APL*PLUS/PC on Windows 7 (32 bit)

I have a brand new Windows 7 system, and guess what -- my old Windows XP solutions for getting the APL font to work no longer work!

Has anyone using Win 7 (32 bit) been able to get the font working in a DOS window?

I have versions 9 and 11 of APL*PLUS/PC. Believe it or not, I still occasionally go into old utility workspaces looking for something. (I suppose this query illustrates why I should convert the wss once and for all!)

I got this working with the help of the Paul Houle's APL bitmap fonts.

1. Download and install the fonts:
2. Open a command prompt window: C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe
3. Set its font to be one of Paul's "STSC-APL" fonts
4. Start APL.EXE

I then saved a shortcut with
Code: Select all
C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe /c apl.exe
as the Target, so double-clicking the shortcut starts APL.
