    ESS had a collection of apps they bunled with the ES1688. I saw mention
    of "Band in a Box" by pgmusic, and ESS' own "AudioRack".

    Any thoughts would be helpful.

    Nevermind -- I was able to rebuild the second disk from other

    Lorenzo/Luis,

    I recently acquired a ChipChat and need this 2nd disk image, do you
    still have it?  It never made it to Ardent-Tool and it's not on
    ChipChat's website.

    Any help would be appreciated!

    Thanks,

    Looks like the self-extracting disk files were called CCSOUND1.EXE & CCSOUND2.EXE: https://web.archive.org/web/19970103121340/http://www.chipchat.com/ChipChat/USA/ChpChtSB_SupportFiles.html

    There were on a customer-only FTP though. No sign of them anywhere on
    the internetz.

    A stripped down version of the official ChipChat website is still up: http://www.chipchat.com/index.html
    with some of the pages modified earlier this year: http://www.chipchat.com/ChipChatDirect.html
    Maybe they still have the files?

    Might be worth asking if everything else fails...

    Wow just woke up! I'll keep looking, but I've crawled wayback machine on the chipchat site and didn't get lucky. I will scour the internet for CCSOUND1.EXE and CCSOUND2.EXE. I also pinged Lorenzo on facebook.

    Install fails without the second disk. It asks for Disk2, which you can fudge your way past by making a disk.2 file on the floppy... and after that you see that setup needs CTL3D.dll and then fails.

    Yeah I was thinking of doing that, but I am not sure how to compress the files to the format the installer expects. It looks like its the classic expand... I assume I can use deflate?

    Yeah, it's probably the usual expand-compatible compression. There was a
    pair of utilities - compress.exe and expand.exe. It's either DEFLATE or

    yeah i just did that with compress.exe So the next file needed is
    A:\winapdll\auddrive.in_ not sure where to grab that........

    Louis, would Lorenzo have emailed it to you or something to you
    back in 2019?
    auddrive.ini probably...

    Files from a generic ESS1688 driver package might work. Like here:
    https://oemdrivers.com/sound-ess1688

    Ideally we would want to use the same version ChipChat shipped with the >>>> card.
    So I've been chugging along finding various files from different
    ESS1688 packages. Looks like A:\winapps\tcalc.exe is one I hit a wall
    with.


    Actually, finding files I need in the sound piper drivers

    Ah right, we should have checked that package first probably... :)

    Tcalc.exe - Talking Calculator

    Totally not a gimmick... Why is all that stuff mandatory to install?

    The best part is the shitty installer has no retry option when it can't find a file..... I have re-run the installer probably 60+ times now... rebuilding this disk... for likely just Windows 3.1....

    Thanks guys, this was helpful. I dumped the whole AWAV contents from the SoundPiper drivers in there and with a few more files got the install to complete. Things are really broken because the Audiovation was installed previously. I am going to nuke the system and start fresh and report back. Will take a bit. Thinking of using System commander so i can multiboot different OS's

    Hopefully things will become less broken after the reinstall. Luckily,
    all the important (and potentially somewhat customized) files were on
    the first disk. The second one is mostly support software + some junk.
    So, we should be good with this "crossbreed" disk set, I think...

    Tom, can we determinate what the disk-2 files are for other OS? Win3.1x
    done, what of W95 and NT?

    The SETUP.EXE with its integrated INF file is for Win 3.1 only it seems.

    The first disk also has the Win95 and NT drivers, but no setup program
    for them, so they must be installed using the Add New Hardware Wizard or Device Manager (the included DOC files confirm this). This will not
    install any of the support software. The DOC files mention WINAPPS.EXE
    on disk 2 that is supposed to install the SW under Win95/NT.

    The OS/2 driver set appears to be standalone as well. No mention of disk
    2 or support software in the OS/2 DOCs.

    Aside from the cc1.zip that's available on the Ardent Tool & ChipChat website, does anyone have the original disks that they can make images of?

    Would seem there's a second disk in the pack, and cc1.zip only gets you halfway though the windows installation.

    Any thoughts would be helpful.

    Thanks !!
    Nevermind -- I was able to rebuild the second disk from other available sound card archives. ZIP file has been sent to Louis for archival.

    Hope everyone had a nice holiday !!
    Lorenzo/Luis,

    I recently acquired a ChipChat and need this 2nd disk image, do you still have it? It never made it to Ardent-Tool and it's not on ChipChat's website.

    Any help would be appreciated!

    Thanks,

    I just emailed ChipChat and surprisingly it didn't bounce. Not yet anyway...

    I doubt I will get a reply, but eh, it's worth a shot.

    It wont happen tonight, but I plan to run Setup in Win95/NT/OS/2 and see what happens. Never played with OS/2 before so I have to acquire it and see what happens. Let me know if I should bother if it appears the files are just for Win31

    Also, I wasn't able to locate the midi files... I just inserted some really small random Midi I found on the internet. If anyone can find them... let me know!

    The SETUP.EXE binary is only for Win 3.1. See the "Re: Other installs?"
    branch of this thread...

    I think the missing WINAPPS.EXE binary from disk #2 probably installs
    the same 16-bit software referenced in the SETUP.EXE... but I have no
    way of telling for sure.

    Tomáš how did you get the Setup.inf from the setup.exe? I mean I am sure I could google it.... but if you know of good software that I can use, please let me know. I might look into manipulating the install and perhaps sharing the results.

    Sorry for the late reply.

    I simply used a hex editor to open the executable - the INF contents are appended at the very end. Try editing the text in a hex editor and see
    if the setup complains. Maybe if you remove the INF section completely
    it will try loading an external file instead?

    I'm dealing with a bunch of stuff right now, and can't look into it
    deeper... sorry.
