- For about 2 weeks I have been tryingto get the "dial" clip of PIM1
to work with W2K.
I would like to thank Glenn McCauley (the author of the clip for this
sorry for the delay getting back. You are correct, the dialer
routine was written for win98. The dialer in Win2k and XP is messy
and not nearly as swift but it can be adapted. [This is what took
the time. I had to sit down and find out what win2k did.]
You will have to go to the drive which has Windows and do a search
for "dialer.exe". Copy down the path and name. Look in my clip for
the dial routine. [zdial?] Use ctrl+shift+e to edit it. Look for
the section that actually calls up the dialer. [In the version I
have at the moment it is called :MAKECALL [see below] Copy the lines
below and replace what is in the original right down to the end of
the phone clip. It worked for me.
Let me know if you have problems.
You might also like to know that I have completely rewritten this
several times - using completely different structures. I just
haven't gotten around to posting any to the site.
One keeps all the data in a free, fast, dialer program called
pab.exe. Notetab goes there to get addresses, dial, send faxes etc
You can still use the correspondence part of notetab, the calendar,
and create emails in it. If you have any interest in that, let me
