Ver. 2.3f (15/11/1994) Readme/What's new
Copyright (C) IBM Corporation, 1993 04/04/94 Group Folder - Dan Kehn (74140,3263) INSTALLATION First copy your GFOLDER.DLL file to a disk. For example, C:\OS2\DLL. Copy the Group Folder help file, GFOLDER.HLP, to your help directory, for example, C:\OS2\HELP. Then start the installation program, GFINST.EXE. It will prompt you for the path where your copied the GFOLDER.DLL. When the installation is complete, a new folder object called "Group Folder" will appear on your desktop. Double-click the Group Folder and select "Create standard groups" from the menu bar's Folder pulldown to create an example set of groups based on the objects included with OS/2. UPGRADING TO NEW VERSIONS OF THE GROUP FOLDER: The GFOLDER.DLL cannot be replaced while it is in use by the Workplace Shell. A simple way around this problem is to add the line below: CALL=C:\OS2\CMD.EXE to the top of your CONFIG.SYS file and reboot. A full screen session will be started before the Workplace Shell is started. Copy the new GFOLDER.DLL over the old and then EXIT to continue booting. Remember to remove (or comment out using REM) the line above in your CONFIG.SYS. ALSO INCLUDE IN THIS PACKAGE: Included with the package is GFOLDER.CMD. GFOLDER.CMD is the REXX equivalent of the installation utility GFINST.EXE. It shows how the REXX API can be used to create and modify the groups of GFolder. See "Programming API" in GFolder's online help for more details.  local copy
