    Just checked my startup script and it simply uses xcopy to copy the files to "C:\Program Files\Keep I.T. Easy\Flowol 2\Mimics".

    The files being copied have no extension (all start with Log) and then there's three folders (beginning with LF) which contain BMP files.

    Must admit, I havent as I went on the website and saw the cost of the new discs with mimics on so presumed that they wouldnt just give them to me! Will do that now

    @Witch: Did you get this sorted as I've found Flowol 2 setup files on an old machine?

    I borrowed a USB floppy in the end...I couldnt get the mimics to work if I just copied them, Ric_, I can't imagine why.
    But thanks for all your help
