Manually Installing IBM PS/2 Works 2.00 on a Hard Drive
PSS ID Number: Q49665 Article last modified on 06-12-1996
This article describes how to manually set up on a hard drive Works version 2.00 that comes bundled with an IBM PS/2 Model 25 or 30.
In this release of the program, the printer drivers are compressed and must be decompressed to be usable.
The following steps can be used to decompress a printer driver:
Copy SETUP.EXE from the Setup disk in Drive A to the Works directory on the hard drive.
Make the Works directory the active directory and use the following syntax:
SETUP [drive][path]sourcefile[.ext] [drive][path]destfile[.ext]
Extensions are optional and are ignored by SETUP.EXE.
For example, to copy the printer driver for the Z cartridge on the HP LaserJet from Drive A to C:, type the following:
SETUP A:HPLASMS.CPR C:.PRD
After decompressing the printer driver, the contents of all the Works disks can then be copied to the Works directory on the hard drive.
