1001 PC HINTS AND TIPS FROM PC/COMPUTING is formatted to work under the
included ZVIEW document viewer. ZVIEW organizes the display of a great deal
of information into a structured, outline format, so that you can go right
to the tips you need.


TO INSTALL:

If your PC launches straight into Windows or another program, you'll need
to exit to the DOS prompt.

1. Create a directory on your hard drive called "PCCHINTS". From the DOS C:
prompt, type MD PCCHINTS.

2. Make "PCCHINTS" the active subdirectory. Type CD PCCHINTS.

3. Copy the contents of these disks into the "PCCHINTS" subdirectory. Place
disk 1 into your floppy drive, type COPY A:*.* (COPY B:*.* if appropriate)
and repeat with disk 2.

4. PCCHINTS should contain two .EXE files: 1001TIP1.EXE and 1001TIP2.EXE.
These files contain 1001 Hints and Tips in a compressed format. To
uncompress them, type each filename at the DOS prompt. First type 1001TIP1
and press Enter, then 1001TIP2 and Enter. You should now have two .ZDG
files, four .INI files, and ZVIEW.EXE. At this point, delete 1001TIP1.EXE
and 1001TIP2.EXE from your hard drive.

5. If you have a monochrome or LCD system, type DEL ZVIEW.INI. If you have
a monochrome system, type COPY MONO.INI ZVIEW.INI; for an LCD system, use
COPY LCD.INI ZVIEW.INI. To undo this change, type COPY COLOR.INI ZVIEW.INI.


TO RUN THIS SOFTWARE FROM DOS:

1. Log onto the C: drive. Type C: to do so.

2. Make "PCCHINTS" the active subdirectory. Type CD \PCCHINTS.

3. Type ZVIEW to start the viewer program.

4. Hold down the ALT key and press F to open the ZVIEW File menu. Select
Open. From the next menu, select which set of tips you wish to see.


TO RUN THIS SOFTWARE FROM WINDOWS:

1. Open the Progam Manager application window. Double-click on the icon for
Program Manager to open the window.

2. Open the File Manager. Double-click on the icon for File Manager (the file
cabinet). If this icon is not visible, double-click on the Main group; the
File Manager should be visible within the Main window.

3. Open the C: drive. Click on the C: drive icon at the top of the screen.

4. Select the PCCHINTS directory. Click on the small folder next to
"PCCHINTS" on the left-hand side of the screen.

5. Invoke the ZVIEW.EXE file to start. Double-click on the icon next to
ZVIEW.EXE on the right-hand side of the screen.

6. Continue at Step 4 of "HOW TO RUN THIS SOFTWARE FROM DOS".

  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/
