AutoPilot v1.70
Copyright 1990 - Joseph Bigby

FILES NEEDED FOR THIS PROGRAM:

Super8k: Version 4.31 or greater.
Lynx: Version 2.0 or greater.
Zmodem: Any version, registered or unregistered.
Cmodem: Version 1.10I.
Bimodem: Version 1.12 or greater.
Megalink: Version 1.60 or greater.

PROGRAM SETUP AND OPERATION:

To install AutoPilot in Procomm Plus, follow the following steps:

A. Copy all files contained in the APILOT17.ZIP archive to your Procomm
directory.
B. Check to make sure you have all of the files listed under "FILES NEEDED
FOR THIS PROGRAM" If not, do not expect all of the protocols to function.
C. Type INIT at the dos prompt in your communications directory and answer
all of the questions correctly. When the program asks for a default path
for downloads and/or uploads be sure to include a slash at the end of the
pathname. Ex. C:\COMM\ not C:\COMM
Note: If you are currently using an unregistered copy of DSZ, answer NO to
the question that refers to it when in INIT.EXE. Afterwards, when you
are prompted to enter pathnames for Zmodem or Ymodem-G *ONLY* do *NOT*
include a slash at the end of the pathname. Ex. C:\COMM not C:\COMM\
D. Add APILOT.BAT to one of your empty user hot key slots by following these
simple steps: 1. Go to your Procomm directory and type INIT at the DOS
prompt.
2. Cursor down the list of options until File/Pathname options
is highlighted and press
3. Place APILOT.BAT in one of the empty user hot key slots.

This completes your installation. Whenever you wish to use one of the
protocols selectable from the driver follow these steps:

A. Hit ALT J or ALT U (Depending on which slot you placed APILOT.BAT in.) to
load the driver.
B. Make selections from the menus which meet your needs by pressing the
specified key for the protocol, baud rate, or transfer method you wish
to use.
Note: If for some reason you wish to abort a transfer hit CTRL-BREAK to return
to Procomm unless you are in one of the menus. If so, and wish to abort a
transfer, just hit your key. Jmodem, Super8k, and Super8k-G are
available from the single transfer menu since their single transfer modes
operate differently than their batch modes. Although certain protocols are
not listed in the single section, single files can be transferred by
selecting these protocols from the batch menu. Also, when uploading or
downloading files be sure to specify their full pathname unless you
specified a default upload and/or download pathname in INIT.

PROGRAM HISTORY:

v1.00 - First official release.
v1.10 - Zmodem/Lynx file recovery features are added.
v1.20 - Ymodem-G is added. Documentation is updated regarding installation.
v1.30 - Super8k-G, Bimodem and the ability to specify a default upload directory
are added. A few cosmetic changes are made to the menus. A rarely
noticed bug is corrected involving the use of ESC to exit the program.
Megalink is removed, Zmodem bug fixed.
v1.40 - A default download directory is no longer mandatory, but is still an
option.
v1.50 - Mono/Text adapters are now fully supported.
v1.60 - A totally new menu system is introduced. Megalink is returned to the
list of protocols. Source code enhancements should provide greater
program response time.
v1.70 - Due to technical difficulties with the protocol, AutoPilot now supports
only COM1 when used with Cmodem. Cmodem Send bug fixed. Minor changes in
the user interface have been made.

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read: http://www.os2museum.com/wp/mtswslnk/
