Installing Single MSVC Files from VC++ 1.0 Disks


1.00 WINDOWS kbsetup --------------------------------------------------------------------- The information in this article applies to: - Microsoft Visual C++ for Windows, version 1.0 --------------------------------------------------------------------- SUMMARY ======= The files on the Microsoft Visual C++ (MSVC) version 1.0 for Windows distribution disks are compressed, and therefore a file cannot be merely copied from the floppy disks to replace one that was accidentally damaged or deleted. MS-DOS version 6.0 and Windows version 3.1 have a utility program EXPAND.EXE, which can be used to decompress files from the setup disks. MORE INFORMATION ================ The program EXPAND.EXE can be found in both the Windows and MS-DOS subdirectories on most systems. MS-DOS and Windows have slightly different versions of this program but both versions decompress the MSVC files. EXPAND.EXE is an MS-DOS program and must be run from the MS-DOS prompt. The following command line expands a file from disk 1 of the Professional Edition disk set: expand a:\mfc\errata.wr_ errata.wri The first parameter is the file to be expanded; the second is the output file. In this example, the output file is placed in the current drive and directory. Compressed files on the installation disks have an underscore (_) as the last character of the file extension. To locate a file in the disk set, see the PACKING.TXT file on disk 1. Some files cannot be installed in this way. The libraries, for instance, are created during setup. The Setup program runs the library manager to build the desired libraries from component files. Use the Setup program to re-install libraries.
