installing protext

has anyone put protext 6.6 onto amiga forever - it is now freeware and supplied as 4 disks that are not adfs (in fact aren't anything as far as i can see).

i am having a lot of problems and have been away from the amiga scene for a long time.

Unpack the zip archive and use the Add Directory button on WinUAE's harddrives page to add the four directories with the following volume names:

Program Disk -> Protext6-Program
Printer Driver Disk -> Protext6-Printers
Dictionay Disk -> Protext6-Dictionary
Thesaurus Disk -> Protext6-Thesaurus

Then start WinUAE and use the Install_Protext icon from the Protext6-Program disk.

Alternatively you can make four ADFs, format them with the above volume names and copy the contents of each directory to the respective ADF.

Thanks - that sounds like a plan - any idea if it will work on Forever Plus using the workbench 3.1 option ?

After all these years there is still nothing to touch protext for certain tasks and command mode / stored commands are stil hugely useful tools.

AFAIK AF is still built on WinUAE. Last time I tried the Player (I really don't like it), I could press F12 to bring up the WinUAE config window.
