That's it - just that. put z88dk in c:\z88dk

Your project can be anywhere else but need to be relative to the nabu-lib folder - that's why the github looks so ugly. Maybe it's something I'll fix today or tonight. should only take a minute.

As for your BUILD.BAT files, if it's a nabu file than your output path should be where your nabu segments folder is in the internet adapter. Otherwise, the CPM tools will create a disk if it's a cpm program. And that disk needs to be copied to your retronet storage folder. also found in the internet adapter settings

Thank very much for that! I’m not a YouTube person - I’m sure there are others too ;) so I was thinking of writing it up as I go for a simple “get started” for others! I see this as a great system to get people into programming and others like me - not programmed in 30 years - back into it! So I was not wanting to write up anything that “conflicts” with a suggested tree!

If you are planning to tidy up your GitHub I may well just just suggest cloning the tree into the desired development folder?

Thanks again!
