What is PsiWin 1.1?
PsiWin 1.1 is a 16-bit Windows application (that also runs under 32-bit versions of Windows, such as Windows XP) that allows you to connect your Psion SIBO machine to a PC via a serial port and RS-232 cable, to backup data, convert files and exchange information.
Note that PsiWin 1.1 is only for the following Psion machines:
You can also use PsiWin 2.3.3 with these machines, although PsiWin 2.3.3 does not have the Psion Database application. PsiWin 1.1 and 2.3.3 can be installed at the same time but not used at the same time.
PsiWin 1.1. will not work with any EPOC machine (e.g. Psion Series 5mx).
PsiWin 1.1 also offers limited synchronization with certain packages under Windows 3.1 (see 'Convertion Library' below for more details).
Check out the cables page for options on how to connect your Psion to your PC or laptop via serial cable, USB or InfraRed.
PsiWin 1.1 allows you to convert files between Psion formats and:
Features of PsiWin 1.1
Psion Manager is similar to Windows 3.1x File Manager. It allows you to drag and drop files between your Psion and PC - PsiWin automatically converts them to the right format, unless you hold down the Ctrl key when Psion Manager will simply copy the files.
Take your PC scheduler with you - access your Psion Agenda on your PC with this convertion program. For Microsoft Outlook 97 or above see Psi-Sync for MS Outlook.
PsiWin includes a PC version of the Psion Database so that you can take advantage of the PC's larger keyboard and add data to your database, or copy addresses from your Psion onto letters on your PC.
Automatically backup all of your Psion files safely onto PC - whether they are on the Psion or a Solid State Disk (SSD).
Psion Backup - Restore
Should you accidentally lose your data then Backup's restore feature will replace the latest backed-up version onto your Psion. I have used this backup restoration application a number of times and actually prefer it to the versions included in PsiWin 2.3.3 and Psi-Sync.
Print from your Psion to your printer via the PC with this handy application. The easy setup program even allows you to install TrueType (TTF) fonts on your Psion to use within Psion applications.
