As you will see the documentation for this program is not
well written. A couple of things in particular need to be
spelled out more clearly.

After the program has finished its initial read through
and block verification the message 'press any key to
continue' appears. This would imply (to me at least) that the
program will continue no matter what key is pressed next.
This is not the case, the space bar needs to be pressed to
display the report. If the '/a' (advanced features) switch
has been used then successive presses of the space bar will
bring up the additional pages generated by this feature.

There is no need to un-ARC programs before testing,
Filetrace will even tell you with what program the file has
been arced.

Hope this saves some of you the frustration I felt trying
to get this very interesting program to work.

  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/
