This article was previously published under Q44029


PC AppleShare is a package of AppleTalk network utility programs for the PC from Apple, Inc. It allows you to share resources, such as hard-disk drives and printers that are connected to AppleTalk with a LocalTalk PC netcard. The DA.EXE utility emulates the Macintosh Chooser and allows you to select a LaserWriter, ImageWriter, or other AppleShare device made available to the network for your own use.

If you attempt to run DA.EXE from the DOS prompt while the PC Mail Notifier is loaded, you will receive a partial list of AppleShare devices from the Chooser menu. You must turn off the Notifier to view all the AppleShare devices.

Note: PC AppleShare was not one of the software configurations tested with Microsoft Mail (PC Client) version 1.37.


This configuration was tested with Mail (PC Client) versions 2.00 and 3.00. Running DA.EXE after Mail's Notifier is loaded will show a full list of AppleShare devices from the Chooser.
