So, why a program?

The idea is a program to install and unistall files, but without copy anything manualy. Olso you can make a backup of the old version.

What is this program?
This is a Macromedia - based aplication, connected to .BAT and .TXT files.

Is an opencode Program?
Well, Macromedia is not a opencode system, but the .BAT files can be edited. That´s intencional, to be easy to add other packs.

 


System Requirements:
In theory Dialectocalypse will run in every PC with windows 95 - 98 - 2000. I didn´t test it in XP, but should work.

Known Problems
when you install a new version over one old, the .c2l file will be replaced. Be sure to have installed a language you want be the original.
