Black Plague - Computer Circuit Cards

I have found all 3 cards needed.
I have trapped the infected in the server room.
I have the Computer manual (Server Installation Quick Start Guide) AND have read through it (all 2 pages) numerous times.

The problem I've encountered is discerning what Programs should be compiled together for each card. It's not explicitly stated in each programs description in the aforementioned manual what category (boot/network/interface) the program falls into.

I'm finding myself in a rudimentary exercise of permutations. Am I missing something in-game that states more concisely what program goes on what card?

I'm not asking for replies of what program belongs on what card, i am however asking what game play component i am missing that would give me this information, or is the "Computer manual" all that there is?

If I recall correctly the manual is the only thing you need. So read again and think about it for a bit Smile

Something very tricky to figure out with this puzzle, is that some program/programs, will need to be installed on more than just ONE card.

Everything should be in that note you find. Tells you how many programs e.t.c you need to have in each card, like anti virus, drivers e.t.c. It is a hard puzzle, I've only got 1 card done so far haha. Should be on the second page of the note.

@Jens



This puzzle is very frustrating and needs more than only the manual.

The manual doesn't contain the solution, you really have to know something about computer/admin/programming fuctions to solve this puzzle.

Of course, there is no other stuff what you can find to get hints. There's only the user manual, but to figure out this puzzle, you need some time and experiments.
