' Chinese Checkers Shareware Installation Script
' Copyright 1992, ImagiSOFT, Inc.
' November 1, 1992

' Note: This installation script is written for THE FINISHING TOUCH, a
' professional installation program which is also an ImagiSOFT
' product. It is distributed with Chinese Checkers to make installation
' easier -- especially for disk vendors. Disk vendors may want to
' change the first window to their name instead of ImagiSOFT's name.

' This script does not unpack compressed files which is a
' major feature of the program. For more information about
' THE FINISHING TOUCH, call ImagiSOFT at (505) 275-1920.

' You can download the shareware version from Software Creations BBS:
' (508) 368-7036 2400 - 9600 Baud, N, 8, 1 (33 lines)
' Download the file FINISH22.ZIP.

  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/
