This article was previously published under Q76191
Tips Plus version 1.5 may have trouble installing after Microsoft
MS-DOS version 5.0 has been installed.
Tips Plus, manufactured by True Vision, is a graphics paint product
that is used with a True Vision Targa Board. After MS-DOS 5.0 is
installed, the Tips Plus program may have difficulty installing. If
the message "Packed file corrupt" appears, you should use the MS-DOS
LOADFIX command as follows:
The program should now install correctly. However, if Tips Plus gets
partially through its installation and displays the error message
"program failed to load," you must use the following workarounds:
• Load DOS low. This is done in the CONFIG.SYS file as follows:
• According to True Vision technical support, when installing Tips Plus
under MS-DOS 5.0, INSTALL.EXE should be added to the MS-DOS version
table as follows;
setver [drive:path] install.exe x.xx
where x.xx is the MS-DOS version number, which should be set to 4.01.
The version number can also be set to 3.x; however, this does not
ensure successful Tips Plus 1.5 installation.
• Boot from a previous DOS system disk (DOS 3.x has not been reliable
for successful Tips Plus installation according to True Vision; DOS
4.x is suggested)
• Install Tips Plus 1.5.
• Reboot from the hard drive under MS-DOS 5.
