I need help on how to install the floppy disk version of Advantage Plus program disk. Every time I tried to install the floppy disk it read up to 2 then stop for installing, how do I fix this problem so I can used this system. Please email me steps on how to fix this problem
Do NOT run the INSTALL program that is available on the floppy disk. It is not compatable with WINDOZE.
Here's what you have to do:
Step 1: Open Notepad
Step 2: Type in the lines below just as you see them
Step 3: Save this Notepad file to your root directory (C:\>), name it GAIL.bat
Step 4: Open My Computer (XP System) or Windows Explorer (Older WIN System) and put the Gail Howard disk in the A:\ drive.
Step 5: Select your C:\ Drive (Local Drive)
Step 6: Look under File and Folder tasks on the LEFT and click on Make A New Folder
Step 7: Name the new folder GAIL (Just type in GAIL) and press ENTER
Step 8: Click the BACK button (upper left)
Step 9: Select your floppy drive (A:\)
Step 10: Copy ALL the files on the floppy disk to C:\>GAIL
Step 11: Put in any other Gail Howard Disk and repeat Step 10
Step 12: Remove all floppy disks from the A:\ drive
Step 13: On your Desktop click on START then navigate to ALL Programs --> Accessories --> Command Prompt (it will be MSDOS Prompt on an older WINDOZE system) then click.
Step 14: When the small black window opens up type CD\ then type GAIL
If you have done everything correctly your program will be running in the Command Prompt (DOS) window.
