    WHDLoad Why Just Games+Demos

    Hi All
    As the title says surely there has to be other programs that can benefit from bieng installed to HDD.
    Many Thanks

    Actually applications are Workbench-friendly so you can install them by hand or by the provided installer.

    Exactly. Most applications are workbench based, and the discs and their contents accessed directly, copied to HDD if there isn't an installer, and aliases setup in the startup sequence if required.

    WHDLoad is more designed for games and demos that come on disks which can't be read using workbench. It images the contents of these disks into that data or image files you find within a whdload installed games and also provides the actual install to allow it to load from HDD.

    If you haven't played a classic game in years, it's never too late to start!

    I guess it's possible to do it, but no advantage n that, it should be just for software that cannot be loaded on workbench, (NDOS disks).
    i can't remember programs that are NDOS... but i am sure there are some
