PROCOMM PLUS for Windows
Version 2.10 UPDATE - UPDATE.TXT

Upgrading PROCOMM PLUS for Windows Version 2.0 to Version 2.1

IMPORTANT: Do not perform this upgrade while running Windows! Be sure to
exit Windows completely and run the UPDATE program from the DOS prompt.

IMPORTANT: If you add program features with the Custom Install option
after you've updated to PROCOMM PLUS for Windows 2.1, note that you must
follow these instructions again to update the new features to version 2.1.
For example, if you didn't install CISMGR during your original 2.0
installation and you update to version 2.1, you must repeat the update
procedure after adding CISMGR. If you originally chose the Express
Install option, you need only update once.

Follow these steps to update an existing installed copy of PROCOMM PLUS for
Windows version 2.0 to version 2.1:

1. From the DOS prompt, type:


and press Enter. UPDATE will attempt to locate three directory pathnames:
your Windows directory, your PROCOMM PLUS directory and your ASPECT
directory. If these directories are not correct, enter the right pathnames.
UPDATE will display status messages and report any errors as it performs
the upgrade.

2. Run Windows and then run PROCOMM PLUS. Under the Help menu, click
on the About PROCOMM PLUS item; if the version reported is 2.1, you have
successfully updated PROCOMM PLUS.

3. You may wish to repeat Step 2 for each of the utility programs included
with PROCOMM PLUS for Windows (the User Window Builder, the Dialog Editor,
the GIF viewer, the Convert program and the Windows ASPECT script

4. Using the Windows WRITE program, review the 21NEW.WRI and 21LIST.WRI in
the PROCOMM PLUS for Windows home directory.

5. After all files have been successfully updated, the UPDATE program
automatically deletes the files included in the archive except READ.ME.
However, you may delete PW210.EXE and any remaining copies of the archive
PW210.RTP, SYSTEM.RTP) to conserve disk space.

  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:
