20Re: Saving in brother format on floppy disk
- Nov 29, 2004I wasn't able to locate the Infoshape 90.
RadioShack disk drive. You are possibly referring to TPPD and TPPD 2.
This is exactly what John posted in the file section. I also added
several links to TRS100 group that mention details about that drive.
I tried to runa demo of DAK and got a message that program won't run
on DOS nor Windows and something about 16 bits. It is a well
documented problem with windows that I see on occasion using software
designed for DOS and then window'ized.
However, looking at the screenshot examples I must admit that it
sounds sweeter and sweeter to be able to run a Brother knitter under
windows (I am sure that I am the only person in tee world that has
that installation problem and it has nothing to do with DAK being a
fine program). For $450 I would expect DAK to fly right out of the
setup without even needing windows. Dejavu.. that's why we are here.
Questions to a dealer of DAK went unanswered, questinos to DAK are
probably also in a queue.
