Got my Informix disks in today and there were no file issues as far as I can tell! Unfortunately, there's another issue - the program requires activation which we can no longer do. It calls /once/brand to serialize the installation, so perhaps some inspiration from OS/2 Museum can be applied here? http://www.os2museum.com/wp/tales-from-the-xenix-crypt/

Excellent!

If anyone wants to take a "crack" at it, I've uploaded the images in a ZIP archive to the Files subforum. Have fun!

Oh I plan to have lots of fun with this! I've seen this kind of thing before.

Anyone got Al Kossow's contact info?

He's on here, you can DM him: https://lisalist2.com/index.php?action=pm;sa=send;u=45 or try aek (a) bit savers {dot} org.

Yup: https://lisalist2.com/lisalist1/2496.html (warning, it's full of Rick and Morty memes)

I'm not sure if this will work the same or not, but I plan to use the same approach. But basically there, I went around brand and modified the multiplan executable itself after seeing how brand works. though yes, I started with brand.

However, this is also an excuse for me to try to get Xenix going on LisaEm as well - the issue seems to be that it doesn't like my profile emulation, so I'm going to try to either placate Xenix or if I can disassemble enough of the driver, to use High Level Emulation to get around it.

And also could you scan in the manual and put a disk image up of it, either here or on bitsavers?

It's a 3.5" disk and runs on Lisa 7/7.  It's version A-1 and the manual indicates there was an earlier version.

And also could you scan in the manual and put a disk image up of it, either here or on bitsavers?

I scanned the manual and have it here:  http://vintagecomputer.ca/files/Apple/Lisa/documents/KeystrokeforLisaManual.pdf

I have not yet imaged the floppy.  What is the best method to do this?  I do have an Apple Sauce imager.  Will it do a 7/7 compatible disk?  I've never tried it.

I would probably say booting up BLU and dumping the disk over RS-232 is your best bet

Great! If you can attach a serial cable with hardware handshaking to Serial Port B of your Lisa and something with XModem support on the other end (i.e. minicom, Zterm, hyperterminal, etc.) you could boot off a BLU floppy from here: http://sigmasevensystems.com/BLU.html

Otherwise, if you have a classic Mac (i.e. System 9 and lower with a floppy drive), you can use Disk Copy 4.2 to image it and then find a way to transfer that file to a modern machine.

Hang on, the manual says there's two disks... do you have both disks?

Bummer.  I only got one disk with it.  At least we have the manual and know it exists.  I guess there's not much point at archiving the one disk :(

do it anyway, the first disk might be enough, maybe the 2nd disk is for examples, etc.

I'll second Ray - better to have something preserved than nothing at all!
