Can I run Private Eye from a floppy disk? PDF Print E-mail

Yes but, for now, you can only run the free (read-only) version from floppy disk. Run the Private Eye installation program as normal and specify the floppy disk as the installation destination.

Alternatively, for intermediate/advanced users, here's another way to do it:

  • Install Private Eye as normal on any machine.
  • Insert your floppy disk into the disk drive - you'll need at least 400K free on the disk.
  • Copy all the files from the Private Eye installation folder onto your floppy disk (it doesn't matter whether they go in the root directory or in a subdirectory on the floppy - it's up to you). Please be sure to copy all the files - including the on-line Help and contents files (*.hlp and *.cnt) - so as to stay within the intent of the license.

Now you can go to any machine, insert the disk just created and run Private Eye directly from the floppy.

[You may also be interested to know that you can start Private Eye directly from the DOS prompt.]
