I got it, but now I don't understand the images I obtain long time ago.

When i try to create the diskette unit A: i don't say any img file.
So why i have these strange extensions ?

dBase 5.0 Disk1 -> Disk4 ?

Have you tried renaming the extension and then mounting it?

A quick search on the internet says that 0d1, 0d2, 0d3, and 0d4 are database files for a program called Omnis 5 circa 1989.

As far as I can discover, nothing else is known to have used those file extensions.

I fail to understand this quest for old software. :huh:
Please try to explain why you would want to start using this very old, and unsupported, software. There are so many, much better and modern, alternatives available.

I know tomos.

I am a software lover with a complicated mind and bad memory looking for the perfect software. Why not in the past ?. I remember some years ago i was younger and that's a good point.

At the present moment i am going mad with javascript, DOM, COM, AHK......
Ah my beloved dBASE.
