=================================================PROPROMPT VERSION 1.16 PAGE 3

INTRODUCTION
------------

The purpose of this program is to be able to use DOS's PROMPT command.

The prompt is what you see right before the cursor normally in DOS. Your
prompt may look like one of the following now:
C>
C:\>

This program will allow you to customize your prompt with colors,
the current time, current date and more!








=================================================PROPROMPT VERSION 1.16 PAGE 4

INSTALLATION
------------


This program requires that ANSI.SYS be active on your computer. This program
comes with DOS. If you already have ANSI.SYS in your CONFIG.SYS file there is
no need to add it again. To install this program, add a line to your
CONFIG.SYS file (which is usually in your root directory).
Enter the following commands:
COPY CONFIG.SYS+CON
DEVICE=C:\DOS\ANSI.SYS
^Z
If your DOS files aren't in your C:\DOS directory, replace C:\DOS with the
directory your DOS is in.







=================================================PROPROMPT VERSION 1.16 PAGE 5


PROGRAM USAGE
-------------

To load the ProPrompt program, at the DOS prompt type:
PRO116.EXE

You will then be prompted for the next item to put in your prompt. You have
8 options. Selections 1-7 are special options such as current date or
current DOS directory. Selection 8 will allow you to enter text.

When you pick most items, you will be prompted for the color of the item.
You will have selections A-H in the unregistered version. Hit Q to use
the color used on last item.

To exit to DOS, hit Q. When you return to DOS, your prompt will not be
installed. To install the prompt, type PRMPT at the DOS prompt, ex:
PRMPT



=================================================PROPROMPT VERSION 1.16 PAGE 6

COMMON PROBLEMS
---------------

Some common problems are:

I finished the prompt but now I can't get it to display
Solution: You have to type PRMPT immediately after you exit ProPrompt

I get the prompt but see strange letters/characters.
Solution: ANSI.SYS isn't installed. Refer to your DOS manual for installation
of ANSI.SYS.

ProPrompt says "Invalid Selection" at the Build Screen.
Solution: Read the menu of choices (1-8 and Q) listed at the top of the screen
and pick a listed selection.

ProPrompt sends me back to DOS in the middle of my prompt.
Solution: Your prompt was too big. Make a smaller prompt next time.

When I try to install the prompt, DOS says "Out of environment Space"
Solution: Your prompt is too big and/or you don't have enough ram memory. Try
making a smaller prompt.
=================================================PROPROMPT VERSION 1.16 PAGE 7

ADVANCED FEATURES
-----------------
As of version 1.16, ProPrompt will now update your AUTOEXEC.BAT file upon
request! When you exit ProPrompt, simply say that you want to update
your AUTOEXEC.BAT file and the prompt you've made will be loaded into
memory every time you turn on the computer.
