Genius menu maker IBM PC compatibles

Postby Lardo Boffin » Tue Jul 11, 2017 12:28 pm

I received an assorted bunch of discs today and in amongst them were a lot of discs by Genius, including Menu Maker and Dr Genius.

Anyone have any idea what they are? They are for IBM compatibles but have no idea beyond that.

If they are of use to anyone you are welcome to them for the cost of p&p otherwise they will probably end up being reformatted and used. :twisted:

It might be worth dumping the data in case they're not archived already. The Internet Archive has Genius Menu Maker 7.07 and Dr. Genius 3.00.

Unfortunately I don't have an IBM PC. :oops:

Maybe a low level disk reader would do the trick on the Beeb?
There's Petrov DOS FS or DOSFS if you actually want to look at the contents.
