2. Set Seizeday.exe compatability (under properties) to run in 256 colours.
for 64 bit Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8 or MacOSX - use DOSBOX
HOWEVER ... IF you don't have Windows 3.1 and really need to have Seize the Day, then download
DosBox plus Doswin.zip - which has Seize the Day pre -loaded .
1. Download and install
3. Follow simple instructions included in the
doswin folder. (for Win 8 - same as for Win 7)
4. THEN run Dosbox - Windows 3 will load and
Seize the Day will automatically run - ENJOY!

after quitting StD - type exit to quit DosBox
Other DosBox Hints for if you have not used the pre-installed version
1. For Mac or PC if you want to use StD under DosBox without fussing with Windows, edit the system.ini file of Windows 3.1 to use the line shell=c:\seize\seizetheday.exe
2. If you don't want to fuss with DosBox after installing Windows 3.1 - open "dosbox-0.74.conf" (win) with Notepad for PC - At the end of the file under [autoexec] insert the following lines:-
mount c c:\doswin
or for Mac OS X
in Dosbox-0.74. Preferences for MacOSX add the lines : (presuming your 'doswin' folder is placed at top level of your 'home' folder) (and watch out for spaces. eg mountspace cspace
mount c ~/doswin

On October 23rd 2010, after years of intermittent searching ,
I found a demo of Seize The Day Living World Calendar from 1993.
Mixed it with old files from a non-working copy a friend sent me,
plus the scanned original booklet from another.
Still beautifully enchanting
... and a useful program
