I am actually the computer tech of the company who started this post, Ziegelmeyer manufacturing. My job is to set up Drafix 4.20 to work on a new windows 7 pc. To do this I have setup a virtual machine (VM) of Windows 98, because this is the OS he was running on his existing machine. I was able to make a full and complete backup of his Windows 98 hard drive which included all of the Drafix program installation folders.
I took this full image backup and dumped it into the virtual machine's virtual hard drive. After doing so it is almost a complete and working copy of his existing Windows 98 PC. I can even run all of his originally installed software without having to reinstall any other. But I cannot get Drafix to successfully start. I believe this is due to the driver discrepancies.
What I do have available to me was the original installation floppy disks of Drafix version 4.00k Sep 90, but the company that I work for bought the Drafix version 4.20j Dec 92 some years later. I have installation floppies from the original 4.00 version, but over the years the 4.20 version installation disks were lost. I need to install the 4.20 version because this version extends the memory which enables CAD drawings to be larger.
Does anyone know where I can get the installation files or a copy of the installation disk of Drafix 4.20j Dec 92.
Does anyone know of a way to taking the existing files that I have and making a workable version of 4.20j Dec 92.
I have extensive experience in DOS programming, as well as other languages. So any help no matter how technical would be appreciated.
