To get past the "Please insert the disk labeled: Locoscript Master Disk 1" error, you need to change the drive label (in DOS use label.com) to "LS PC V1 D1". That deals with that error, however then you get "The disc in Drive A: is not an original LocoScript PC Master Disc 1.", which I haven't worked out how to get past yet. I *think* it has something to do with a signature disk sector that's supposed to be there (I've been decompiling INSTALL.EXE) but that's in no way definite.

How do you install this? The installer says "The disc in Drive A: is not an original LocoScript PC Master Disc 1."

In answer to your comment 'we have no idea what is the software about. I can refer you to:-
SD Microsystems Ltd.
PO Box 99
THETFORD

This is a comprehensive Word Processor/Database Application which although originally designed for DOS will run in Windows (except Vista). Please however obtain advice regarding Printers etc, from the above address. You CANNOT use USB Ports with this Application.
The best thing to do is to join their Locoscript 'Club' Support Scheme (Ј20 Per Annum) which will entitle you to ongoing E-Mail Support.
Please also see www. Locoscript.com or better still just type Locoscript into Google.
Best Wishes

The main difference - I tried it when it came out - with the original version for the PCW, was that Locoscript had been finely tuned to use under CP/M, and it did not work so nicely under DOS. For ex.: Locoscript under CP/M could switch from Latin script to Cyrillic/Greek at the touch of a key (in the 1980's!!!)

LocoScript started life as the software supplied for the Amstrad PCW series of word processors dating from 1985. This is a DOS version for PCW users upgrading to a PC.
