Installation of Powercopy

Installation under WIN 95, WIN 98, ME

Insert the disk or the CD-ROM into the drive.

If you have the self extracting version (pc_inst..._eng.exe), then you must first execute this file. Next enter the temporary installation folder (e.g., c:\). Enter "extract to "c:\ ". The installation files will be extracted to c:\pc_inst_eng .

The Powercopy setup will be started after you have double clicked the file "__Doubleclickme.bat" inside the installation folder (c:\pc_inst_eng). During the installation you will be instructed by the program. The installation will copy files and create registry entries. The default installation folder is c:\program files. If you choose a installation folder different than the default, never choose the folder "?:\pc_inst_eng" !!! (Note: Powercopy occupies less than 2 MB of disk space.)

After the installation delete this temporary folder.

The file transfer feature of Powercopy Logic using Win9x/NT/2000/XP...  is started by pressing the right mouse button after selecting (highlighting) a file or a folder. See  Use of Powercopy inside Windows Explorer.

The hard disk copy feature of Powercopy Clone / Plus is started by double click on pc.exe (DOS,WfW,9x,ME) or pc32.exe(NT/2000/XP or newer OS) pc.exe or pc32.exe can be found on your installation folder.

Setup using WIN 3.x or DOS

Copy the file "pc.exe" from the Powercopy installation folder (Disk/CD/HD) in a folder which may be reached by the PATH environment variable. Note: Enter the command (Pure Dos or Dos-Box): "set PATH". Here; displayed paths are scanned by the OS every time a program is executed. This allows Powercopy (PC.exe) to be found by every call of "pc.exe" inside any folder. Powercopy under Dos/Win3x is always called with command lines. See Description under DOS or the DOS Box
