A little while ago, there was a patch for 123.EXE listed here that
effectively unprotected the copy-protected disk and allowed hard-disk
to run without the floppy.
I just received the new version of Lotus 123 and retrofitted the patch
(it is a different technique). To unprotect 123.EXE Version 1A,

1. Rename 123.EXE 123.XYZ
2. DEBUG 123.XYZ
3. type U ABA9
4. you should see INT 13 at that address
5. type E ABA9 90 90
6. type W
7. type Q
8. Rename 123.XYZ 123.EXE

That's it. Good Luck.

  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/
