MICRODEM Download


MICRODEM is a microcomputer mapping program written by Professor Peter Guth of the Naval Academy. The program requires a 32 bit version of Windows such as XP and will run on 64 bit Windows in 32 bit mode.

To get the program:

Browser

New EXE (10 MB).  Requires a "recent" complete install and will be more current than the version in the complete install.  Use the "Save file as" or "Save target as" and Place in the MICRODEM directory (c:\microdem).

Executing the installation program will create icons on the start menu and two directories:

The program  will create a log of program operations in the file 'microdem_debug_log.txt', in c:\microdem\logs;  the easiest way to get the file is to to open it from the Help menu while the program is still running. You must copy this file immediately after encountering an unexplained crash, because the file is overwritten every time you run the program. Send the file to me and I can better determine what caused the problem. The debug log is not complete, and I may have to add additional debugging messages to the program and have you repeat the error and send a new log until we can isolate the problem.

You can get data sets configured to work with MICRODEM.  We are moving the download of data to occur inside the program, which will automatically put the data sets in the correct locations.  See the documentation.

You can still get the following data sets:

If you want to perform code archaeology, you can get the DOS source code from about 1995.
