Thank you for your interest in my valve gear simulation program.
You will find all necessary files in ZIP Format. So you will need an un-zip program to open the installation.
Remark in 2013 (I have programmed this in 1998/99 mostly!!)
The program is still running with Widows 7 and Windows 8 for me - with little inconveniences ;-) But Microsoft has changed it's help file structure starting with Windows 7. Because of this interactive help text is only available while operating the program within Windows 95/98 or Windows XP.
Remark in 2015
There is a free add on available provided by Microsoft to display such old Help content with new Windows versions. Please search for 'WinHlp32.exe for Windows 8.1' or try out this link for Windows 8.1 help
Help context installation:
I have provided documentation and an explanation of this program so that not only experienced "steamboaters" can utilize its output, but also "newcomers" can learn something. The Help Text can be read as a book -- page-by-page -- with a "click" on the Next Page button. You can download the help text for free and run it without the program.
Just click on the two files with the right mouse button (on Windows Systems) and download them to any directory in your computer for free. After that click on the dampf15e.hlp file and it will start automatically. . dampf15e.hlp ca. 51 kB - works only with win 95/98 or Win XP dampf15e.cnt ca. 2 kB - works only with win 95/98 or Win XP
