AMIDiag Suite for DOS and Windows

AMIDiag Suite is a complete hardware diagnostics package, which I had a lot of fun testing. I have always loved dinking with utilities and diagnostics programs. That is where I fed my fascination and also learned the most in the early days of DOS and Windows 3.1. AMIDiag Suite includes both AMIDiag 6.11 for DOS as well as the brand new AMIDiag for Windows. No such software will ever be 100% perfect, but this is  probably the most reliable available today.

The Package

Installation CD
Contains all installation files, including a documentation PDF file for each version. Yes, it would be nice to have printed documentation in front of you, but don't forget about the F1 help key, which will give you pretty decent info as you need it.

AMIDiag Suite Quick Start Guide
Easy to follow installation instructions and an overview of the program features.

Serial and Parallel External Loop-back Plugs
An effective way to verify that a PC's serial and parallel ports are working correctly. With the plugs, an input/output "loop" is created, allowing the program to send data out of the PC, then receive data back. Most all other diagnostic software packages do not include these, yet will say how very important it is that you use them!

Error Code Guide
A spiral bound book with all of the errors known to the program that you may encounter. The tables include the error code, an explanation and the recommended action. Very handy to have, especially if you ran a batch mode.


Platform

Compatible with Windows 95/98/ME/NT/2000. Now, I'm not experienced with Windows ME, but according to AMI, AMIDiag is the only diagnostic software that runs in DOS mode and is capable of running on a Windows ME system without the need for a DOS floppy.
