View Full Version : Looking for Kaypro SWP Co-Power-88 Core Software

Does anyone have a Kaypro version of the SWP Co-Power 88 utility software in ImageDisk or Teledisk format? I've acquired the DOS and CPM-86 Teledisk images from the Zorba z80 site (http://www.zorba.z80.de/swp.htm) and they should work, but I don't believe the Zorba PCDOS.COM and RAMDISK.COM files from the SWP utility disk are compatible with the Kaypro versions. I attempted to run the programs using 22Disk to extract the .com files, but the programs abort with "no 8088 detected" when run on my Kaypro 4-84. I have to think memory locations and such are different on the Zorba vs. the Kaypro.

Any help is appreciated.

I have IMD images labeled:

Kaypro 4+88 Master
Disk 1 of 2
MSDOS Version 2.11

...and:

Kaypro 4+88 Master
Disk 2 of 2
MSDOS Version 2.11

If you give me your email address, I'll send them to you.

I think there's software on it in the Maslin collection on retroarchive.org as well.

Thanks Geneb. Those might be the right disks and I would not have found them otherwise. Mloewen also sent me some ImageDisks of co-power software so I'll try them all out this week.

Thanks to you both! The images Mike sent me and the images on retroarchive.org were the same and both worked with my co-power board. Here is the link (http://www.retroarchive.org/maslin/disks/kpro/index.html) to the retroarchive images in case anyone else needs this software. The two files to download are copwrcpm.td0 and copwrdos.td0.

Also good to know is that the SWP co-power board is compatible with a TurboROM install.
