Some people have written me if I am going to write a Windows version of DCP (Disk Copy Program). It is astonishing how many people still use DCP41 which is rather old and was developed using Borland C++ 2.0/3.0. Some of you might remember these tools. First, I will have to take a look how new Windows versions handle access to floppies. Anyway, if someone could point me to some example code I would be very thankful. Then, I will need to write a GUI. I'd rather prefer .NET but unfortunately this would require users to have the .NET framework installed.
