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

The only files required to run the Point & Shoot Home Manager are:

PASH.EXE The Point & Shoot Home Manager Program. This
file must reside on a bootable disk for floppy systems,
or it must be available in the current directory or in
the PATH if used on a hard disk.

*.DBD These are the database definition files used
with the databases in the Point & Shoot Home Manager.
These files must be available on the data disk for floppy
systems, or in the current directory if used on a hard
disk.


Whether using a hard disk or dual floppy disk system, you MUST
use a CONFIG.SYS file that contains the following line:

FILES = 20



DUAL FLOPPY DISK SYSTEMS
------------------------

1) Copy PASH.EXE from the Point & Shoot Home Manager distribution
disk to a bootable floppy disk.

2) Copy all of the "DBD" files from the Point & Shoot Home Manager
distribution disk to a blank data disk.

3) Place the new bootable disk in drive A: and the data disk in
drive B:, switch to drive B: and invoke the Point & Shoot
Home Manager from drive A:

A> B:
B> A:PASH

4) The Point & Shoot Home Manager should run. The SETUP command
should be used immediately to set the program parameters.


HARD DISK INSTALLATION
----------------------

If running the Point & Shoot Hard Disk Manager:

1) Use the FILE COPY command to copy PASH.EXE to the \P&S
directory.

2) Use the TREE MAKE command to create a directory to hold
the Point & Shoot Home Manager data and use the FILE COPY
command to copy all files with the ".DBD" extension to the
new data directory.

3) Use the MENU ADD command to add the PASH command to the
user-defined menus. Remember to select the data directory
as the directory path.

4) The SETUP command should be used immediately to set the
program parameters.



If not running the Point & Shoot Home Manager:

1) Create a new subdirectory on the hard disk for the Point &
Shoot Home Manager program and data files.

2) Copy all the files on the distribution disk to the newly
created directory.

3) The Point & Shoot Home Manager program may now be run
from the new directory by changing to that directory and
entering the following command:

PASH

4) To run the Point & Shoot Home Manager from a different
directory (and to store the data files in a different
directory also) create a separate directory to hold the
Point & Shoot Home Manager data files, copy the files with
".DBD" extension to the new directory, and add the new
directory to the PATH command in AUTOEXEC.BAT. The Point &
Shoot Home Manager may now be executed from the data
directory by making that directory the default and entering
the PASH command.

5) The SETUP command should be used immediately to set the
program parameters.





PRINTING THE DOCUMENTATION
--------------------------

To print the documentation, type the following from the DOS
prompt:

COPY PASHDOC.TXT PRN:

Another option to print the documentation is to use the File
Print command found in the Point & Shoot Hard Disk Manager.

  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/
