Telix Copyright (C) 1986-1994 by deltaComm Development, Inc.

October 14th, 1994 --

In line with new deltaComm policy, minor updates, such as those from
Telix for Windows 1.00b to Telix for Windows 1.01a, will no longer be
charged for. This patch file has been released to take your shareware
copy of Telix for Windows and convert it to an un-registered v1.01a.

To apply this patch, please follow the directions below precisely:

1) Place the files PATCH.EXE and PATCH.RTP in the same directory that
you keep TELIX.EXE and APROW.DLL in. Exit Windows. This patch
program MUST be run when Windows is not loaded.

2) Run the PATCH.EXE program. Your screen will look somewhat like the
following, but may differ depending on the revision of Telix you
are patching (the patch program may patch more files than are
shown in this example) :

PATCH Version 2.01 - .RTPatch(R) Software Update System
(C) Copyright Pocket Soft, Inc., 1991-1994. All Rights Reserved.
< Pocket Soft, Inc. (713) 460-5600 >

3) The resultant copy of TELIX.EXE will be the latest release, and
may be immediately used.

4) Some sections of Telix for Windows may have had user modifications
made to them, notably the Host Mode and the Keyboard Definition
files. Because we did not want to overwrite any modifications
you might have made, the patch program will NOT automatically
update these files, though they HAVE been corrected in some cases.

A complete set of *.KBD keyboard macros and terminal emulation
keyboard sequences can be found in the included file KBDFILES.ZIP.

A newer, updated host mode that more closely resembles the
documentation may be found in the included file WINHOST.ZIP.


Q: I get the following error message when applying the patch:

error ept0036: Original file not found. However, a file of the
same name was found. No update done since file
checksums do not match.

A: PATCH was unable to locate an exact match for the original file
to be updated.

This message may also be caused by several situations: A TSR
could be interfering with your system and its ability to read
the original file from disk.

Programs known to cause PATCH.EXE to generate this error are
Stacker and DoubleSpace, some disk caches, some CD-ROM drivers,
and some anti-viral software. Anything loaded in your CONFIG.SYS
and AUTOEXEC.BAT can potentially cause this error. Each can cause
the checksum of the file you have to differ from the checksum of
the file we used to build the patch.

You may have also forgotten to exit Windows before running PATCH.

Please try to remove these items from memory if PATCH gives you
this error, and then start over at step 2. The best way to do
this is to boot from a bootable floppy drive that has NO

If all the above steps fail, please upload your TELIX.EXE file
to deltaComm Online at 919-481-9399 and we will look into the
possibility of adding support to the patch for your revision.

  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:
