Has anyone ever heard of a menu system called "LeMenu?" I used to use it back in the early 90s and have been looking to get a copy of it just to bring back old memories. But I can't seem to find it anywhere. Anyone have any info or know where I can get a copy?

thanks,
mike.

all I could find was people remeniscing about it. I mean we are going all the way back to the days of wordstar here. I think I was problably using this in college back in 91. I know some people who are into the archaic software and will see if they have it, but I bet they don't.

I am looking for the DOS verison.

I don't know if the software would still be under copyright or whatnot, considering it's so old and out-dated. If it's not protected any longer, could you send me a copy?

thanks,
mike.

The software that I'm interesting in tracking down is LeMenu, a DOS based menu system, not DOS itself.

Ax238,

Thank you for the post. Unfortunately, that is not the same program I am looking for. I installed it (on a VPC, just to be safe), and unless it's another version, it is not the same program.

The date stamp for the executable in the file you linked to was 1996. However, I used this menu system in the early 1990s (it was pre-Windows 95, when I still had Windows 3.1).

I think Abokhorst has the right version, since I do remember having to type "go" to get into the menu system.

Thanks for the try, though!

mike.

Abokhorst,

That is definitely it! Thanks for the pictures.

If you wouldn't mind mailing the disk to me, I would gladly pay you for it (assuming shipping from the Netherlands isn't too expensive).

I live in the United States. I could pay you through Paypal, if you have an account.

Please let me know if this works for you.

thanks,
mike.

I know this thread has been dormant for 7 years, an eternity, however, I would like to know if anyone has been able to post this "le menu" somewhere... Last weekend, for some strange reason, I got into a retro mood and was wondering if I´d still be able to get Le Menu and relieve old times... unfortunately, the 5.25 inch disks I found back in the garage, have become unreadable after 20 years...

O. M. G. !  I will also add my voice to the masses requesting Le Menu.  I just spent this weekend rescuing a clone XT belonging to my Dad and I from 25 years ago.  Half of FAT1 and all of FAT2 (so I couldn't manually restore FAT1) are toast so Le Menu is one of the things I can't get off this old, defective ST-238R without paying someone a thousand dollars.  Dibbes, you're awesome just for being alive!
