I recently got some old diskettes, and sure enough I was lucky to find this gem a ‘virus free’ disk, the Team Computing demo disk.
So naturally it’s MS-DOS based, as that is all that was left in the early 1990’s.
And it’s chock full of vintage networking pitches, as Digital was trying desperatly to get people to buy their Enterprise software for being that all in one of file/print sharing, email and business process automation.
And of course it touts over and over again ‘open standards’ although I’m suspecting none of them really are that open, nor surviving.
Did it go anywhere? Did anyone actually use it?
It sounds like a somewhat useful all in one thing that I’m sure cost far far far too much money. And of course, in 1997 there was Microsoft Exchange 5.5 which basically killed everything.
I’ve only found a copy of Pathworks 7.1a on Ebay many many years ago, which I’ve used to get Windows NT onto Hecnet. That’s as much ‘Digitial for Windows’ software as I’ve used.
For anyone so inclined, you can download the demo files teamlinks.zip
can you pdf the Phar Lap extender manual?
Sadly I don’t have the manuals anymore. They didn’t offer anything all that interesting or that useful sadly.
Thanks for this, had fun running it on DOSBox!
