AutoPilot v1.70
Copyright 1990 - Joseph Bigby


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


To install AutoPilot in Qmodem, follow the following steps:

A. Copy all files contained in the APILOT17.ZIP archive to your Qmodem
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 function key slots by following these
simple steps: 1. Hit Alt-J from terminal mode.
2. Type 1.
3. Cursor down to an empty slot and type:
4. Hit F10 and then .

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

A. Hit the appropriate function key (Depending on which slot you placed
APILOT.BAT in.) to load the driver.
B. Make selections from the menus which meet your needs.
Note: If for some reason you wish to abort a transfer hit CTRL-BREAK to return
to Qmodem unless you are in one of the menus. If you reach a menu
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.


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
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 allow for greater
program response time.
v1.70 - Due to technical difficulties, 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:
