubing or casing sections, just click on the little page icons (bottom left) to show the additional pages. It contains the Drift Diameters (Drift Dia.).

Is there a version of i-Handbook for Palm or Pocket PC?

Is there a version of i-Handbook in Russian? In Spanish?

Can I install the i-Handbook on different computers? Can I copy the i-Handbook and give it to friends?

Yes you can install the i-Handbook on different computers.

Yes you can copy and give the i-Handbook to friends (but you are not allowed to sell it), however we encourage you to get the full version from http://www.oilfield.slb.com/content/services/resources/software/ihandbook.asp and to be informed when new versions will be released.

I can see just the top-left part of the i-Handbook application.

This is an issue with the demo version of the i-Handbook when display settings use "Large fonts". You can fix the problem by changing your display settings to use small fonts.
