Anyone still have a copy of the PR1 software floating around?

Andy, I do have the PR-1 software around here somewhere, but finding it will be a PITA. I will look. This software comes on a floppy disk, so even if I find it, I don't have a way to get the info off of it to see if it is still good. None of my computers have floppies anymore. But I hope that you understand that this software and device is so old that it can't be run on anything later than Win98. I tried it long ago on Win2000, and XP and it wouldn't work. Plus it will not work on anything newer than it can read. Back then it couldn't even read the old QSI sound, which could be read on any throttle that had read-back capability.
I would highly recommend an upgrade to either a PR-3 from Digitrax, the older MS-100 which is still available, http://www.digitrax.com/products/computer-control/ ,it acts strictly as an interface, or the LocoBuffer from RR-Circuits, http://www.rr-cirkits.com/ (http://www.rr-cirkits.com/)
As many years as I have been computer programming Decoders, the two best interfaces I have found is the PR-3, and the Locobuffer USB.

I have older computers which i run speed dependent software on, so no problem there. Get kind of odd looks when ordering 3.5" disks.

That I know! My daughter's last computer had a floppy drive in it, and she asked if we had any old floppies she could use. We didn't, so the next day we went to the local Office Depot, and bought a box of 50 for the price we used to pay for 5! Turns out we bought out their last box!
