Swapper is a device driver that will save and restore interrupt vectors.
I use this program to disconnect the Laplink3 device driver from the keyboard
service interrupt. To use swapper, put the line DEVICE=Swapper.sys in your
config.sys file. When swapper is loaded a snapshot is made of the interrupt
vectors, then at any time you can cause any of those vectors to be
restored. This will allow you to temporarily deactivate a tsr without
removing it from memory. To set an interrupt vector to its bootup status
type INTSAVE # [#[#[#...]]] where # is the vector number(s) to save. To
reactivate those vectors type INTREST # [#[#[#...]]].

  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/
