Enclosed on this diskette is the latest release of Zephyr 4.0. Pursuant to
the shareware distribution license agreement below, it can be distributed as
received on a high-density diskette, or it can be copied to 3-360K floppies.

360K FLOPPY DISTRIBUTION

To distribute Zephyr 4.0 on 360K floppies, copy the files on this distribution
diskette to three floppies using ONLY the files shown below:

Diskette 1 - INSTALL.BAT, INSTALL.OVL, ZEPHYR4.001, VENDOR.DOC
Diskette 2 - ZEPHYR4.002
Diskette 3 - ZEPHYR4.003

WARNING: Failure to group the files as shown above will most probably result
in a failed install since the installation software must put a very large EXE
file back together again BEFORE the self-extracting install will function!!!

If you have special distributor files, they should be added to Disk 1 only!!!
The other two diskettes will be completely full and cannot be changed. The
end-user should be advised to type A:INSTALL after inserting Disk 1 in A:.

BBS .ZIP FORMAT DISTRIBUTION

Zephyr 4.0 can also be distributed in .ZIP format for use on a BBS. If you
distribute the software in .ZIP format, please add the enclosed FILE_ID.DIZ &
UNZIP.DOC then ZIP the files using the file groupings noted above. Please
note that FILE_ID.DIZ and UNZIP.DOC should be added to EACH of the 3 ZIP files.
Name the ZIP files ZEPHYR4A.ZIP, ZEPHYR4B.ZIP, and ZEPHYR4C.ZIP. If file names
are limited to six characters, please use: ZEP4A, ZEP4B, and ZEP4C.

display. DOS 2.1 or higher (MS-DOS 5.0 or expanded memory manager recommended).

BRIEF PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

FoxPro 2-compatible data base management system for non-programmers.

DETAILED PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Zephyr 4 is a fully relational, FoxPro 2 compatible data base management system
for non-programmers. It can be loaded as a 20K TSR pop-up. Up to 25 data bases
can be manipulated simultaneously with up to 255 indexes. Performance is up to
1000 times that of dBASE IV on complex retrievals from large data bases yet the
software can be learned in only a few minutes.

Using a Mac-like interface, sophisticated data base applications can be designed
even by novices in minutes rather than months. Report, label, list, and form
letter generators are included with the software. PCX graphics fields can be
included in any standard FoxPro data base.

Zephyr is the perfect data base tool for both first-time and experienced data
base users.

  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/
