Popcorn Desktop 1.x

Popcorn desktop is a set of TSR utilities similar to Borland Sidekick. It includes a text editor, a calculator, and a calendar. It can copy information from currently running programs displayed on the screen.

Popcorn Desktop was primarily targeted at OEM software or computer bundles, and it was bundled with other products from Star Software Systems. Star Software System's primary products were a series of financial software tools.

Installation instructions

Requires 128K or more, and DOS 2.0 or higher.

This archive includes one 320K (8-sector, DOS 1.x formatted) 5.25" floppy disk image.

Important: This disk is formatted for PC-DOS 1.1 and will not open in tools like Winimage. (It is odd that a 1986 title is formatted like this, especially since this software requires DOS 2.0 or later)
