Easy PC Demo version

    Clueless I am but I persevere :-(

    Here is the problem:

    I have a legal copy of EasyPC for DOS and as long as HP Deskjets were
    available for parallel port connection I could get my printouts under
    DOS.

    Now Deskjets come with USP interface and I cannot get the printouts. I
    went to Number One web site and got a copy of Easy PC Demo for Windows
    ver 7.0; it is crippled to prevent saving the files. But to my great
    surprise it accepted my DOS layouts and printed them.

    Unfortunately I have a slow machine 133mHz - 64mb and putting Windows
    and Easy PC is too much for this machine (I mainly use DOS programs).
    As a retired person I have no resources to buy a new computer or learn
    a new system. I do occasional design for home improvement or show off
    the kids - n commercial interest anymore.

    I am interested in an older version of EasyPC Demo for Windows that
    will be easy on my machine. Mind you, I do not ask for a cracked
    version, only the Demo which was allowed to be downloaded by Number
    One people by anyone when these versions were current. (I already
    asked them for a copy and though I am holding a licensed DOS version
    they did not even reply).

    Of course I believe that the older version will also be not print
    crippled.

    Can anyone of you reading this please help me?

    Thanks for your patience.

    ClueLess,

    I can understand not having the resources to buy a new computer, but if you're
    retired, why wouldn't you have the time to learn a new system?

    If you can't put together the funds to purchase a new system, I'd suggest
    looking for a used DeskJet instead. They're quite inexpensive on, e.g., eBay.
    There are also a few new printers left that have parallel port connections,
    although they're definitely not the bargain-basement $39 specials you see at
    Wal*Mart (where the printer is pretty much given away and profit is made on
    the ink cartridges).

    I fowarded this to Easy-PC and they will get in touch with you. They
    don't think that they will be able to help, however.

    Your email server seems to have a problem:

    mail.wilderness.org: connection refused

    I have version 5 available.

    Sorry for that, it is a munged id.

    In any case the mail server I subscribe to does not allow big
    downloads, I think it is 5mb max.

    Why not post it to a binaries group or some free site like 125mb.com
    that is free?

    I would love to have a copy of this. I can receive mail at
    mrsandy at eth dot net

    Thanks a million for your response and the light in the tunnel.

    Thanks for your efforts, but Easy-PC already know about my requirement
    and they did not help me, an old customer at that.

  7. I'd love a copy also. My old DOS copy doesn't run under the current Windoze
    version of DOS, even if I boot from an old DOS boot disk. I've got one old
    schematic I did back in the 1980s with the very first edition of EZPC and it
    is still a current product. Every time I go to pull gerbers from that
    sucker, it is like pulling teeth.

    Please, a copy? jim at rstengineering dot com

    I have version 5 available.
    Anon,
    What is the filename? If it is unique (version-specific),
    I'll bet it can be found on a server with a .ru or .cz domain.

    I have now posted it to alt.binaries.

    X-No-Google-Store: yes

    That would be EasyPCDemo.exe

    Version 7.0, IIRC, is about 19 mb or so.

    Hope you can find a much earlier version that is small enough. The DOS
    version I bought in the last century hardly filled up two 720 kb
    diskettes :-( But it was a nicely done with X-No-archive: yes
    a minimum learning curve, even I could master it :)

    Hi Anon

    Thanks a lot for taking trouble to post the software.

    But it is the tale of the cup and lip al over again - It has so far
    not appeared in the Teranews server which I look in :-(

    Has any one else succeeded in getting a copy of what was posted by
    Anon?

    Will you help me getting a copy for myself?

    Thanks for your attention and patience

    Hi Anon

    When I thought my long search has ended when you posted you have
    version 5 bad luck was after me again with Teranews not showing your
    upload.

    Ok, I hope that you are seeing this post and I assume that you are
    willing to help me. I would suggest you put that stuff in a CD and
    mail it to me.

    If you are willing to go to that extent to help me please let me know
    at mrsandy at eth dot net and I will give you my mailing address.

    I do not want you do it all for nothing - I reimburse you costs as
    well as pay for your time, that it how much I am interested in the
    stuff.

    Hope you are active in this group.

    If all else fails, I'll do that. But I have a couple of tricks I want
    to try first.

    Try ftp://hwdb.dyndns.org/

    Note that server's network link is very slow, so expect around half an
    hour for the download.

    My next idea would be that you open a Gmail account, so we can use
    that to transfer the file.

    I could also split the file into smaller chunks, so you can receive
    them one by one on your current mail server.

    Got the account

    mrsandy8085 at gmail dot com

    I hope that now you can fire away.

    By the way EasyPC install itself requires a passwaord given by Number
    One Com. If ver 5 requires and you have it somewhere send that too.

    Thanks again

    I just thought of another option. Try this:

    http://home.c2i.net/helgew/easypc5demo.zip
    It does not need a password.

    At last !!!!!

    Hi Anon

    I got that file and boundless thanks to you for your kind efforts.

    I have installed it and it is not print disabled so I am able to print
    my DOS made pcb layouts. Requiring lesser resources it also has a more
    friendly interface for printing.

    If you need anything I can do please do let me know.

    Thanks again

    Hi Jim

    Did you see the latest post from Anon with the link for the EasyPCDEmo
    ver 5?

    Hope you too got a copy.

    You said your DOS edition of EasyPC does not work. You can write to
    me, my id is here in one of my posts. I will do what I can.
