TMWDCC Software

The TMWDCC Software is a DOS program that will make your PC to behave as a DCC Command station. You can use any old PC, 8086, 80286 or 80386. Also a 80486 or a Pentium. The only features you need in the PC are a printer port and a game port. You donīt even need a harddisk, the program can run on a bootable floppy.

Make a TMWDCC working directory by typing md tmwdcc. Change into the directory typing cd tmwdcc and copy the zipped program to it. Unzip the file using winzip or pkunzip. Also unzip the file Now remove the .dec files that you do not need. They all have names that correspond to decoder types. If you do not have any e.g. ZTC decoders, remove the ztcxxx.dec files and if you do not have any Lenz decoders, remove the Lenz .dec files. Remember, you can only have up to 10 .dec files.

To make the program run, boot your PC with DOS ver3, 5 or 6. TMWDCC does NOT run from Windows or from a Windows DOS screen ! Change into your working TMWDCC directory and load the driver by typing (xx meaning the version number of the driver) The driver loads and uses the LPT1 printerport. If you want to use LPT2 you type 2 instead. Now you start TMWDCC by typing tmwxxx.exe (xxx meaning the version number of the program).
