Hi ! I just downloaded the VMS_CHECK.ZIP file and used the (Alpha)unzip
program to unzip it. It unzipped into vms_check-feb07.a file.
I then attempted to use VMSINSTAL to load it.
VMSINSTAL says the file is not a BACKUP saveset...bummer.
I've tried several other files from the"FREEWARE CD".
They unzip and install with no problems using the PRODUCT INSTALL
and the VMSINSTAL methods.
The system is a Alpha 400/266, 384MB memory, 4.3GB disk, RRD47 and a matsushita cd-writer, DE500 internet adapter. OpenVMS 7.3-2, TCPIP,
Mozilla, and the kitchen sink (Freeware CD).
Has anyone tried this promising system utility yet?
Am I missing some secret switch on the VMSINSTAL?
The VMS_CHECK author doesn't provide many clues as to how it is

malmberg December 12 2017 HPE only makes the most current version of OpenVMS Alpha / IA64 /VAX available to hobbyists. When I had access to the Alliance 1 program it was the same. No public downloads are allowed by HPE.

malmberg September 10 2017 https://sourceforge.net/p /vms-ports/wiki/VMSInstal lation/ For the most part just use VMS 6.1 media instead of 7.3. But why run the older release?
