  • Installing PBDOS 3.5

    This might sound like a silly question but the last time I
    installed PBDOS 3.5 was about 4 years ago on a win95 machine.

    I have installed it on a legacy box I have that runs dos 6.22
    and while the editor, compiler and what looks like all of the
    binaries have installed OK, I don't get any examples or help
    files installed with it and if I press F1 in the editor, it says
    it cannot find the help file.

    Does anyone have any idea how to get this stuff installed on a DOS
    machine. I had a look at the other disks that install the PDF
    reader but I cannot run them on the DOS machine.

    Steve,

    I checked my 3.5 installation disk, and according to the readme.doc
    file, all of the sample application as well as the compiler are compressed.
    During the installation procedure, they should be extracted. The
    samples will be placed into a directory called C:\PB35\EXAMPLE.

      The PBINST utility will let you set up paths and other default values.

        As a true confession of stupidity, I tried unzipping the disk I
        had manually and still could not get it going properly and then
        I made the great breakthrough, I bothered to have a good look at
        the disk I was trying to do the install from and it was the
        upgrade that was sent in the post a few years ago so I ratted
        through my floppies and found the original install disk which
        installed perfectly, ran the upgrade and it now all works properly.

        I guess this is a variation of RTFM.
