Running NetworkView from a floppy
One of NetworkView’s neatest features for an IT consultant is the ability to run the program from a floppy disk. To get NetworkView onto a floppy disk, you must first install it on your PC. Then copy a set of NetworkView’s files to a floppy disk. (The necessary files are listed in the Help system.) This set can be as small as just the program’s executable file or it can consist of the full program, which includes several database files and the Help system. The set you choose will depend on whether you need all the program’s features or just the bare bones configuration. Regardless of which set you choose, the entire program will fit on a standard 1.44-MB floppy with room to spare, which will allow you to save the reports and maps generated by the program.
