System Requirements: 80386, 2 MB RAM, 1 MB Hard Disk, VGA Color Monitor, Mouse
Note: RF Workbench WILL NOT run in any 64-bit version of Windows w/o an emulator! Fortunately, DOSBox (free) will allow a DOS screen capture of any RF Workbench screen! It also fixes "The NTVDM CPU has encountered an illegal instruction," errors.
When unzipping "rfwb40b.zip", be sure to select the option to re-create the subdirectories.;
Thanks to Mr. Ted Bruce for discovering this method!
