The MYM DOS program is installed on the old computer and runs fine. I am not running it from the floppies. I can retrieve my data from the old computer and put it in a file on the newer computer but I have to have the MYM program up and running to access it. I tried copying the entire contents of the MYM program from the old computer to the new one but it wouldn't run. Thanks.
Problem #1--(I hope this is not too long for the forum)
I have an old MYM 10 dos program that I want to install on my XP media center computer. The MYM dos program is on 3 floppies. I really cherish this program plus have a lot of data on it. This program has a wonderful old address book and alert system that no other program has duplicated yet. It is so simple to operate. I have but cannot find my old MYM windows version anywhere in my junk pile. So i must ask about MYM 10 DOS.
This program has been on a lot of my old computers. I kept it running on an old computer that has crashed and the old computer is not worth trying to restore. I ran mym programs on dos computers and later on wimdows 3.1 etc thru windows 95 and ME. I never could get it installed on XP as to where it would come up in a window that I could minimize or enlarge. I could only open the program or close it. So I kept it on the old box and that was about all that I ran on the old box. Now the old box is no longer operative. So suggestions and some direction would be appreciated.
The computer I want to install the program on does not have a floppy drive. It has a cd/dvd disk reader-writer. I have access to another computer with xp that has a floppy and a cd writer. Do you think I could copy each disk to the xp computer with the floppy and then copy each floppy to it's own separate cd. (copying #1 floppy disk to #1 cd. Floppy Disk #2 to #2 cd, floppy disk #3 to #3cd and then it would load to my floppyless computer via cd? like the old program did to the old computers.? Or maybe a flash/thumb drive ?. or use an external portable?
I don't quite know how to go about this. I will appreciate any and all answers but I am not much of a techie so if your suggestions could be thorough and simple I would really appreciate that.
And if that becomes successful then there will be a question # two and I will save it for a later date. (that will involve trying to use a usb printer when the program only recognizes the LP1 for printing.) Thanks in advance.
