Ability Plus 3.0 Install set
This page is for anyone curious about the Ability DOS program of the 80s and 90s. The link below is a full working version of the final release of Ability. There is no support offered on this download.
There's some information on Wikipedia about the history of the product.
- Download the ZIP file: AB3.ZIP
- Unzip to a folder on your hard drive. Do not unzip to a folder with long names (e.g. Documents and Settings/User/My Documents) since it will prevent startup. It is easiest to create a new folder e.g. C:\Ability
- From a command prompt, change to the Ability folder and run AB3.BAT
Notes: works with Windows 95 all the way through to Windows 7 except cannot be run in "graphics mode" in Windows XP-7. Also, Ability Plus cannot print to a Windows only printer.
