I presumed this involved something simple like editing a text file or running a setup .bat/exe. However most of the files seem to be in some sort of programming code/language which I'm not familiar with.
I amended a file I thought to be the relevant one after making a backup of the original but only made things worse in that now the program will not accept what I know to be the correct password!!
It seems to me that I may have activated some sort of copy protection but I'm not sure really.
Does anybody think they might be able to help? (18GB SCSI HDD free to anyone who can help me solve this!)
Yes but why are you still in the "dark DOS ages" does it really work ?
DOS didn't have any copy protec.
Is this a College Joke Post.It's hard to believe.
what I know to be the correct password!!
