pdp11 Installing PDPTube on Windows
 MDFS::Apps.Emulators.Tube.PDPTube.install.htm Search  

PDPTube for DOS/Windows comes with PDP-11 BBC BASIC bundled with it. The first time PDPTube is run it extracts BASIC to its own application directory. This means that the first time it is run you need to run it with appropriate access permissions to be able to write to the application directory.

You should have your Windows system set up so that you cannot write to applicaton directories as a normal user. So, the first time you run PDPTube you need to be logged on as an admin user so that it can extract the embedded BASIC code. Once it has done this PDPTube can be run as a standard user.
