littlemoma,

An executable can definitely be done from a DOS prompt...

You may not have info on SUP622.EXE ...
The executable is a self-extracting zip file
containing the supplemental utilities,
which are also compressed files.

The archive contains EXPAND.EXE
which is used to decompress the files.
You can do that manually on the
specific files that you need,
but the expanded files
contain a batch file
to install them.

You should first create a new temporary directory
to hold the files that will be extracted
from the SUP622 executable...
Then copy SUP622.EXE
to the new directory.

When you run SUP622.EXE, the files it contains (approx. 70)
are unzipped to the current directory...
So first create a temporary directory, copy SUP622.EXE to it
and then expand the supplemental files and utilities there.
That way all the files will be in one exclusive location and easily managed.
Once the supplemental files are installed, you can copy SUP622.EXE
to a floppy or other directory (for future use if necessary)
and then delete the files from the temporary directory
and remove it to clean up afterwards.

Here are some brief instructions on how to
create a directory for holding the supplemental files
and copy SUP622.EXE to that directory
and expand the supplemental files.

The directory in this example will be named SUP622
and will be created in the root of the C: drive ...

At the DOS prompt, change to the directory
currently containing SUP622.EXE and type:

MD C:\SUP622

That will make a directory on the C: drive named SUP622 ...
Now at the DOS prompt, copy SUP622.EXE
to that directory by typing:

COPY SUP622.EXE C:\SUP622

Once the file is copied, change to the SUP622 directory
by typing:

CD\SUP622

Now you can run the SUP622.EXE file
and expand the supplemental files.

To do that, type:

SUP622

-and press Enter ...
You'll see a list of the files as they're expanded.

The archive includes a batch file for installing the supplemental utilities...
Its name is SETUP.BAT so once the files are expanded from SUP622.EXE
you can install them by typing:

SETUP C:\DOS

Replace C:\DOS with C:\MSDOS
or the directory to install the utilities into...

Then, if you used the above methods to do all this
and have expanded and finished installing the supplements,
you can delete and clean up the expanded files
and temporary holding directory using the
commands below at the DOS prompt...

From within the SUP622 temporary holding directory, type:

DEL *.*
CD\
RD SUP622


Post back if you need help getting into Windows
and provide your DOS and Windows versions...
