Unprotect Files

The following collection of “unprotects” was obtained from The Programmer’s Corner (see UNPROT-1 and UNPROT-2). They describe how to disable copy protection in various vintage programs.

For example, LOTUS.TXT describes how to disable the copy protection in Lotus 1-2-3 Release 1A and Lotus 1-2-3 Release 1A*.

The files have also been copied to the 1.2M diskette “Unprotect Files (UNPROT 1 & 2)”, which can be loaded in any IBM PC AT-compatible machine.
