Installing PGT Version 2.0
CAUTION: If you are updating to version two read this carefully:
You should backup your Course.lst and Golfer.lst files on your old
version before installing Version 2.0 of PGT. Do this by logging
onto the disk and directory that contains your old version of PGT
and entering the following:
copy *.lst *.bak
As distributed the files Course.Lst and Golfer.Lst do not exist. If you
run PGT from the distribution disk these files will be created with
no information in them. If you copy them to your drive and directory
containing the old version of PGT your course and golfer files will be
Copy all files on this disk, keeping in mind the notice above, to the
disk on which your old PGT programs reside.
Installing to Fixed disk:
Log onto the directory that has the old PGT version. For example, if
your Fixed(hard) disk is drive C: and the PGT program is installed in
the directory named PGT this is what you should do:
Copy the files from this disk to your PGT directory on drive C: I'll
assume that this disk is in drive A:
Installing on a system with dual floppies:
Put the disk with the old PGT version in Drive B:
Put this disk in drive A:
copy A:*.* b:
New PGT files: pgt.exe, pgt.doc, pgt.hlp, and default.dft will be copied
over the old files.
You will have to reset your program defaults that are found under the
Default Other and Default Names menus. This is necessary because the
added Newest Date feature has changed the length of the Default.dft file.
First time installation:
Installing to Fixed disk:
Make a directory on your Fixed(hard) disk named PGT and copy the files
from the PGT distribution disk. This assumes this disk is in drive a:
and that you are logged onto the root directory of your Fixed(hard) drive.
Installing to Floppies:
Format a floppy disk and put it in the B: drive. Put this disk in the
copy a:*.* b:
