In versions 1.0 and 1.0a of Microsoft Schedule+ for Windows, the Schedule+ Demo requires that the working directory be the directory containing the demonstration program files (PLAY.EXE, SCHDPLUS.EXE, DEMOFX.DEX, and CBLIB3.DLL).

This can create problems when you run Schedule+ from the network (a network installation). Typically, a network administrator would want to limit the directories that contain executable files to Read Only status. However, with the Schedule+ Demo configuration, this is not possible.


The following steps outline a procedure to create an alternate directory for just the Schedule+ Demo files:

  1. Create the directory X:\SCHDDEMO on the file server, where X is the server from which the Schedule+ Demo files are to be run.
  2. Copy the following files from the SCHDPLUS directory to the newly created shared directory:


  3. From the Windows File Manager File menu, choose Associate. In the Files With Extension box, type les. In the Associate With box type PLAY.EXE. Choose OK.
  4. From the Windows Program Manager File menu, choose New, then select Program Item. Then type the following information:
    In This Box Type
    Description Schedule+ Demo
    Command Line x:\schddemo\schdplus.les
    Working Directory x:\schddemo

You should now be able to run the Schedule+ Demo by double-clicking the Schedule+ Demo icon or by double-clicking the SCHDPLUS.LES file in File Manager.
