Creating Your Distribution Disks
Before you copy files to the distribution disks, it's a good idea to label the disks. On the first disk, attach a label that reads:
Disk1: Setup Disk
Insert this disk in drive A
In the Program Manager, choose Run from the File menu
Type a:setup and press Enter
This label provides all the instructions your customer needs to install your application. You can label the remaining disks similarly. For example:
Now you are ready to copy your files to the appropriate distribution disks.
To create distribution disks
1 Rename VER.DLL to VER.DL_. For example:
rename a:ver.dll a:ver.dl_
You must change the VER.DLL file extension to .DL_ so that Microsoft Windows does not try to use it while the setup disk is in the floppy disk drive.
2 Copy these files onto the first disk:
SETUP1.EXE (or whatever you've named your setup program)
If you've compressed any of these files, the last character of the file name will be an underscore (for example, VBRUN300.DL_).
3 Copy the remaining files as specified by your disk layout.
