After Installation two icons , one labeled Stk2002, and one labeled Stk will appear on your desktop.

Stk2002 is fully operational either from the command module or from the Windows console.

The script function includes two windows that drop down when you click the "My Scripts" button. The left window contains a matching text file for each of the script files in the right window. Clicking a TXT file brings up the file in Windows Notepad. Clicking a .BAT file actually runs the script.

Be careful if you make your own scripts. They can be very powerful and computers do what you tell them to do; not what you want them to do. Those two things are not always the same.

 A DOS script is a computer program.  Scripts can do any thing to a computer that you can do from a DOS command line. Things like Format your hard drive etc.
