    Hiya,

    Just wondering where I can obtain PCBoard from? - I still have my purple
    disks somewhere but haven't a clue what version it was.

    I see people are running 15.3 or 15.4 mainly, what's the difference between those versions?

    Hi James,

    Just wondering where I can obtain PCBoard from? - I still have my
    purple disks somewhere but haven't a clue what version it was.

    I see people are running 15.3 or 15.4 mainly, what's the difference
    between those versions?

    They are simply upgrades to v15.22, correcting and adding some code.
    For some reason I never upgraded to v15.3 and have only replaced some
    files in v15.22 with newer ones from v15.4beta.

    I also have the instructions from David Terry on how to remove the limit
    of the number of days, (date), that the v15.4 could be tested.

    The above change is made to the PCBOARD?.EXE.

    Also the instructions for the Y2K change needed to make PCB functional
    after the millenium change and the modifications to the event weekdays
    to conform with the actual weekday.

    This change has to be made to the PCBSETUP.EXE file.

    Both changes are made by editing the hex code of the file in question.


    Have a nice day,

    Holger
