Version 1.70 was primarily designed to add support for PC Tools Deluxe
Version 6.0. SWAPDT now supports Desktop Macros and Alarms. SWAPSH works
with the new 4DOS 3.0, as well as supporting all the new features of
PCShell Version 6.0.

For the other utilities, the changes were not so obvious. Primarily, we've
added the /P command-line option, which gives you direct control over the
size of the internal paste buffer SWAP?? uses. In addition, memory
requirements for most utilities have been reduced.

Support for EGA/VGA cards has been enhanced. DESQView 2.26 is now fully-
supported. ^C is now passed through to applications that use that

SWAPMM now supports the ^P key for pasting, and functions in the same
fashion that MEMO does (only ONE paste permitted). SWAPMT has minimal
support for MetroKernal 1.0, and enhanced support for macros.

SWAPNG will now correctly change all hotkeys if the defaults are not used.
SWAPSP will now load correctly if an alarm is scheduled to go off during
the loading process.

There were no obvious changes for either SWAPSK and SWAPTN, other than the
general changes mentioned above.


Version 1.52 fixes a number of minor, internal problems with all the
utilities. It also includes support for Version 0.76 of The Norton Guides,
as well as additional support for DESKTOP.EXE files released by Central
Point Software after 7/20/89.

  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:
