tpdemo? The interactive ThinkPad demo & features program (380XD)

#1 Post by Saucey » Thu Oct 25, 2018 2:12 am

Hi everyone, I was wondering if anyone has the tpdemo folder or files for ThinkPads?
Its just a neat little software presentation from an OEM installation I found on an old TP of mine.
I might be wrong, but when I was installing files for my 600E using the drivers from Lenovo's backup, I couldn't find this file or folder.

Basically I was looking for these files/folder but I am not sure if it is part of a software package or only available during the preload.
I uploaded a 1080p video on youtube of the intro on my 380XD.
Right now my 380XD has a dead CD drive so I'll upload files by the weekend after I figure it out.

Just curious if others know where to find them, was looking for the 560E, but its no big deal.

You need the Preload Application CD for those models (part of the Recovery set).
Some more info: http://ps-2.kev009.com/pcpartnerinfo/ctstips/fe12.htm

Saucey, did you find a source for the TPDEMO folder?

I'm prepping to sell my 380XD and accessories, so I have the CD. I've extracted the TPDEMO folder and zipped it, available here:
https://ufile.io/cd7n9

The link should be good for 30 days. If someone has a better (and free) sharing solution, please let me know.

Thank you.
I would need to come across Preload CDs to get these demos.

I figure I could mirror the file with my Google Drive. :)
Will do it soon.
