Rover Pack v. 2.70 (7/4/1999) Readme/What's new
Rover Pack (tm) for OS/2 from Sundial Systems Release Notes (README.TXT) for Version 2.70 April 1999 Thank you for trying Version 2.7 of the Rover Pack for OS/2. This file contains the latest information about this release. What is Version 2.7? Version 2.7 is the first release of the Rover Pack by Sundial Systems. However, the Rover Pack was created by Sundial Systems and Orange Hill Software based on technology and features previously available in earlier Orange Hill Software products such as the Workplace Solution. The Rover Pack reflects that heritage (thus the version number) while also providing significant new features (thus the new name). Installation To install the Rover Pack, just run the Install program provided with the package and follow the instructions. The details can be found in the "Overview and Installation Guide." The installation program gives you the option of viewing this information before the actual installation begins. You can also view the guide without the Install program by using the following command (from the product distribution diskette or the directory where you have unzipped a downloaded copy): view rpkinstl.inf If you have an earlier Orange Hill Software product installed, be sure to consult the guide before installing the Rover Pack so that you can review the options you have for upgrading your existing installation. If you need to uninstall the Rover Pack at some future point in time, make sure none of the Rover Pack components are in use, then simply delete the directory where the software is installed (including its subdirectories) and also delete the main (Desktop) Rover Pack folder. The easiest way to do this is by dragging each of these folders to the Shredder. OS/2, Presentation Manager, and Workplace Shell Compatibility: The Rover Pack is designed specifically for use with OS/2 Warp Versions 3 and 4. This includes all of the following releases: OS/2 Warp 4 "General Availability" release OS/2 Warp Server "General Availability" release OS/2 Warp Connect "Red Box" (for use with Windows) release "Blue Box" (with Win-OS2) release OS/2 Warp (OS/2 Version 3) "Red Box" (for use with Windows) release "Full Pack" (with Win-OS2) release Most "FixPak" levels of OS/2 Warp, Warp Connect, and Warp Server have also been tested. Limitations Listed below are some known limitations which may impact your use of the current version of the Rover Pack: * While the Rover Pack enhances your use of the Workplace Shell, it does this without making modifications to the Shell (such as registering class extensions or installing hooks). Thus, the Rover Pack should not conflict with other Workplace Shell extension or enhancement products which you have installed. However, because Sundial Systems cannot possibly test all such variations of all such products especially as they are updated by the vendors involved, the Rover Pack cannot be expected to operate error free in all such situations. If you suspect the existence of such a problem, please contact Support Services and provide a detailed list of the Workplace Shell related products which you have installed -- including version numbers or "fixpak" levels as appropriate. * The various other members of the Sundial Systems family of OS/2 products automatically appear within the Retriever's menus and in the Project Master facility. When such an option is disabled, it generally means that the corresponding product is not installed on your system. However, the Clearlook option will always be disabled after you install the Rover Pack or after you install Clearlook 1.x. The reason for this is that the Clearlook 1.x installation procedure does not leave sufficient information on your system for Clearlook to be found automatically by the Rover Pack. To correct this, a special utility program is included in the Rover Pack distribution. This program will do a search of your desktop to find a Clearlook 1.x installation and provide the Rover Pack with the information it needs. To use the utility, simply run: clsearch from the Rover Pack diskette (or the directory where you have unzipped a downloaded copy). You may need to repeat this procedure if you reinstall Clearlook. * Similarly, if you have manually recreated the program objects associated with the various Sundial Systems products, the Rover Pack Retriever may not recognize these objects correctly. In this case, the menu options for those products in the Retriever will be disabled. Generally, reinstalling the product in question (or having the product's installation program recreate the desktop objects where that is an option) will correct the problem. Alternatively, you can contact Sundial Systems Support Services for instructions on how to make Rover aware of the program objects you have created manually. Please do so by email and be sure to include (1) which product and version is involved and (2) the exact name of the program object you are using to start the product. * There is a known problem that in some circumstances causes an erroneous error message to be displayed when opening the OS/2 Toolbar (also known as the Launch Pad) under Warp 4. This message can be safely ignored -- simply OK the error and continue. This will be corrected in a future release.
