    Description


    OS/2 2.0

    Workplace Shell

    The OS/2 2.0 Workplace Shell sets the standard for ease of use in the personal computer industry. The object-oriented approach allows users to manage many types of objects -- programs, data files, printers, network servers, and drives -- from a single interface called the Desktop. From the Desktop, users can directly manipulate objects so that printing, for example, becomes as simple as dragging and dropping a picture (or icon) representing a letter onto an icon representing a printer.

    The Workplace Shell not only works the way users do, it can look the way users want it to look. More flexible than ever, OS/2 2.0 allows users maximum freedom to customize their desktops, including colors, fonts, object locations and many other aspects of appearance. Desktops may look very different from one user environment to another and from one user to another.

    The Workplace Shell represents the culmination of earlier technologies, evolving over time from the command line to graphical icons, to the current object-oriented interface technology, which implements the workplace model defined by Common User Access (CUA) 91. OS/2 2.0 is the Systems Application Architecture (SAA) environment for the workstation. The Workplace Shell makes OS/2 2.0 an excellent desktop operating environment for all users today -- while advancing operating system technology for tomorrow.

    Integrating Platform

    The OS/2 2.0 Desktop provides a single environment from which a mixed set of applications -- DOS, Windows, 16-bit OS/2, and 32-bit OS/2 -- can be started. Users can display most of these applications and their corresponding data simultaneously. OS/2 2.0 automatically manages system resources such as memory, the processor, hardware devices, programs, and data files on behalf of all types of applications running concurrently on the system.

    Concurrent Execution:
    OS/2 2.0 supports the concurrent execution of tasks, permitting users to perform other tasks while one or many other tasks are processing. This reduction in waiting time improves user response times and efficiency. Depending on the display adapter installed, users generally can run their applications windowed or full screen, in graphics or text modes, and in the foreground or background. Full-screen operation in the foreground may be required or preferred for some advanced graphical applications where performance or timing are considerations.

    Interprogram Communication:
    "Cut and paste" can be performed easily across all types of applications, reducing the need for manual transfers of data and the resulting risk of errors. Dynamic Data Exchange (DDE) is supported between Windows and OS/2 Presentation Manager applications. Object linking and embedding (OLE) is supported between Windows applications.

    Printing:
    Each printer is represented on the OS/2 Desktop by a Print object, enabling users to drag and drop print jobs onto any local or remote printer on the network. This smooth, integrated operation allows users to improve their productivity by significantly decreasing the number of steps needed to print.

    Network Support:
    OS/2 2.0 meets the needs of today's users who work in interconnected environments. OS/2 2.0 provides robust networking and client-server capabilities, underscoring the benefits derived from IBM's unique systems know-how. Network servers, such as the IBM LAN Server and the Novell Netware server, are represented as objects on the OS/2 Desktop, allowing users to access the services of both local and remote servers with ease. When access is needed, OS/2 2.0 prompts users for information, so they no longer must remember complex commands.

    In addition, users no longer need assign driver letters or port names to use the resources on the network. From the OS/2 Desktop, users can browse servers for shared resources; they can browse shared disks for files and programs and they can browse shared printers to manage print jobs. Resource usage is reduced because no connection is required.

    Application and System Protection:
    In addition to being the desktop operating system of choice, OS/2 2.0 is the platform ideally suited for running mission-critical and line-of-business applications. OS/2 2.0 is a protected system and application environment. Each application is encapsulated in its own address space and cannot access system or other application data. DOS and Windows sessions run in the protected mode of the 80386 processor. If a Windows or DOS application (running in a window) attempts to violate the integrity of the system, the application will be ended gracefully without affecting the system and other executing applications. And, if DOS or Windows applications fail (e.g. Unrecoverable Application Errors (UAEs)), that DOS session can be closed and restarted easily without affecting the other applications running on the system.

    Multimedia Applications:
    OS/2 2.0 supports applications that utilize OS/2 and Windows multimedia extensions, allowing users to integrate multimedia applications into their environment.

    Application Compatibility

    A very broad range of the current 17,000 DOS applications, 4,900 Windows applications, and 2,500 16-bit OS/2 applications will run unchanged on OS/2 2.0. This vast assortment of applications permits users to choose the applications that provide the most effective solutions to their needs. This means that businesses do not need to invest in new applications and training right away. And, they can migrate to the emerging, more powerful, 32-bit OS/2 applications as their needs grow.

    IBM has subjected leading applications, based on market share and use of specialized functions, to rigorous testing. In addition, a large number of users have beta-tested their applications on early versions of the OS/2 2.0 product. IBM is aware of a very small number of applications, such as those that could compromise the integrity of the system or those requiring extremely high interrupt rates (typically, greater than 1000 interrupts per second) that will not operate properly. Other applications may run with limited function or may require special settings. Refer to the "OS/2 Compatibility Information" in the OS/2 2.0 package for details.

    Version-Specific DOS:
    There are some applications that must run on a specific version of DOS because they require characteristics unique to that version. Therefore, OS/2 2.0 allows users to boot (start) specific versions of DOS, such as 3.3, 4.0, and 5.0 or DRDOS 6.0 in a DOS session. This capability helps to ensure compatibility with DOS version-specific applications and device drivers, including block device drivers (such as LAN requesters) needed for network support.

    Boot Manager:
    OS/2 2.0 allows users to boot (start) multiple operating systems, such as DOS 3.3, 4.0, and 5.0; DRDOS 6.0; and OS/2 1.3, on the same hardware system on which OS/2 2.0 is installed. This ability to boot multiple operating systems allows applications requiring a specific operating system to run on a single hardware configuration. The Boot Manager feature also allows businesses with large numbers of users migrating from one release to another to fully test the new environment while the old environment continues to be operational.

    Memory Extenders:
    OS/2 2.0 provides portability for the current set of DOS applications by adhering to current industry standards for personal computing. The ability of OS/2 2.0 to execute DOS applications that use XMS, EMS, and DPMI (level .9) prevents existing DOS applications from becoming obsolete due to migration to OS/2 2.0. While EMS is fully supported, performance is optimized for XMS and DPMI.

    Adobe Type Manager:
    OS/2 2.0 includes the Adobe Type Manager, which supports industry-standard ATM fonts for both Windows and Presentation Manager applications. Support for Windows applications requiring ATM fonts allows users to run their applications under OS/2 2.0 without having to purchase and install the ATM for Windows. A selection of popular ATM fonts (Type 1) is also included.

    Installation

    Rich colors, icons, progress indicators, and status information all help to guide users easily through the new OS/2 2.0 graphical installation. When installing over DOS, Windows, or a previous version of OS/2, applications and other environmental conditions are preserved or migrated to the OS/2 environment.

    Users can choose from two preselected installations, one that is optimal for most users and another, which will install the complete system. A third installation option enables users to install only the functions they need, thereby reducing hard disk requirements. While a 60MB hard disk is required, actual hard disk requirements range from 15-30MB, depending on the installation options selected.

    OS/2 2.0 also supports installation from a response file. The response file is a very efficient way of installing the system on many machines that need to be configured in the same way by allowing a system administrator to pre-select the installation options. Both the response file and the ability to install OS/2 2.0 from any drive, including a LAN, help to reduce user involvement in the installation. Refer to OS/2 Version 2.0 Remote Installation and Maintenance (Red Book) GG24-3780, which is separately available.

    Migration

    During installation, OS/2 automatically migrates existing DOS, Windows, and OS/2 environments, mapping them to the OS/2 2.0 environment. In addition, OS/2 2.0 contains profiles of more than 225 of the most popular DOS and Windows applications, which are placed in the appropriate DOS or Windows folders on the OS/2 Desktop; OS/2 1.x groups are mapped to OS/2 2.0 folders on the Desktop. OS/2 2.0 also takes care of the special settings required by a few of the 225 DOS and Windows applications. This migration process also includes the supporting DOS, Windows, and 16-bit OS/2 device drivers and printer definitions as well as the other applications on the hard disk. Users can achieve the look of OS/2 Version 1.3 to help them migrate to the Workplace Shell. Refer to the Workplace Shell section of this document.

    Online Help and Information

    The "Start Here" icon on the OS/2 Desktop contains a selectable list of the tasks users perform most frequently, such as adding and using programs, finding information, printing, and shutting down their systems. Users can select the task they need to perform and will be taken directly to the procedure for accomplishing it in the Master Help Index. An online glossary of terms is also available.

    Online help and information is available at any time and provides users with instant explanations of OS/2 2.0 functions, eliminating the need to keep a manual nearby. The online, interactive tutorial teaches users how to use a mouse, how to work with objects, how to optimize the windowed environment, and how to use the online help and information.

    The Master Help Index contains an alphabetic, selectable list of topics, enabling users to quickly locate instructions for completing any task supported by the OS/2 2.0 product. Each topic contains hypertext links, allowing users to select a topic of choice and view related information immediately. Topics can also be searched and printed easily.

    Productivity Aids and Games

    The productivity aids and games (applets) included with OS/2 2.0 provide a basic level of program function, and are intended to help users learn how to use the system and be productive immediately.

    Productivity aids -- A calculator, a calendar, a notepad, and a sticky pad help users perform and manage their daily tasks. A to-do list helps to remind users of things they need to do, and an alarm helps to make sure that they do them on time. Daily and monthly planning programs help users keep track of upcoming events. PM Terminal opens up a new experience for users unfamiliar with the world of online databases and bulletin boards. The Enhanced Editor and the PM Chart programs are useful for daily tasks and presentations. In all, 18 productivity applets are included.

    Games -- The games provide entertainment and help users unfamiliar with a mouse to practice their skills. The computer will give users a run for their money if they try to defeat it at OS/2 Chess. Klondike-style Solitaire is a favorite, along with Jigsaw, Scramble, and Reversi.

    Hardware Exploitation

    OS/2 2.0 is supported on personal computers with an 80386SX (or compatible) or higher processor, with at least 4MB of memory and a 60MB hard disk with 15-30 MB of free space. See the section OS/2 2.0 Service and Support for details.

    IBM has tested key functions of the OS/2 2.0 product, based on selected model configurations provided by the manufacturer of non-IBM hardware systems. Testing results are available on CompuServe, the National Support Center Bulletin Board System, the OS/2 Bulletin Board System, and IBMLINK.

    Printers:
    OS/2 2.0 supports a broad range of printers, producing high-quality printed output from OS/2, Windows, and DOS applications. OS/2 2.0 exploits the printers customers use most, including IBM, Hewlett-Packard, Epson, and Panasonic, and many others. In addition, OS/2 2.0 includes a corresponding set of the most popular Windows printer drivers. The multitasking capabilities of OS/2 2.0 allow users to save time by running all their DOS, Windows, and OS/2 printing jobs in the background.

    Display Adapters:
    OS/2 2.0 supports a wide variety of DOS, Windows, and OS/2 applications running side by side in windowed sessions when the primary display adapter (including adapters that support SVGA modes) is configured for VGA mode. OS/2 2.0 supports DOS applications running side by side in windowed sessions in most SVGA modes on certain display adapters. OS/2 2.0 also supports text-based DOS applications running side by side in windowed sessions when the display adapter is configured for XGA or 8514A modes. Broader support for high-resolution modes (higher than 640x480x16) will be provided over time. In addition, IBM is working with the manufacturers of popular boards to assist them in making their Windows and Presentation Manager drivers available. Information will be available on CompuServe, the National Support Center Bulletin Board System, the OS/2 Bulletin Board System, and IBMLINK.

    Other Peripheral Devices:
    OS/2 2.0 supports a broad range of hardware devices, including hard disk drives, diskette drives, tape drives, CD-ROM drives, optical disk drives, display adapters, and pointing devices. Support for devices utilizing the Small Computer System Interface (SCSI) has been improved to include the chaining of commands, significantly improving throughput. In addition, OS/2 2.0 provides a complete SCSI solution by supporting both the MicroChannel and PC-bus-based architectures.

    Currently, unless Extended Services Communications Manager is installed, a Token Ring card is required for each 3270 communications session.

    Some FAX and sound adapters are extremely timing sensitive, requiring more than 1000 interrupts per second. These adapters may not operate successfully in DOS sessions.

    OS/2 2.0 allows all applications to access disks formatted with the High-Performance File System (HPFS) and enhanced FAT file system. The enhanced FAT file system provides better performance than FAT, and the HPFS provides extremely fast access to very large disk volumes. In addition, the 2GB limitation on the size of each disk volume has been raised. Theoretically, the new limit is 64GB, but a practical, usable size is 5-7 GB (per volume). This support for very large disk volumes increases the productivity of network administrators, who no longer must continually move and delete data to free disk space.

    System Performance

    OS/2 2.0 allows application developers to create applications that exploit the 32-bit architecture. These capabilities include 32-bit instructions and data addressing, a flat memory model capable of supporting programs having address spaces as large as 512 MB, the interrupt and task switching managers needed to accommodate 32-bit save and restore operations, and an enhanced 32-bit loader. Most 32-bit applications perform faster on OS/2 2.0 than their 16-bit counterparts. Over time, as more applications are written to take advantage of the power of 32-bit OS/2 2.0, additional performance improvements should be realized.

    The ability of OS/2 2.0 to run multiple tasks concurrently helps to improve the productivity of users because tasks that previously were performed end to end can now be run in parallel. 32-bit OS/2 2.0 was designed to run in a minimum of 4MB of memory, and in that environment, the benefits of concurrent tasking can be realized. However, to unleash the power of complex applications running in multitasking environments, hardware should not be a constraint.

    Combinations of all types of applications -- DOS, Windows, and OS/2 -- running together on the system benefit from the predictable performance of the OS/2 2.0 environment. This is because OS/2 2.0 is designed to run all applications with performance equal to or better than they run in their native environments.

    Unlike the cooperative multitasking used by Windows applications, which depends on applications voluntarily sharing system resources with other applications (and which must be written specifically to share resources), the preemptive multitasking scheme implemented by OS/2 2.0, reserves control for the system itself, thereby balancing the performance of all the applications running on the system.

    Extended Services

    Extended Services, together with the companion product SAA Distributed Database Connection Services/2 (DDCS/2), meets the needs of OS/2 users who require access from intelligent workstations to relational databases and other communications services located locally on the workstation, across a LAN, on a remote system or host platform. Extended Services is comprised of three components: Communications Manager, Database Manager, and Query Manager. DDCS/2 is a separate product.

    Advantages common to the Extended Services components include:

    Communications Manager (CM)

    The Communications Manager component of Extended Services provides extensive support for terminal emulation, diverse connectivities using several different protocols, traditional and peer networking, and gateways all within a single offering, yet tailorable to the individual requirements of each user. By utilizing the advanced capabilities of OS/2, the functions of Communications Manager can be run simultaneously as a reliable service to the users. In addition, Communications Manager has powerful support for application developers, system, and network administrators.

    Database Manager

    The Extended Services Database Manager is an integrated host and desk top relational database providing consistency with IBM's SAA-related family of database products. Two versions of Extended Services are offered. The Extended Services for OS/2 is a single user package which provides native database capabilities to either a stand-alone or LAN-attached workstation. This version can also be configured as a client to a remote database server installed on the LAN or to the host. Extended Services with Database Server for OS/2 is the server version of the product providing database support to DOS, Windows or OS/2 client workstations through its client enabler Distributed Feature. Access to host databases is possible for either version with the IBM SAA Distributed Database Connection Services/2 (DDCS/2) program product.

    DDCS/2

    IBM's SAA Distributed Database Connection Services/2 product is a separately packaged product that, when installed with Extended Services, provides transparent access to IBM's relational database family of products. Read/write connection is provided to the appropriate version of DB2, SQL/DS or OS/400 host databases.

    DDCS/2 comes in either a single-user or multi-user version. The single-user version can be installed on either version of Extended Services for host access by that workstation. The multi-user version can be installed only on the Extended Services with Database Server for OS/2 product and provides host access for DOS, Windows or OS/2 clients.

    Other modems which comply to the Hayes Attention Command Set or to the V.25bis standard are, with some limitations, also supported by the Extended Services Communications Manager. For example, the IBM 7855 Modem is supported in a Hayes-compatible mode; however, its full V.32 function set is not available under Extended Services.

    Synchronous Modem Support - Communications Manager supports IBM modems conforming to the CCITT V.25/V.28 (EIARS232D) interface standards, and also vendor modems which are IBM-compatible and conform to those same standards.

    Planning Information

    Memory and Hard File Estimating Worksheets

    The following worksheets may be used to help determine hardware capacity requirements for OS/2 configurations. To estimate requirements, add the recommended memory or hard file size for the base operating system and the Extended Services functions and components desired. These totals plus sufficient buffer must be added to the capacity in Mbytes required for other user applications and the requirements for user data.

    The numbers shown in the worksheets give the recommended memory size in Mbytes for concurrent operation of the functions listed and not the total size of all the code and data areas that comprise the functions. The quantities shown assume an acceptable degree of swapping. Refer to the Memory Management Techniques in the Extended Services Information and Planning Guide for a description of the method used to develop these quantities as well as for more detail and reference scenarios.

    Some users may begin to tax the capacity of their available workstations and servers as function is increased. In some situations it may be desirable to move to faster and higher capacity hardware to maintain desired performance.

    Notes

    1. Automatically installed but removable by changing the PROTECTONLY=NO statement in the CONFIG.SYS file to PROTECTIONLY=YES. This memory is optionally available to OS/2 applications whenever the DOS mode is in the background.
    2. Under OS/2 2.0, the amount of memory needed per DOS session is dependent upon the DOS application characteristics, particularly its use of Extended, Expanded, or DPMI memory.
    3. This additional system memory allows better performance in transient conditions such as program loading, program termination, and print spooling.
    4. If the 3270 connection is LAN, SDLC, or X.25 (that is, not a DFT coaxial connection), also include APPC.
    5. APPC is a prerequisite for this function. (Add the APPC recommended memory to the total only once.)
    6. Concurrent file-transfer function requires 0.3MB for each session.
    7. Database client or OS/2 NETBIOS Database Client Application Enabler.
    8. Database server includes 1 MB buffer pool. More or less may be required depending on the workload.
    9. DDCS/2 multi-user requires the Extended Services with Database Server Database Manager. DDCS/2 single user can be installed on either version of Extended Services. Both configurations require Extended Services Communications Manager and APPC.
    10. Dependent on the application and user. See application documentation.

    Notes:

    1. Approximate total of several individually selectable options.
    2. A 2 MB to 10 MB swap area is adequate for many environments. However, swap area is dynamically allocated as applications require more memory than is available. A swap data set larger or smaller than shown may be needed.
    3. This storage is required in the operating system primary (boot) partition.
    4. If the 3270 connection is LAN, SDLC, or X.25 (that is, not a DFT coaxial connection), also include APPC.
    5. APPC is required for this function. (Include the APPC requirement in the calculations only once.)
    6. These features are installed, by default, using Basic or Advanced Install. They may be later removed. The features are optionally installed when Custom Install is used.
    7. Database client or OS/2 NETBIOS Database Client Application Enabler. If OS/2 NETBIOS Database Client Application Enabler package is installed, it is not necessary to include the Extended Services base.
    8. If Database Server is configured to use APPC, for example to support DDCS/2 or Extended Edition 1.3 clients, include CM Base and APPC. If DOS Database Requester is installed on the server, add 1.2 MB.
    9. This number is table definitions and internal structures for each database and does not include user data. It is subject to many variables. Actual requirements may differ.
    10. DDCS/2 single user does not require Database Server. DDCS/2 multi-user does require Database Server. However, DDCS/2 single user and multi-user require Communications Manger base and APPC.
    11. Dependent on the application and user. See application documentation.

    LAN Server 2.0

    Seven productivity aids are included in the OS/2 LAN Server 2.0 package. The aids provide the following functions:

    Memory and DASD

    MEMORY AND FIXED-DISK ESTIMATING WORKSHEETS

    Use the following worksheets as guidelines in determining the memory and fixed-disk requirements for each server or requester workstation on your network. Add the size required for the server or requester product to the size required for the operating system (the OS/2 program for OS/2 LAN Server and OS/2 LAN Requester; DOS for DOS LAN Requester) and the size required for each application. Include an allowance for user application data. Refer to "Hardware, Memory, and Fixed-Disk Requirements" in the LAN Server Network Administrator Reference Volume 2 for considerations regarding memory and fixed-disk size.

    Fixed-disk requirements for workstations on your network are changed if you follow the advanced installation path during installation or if you provide users of workstations with custom installation diskettes. In both cases, more efficient use can be made of the available fixed-disk space, because only the code relevant to the components or functions you specified is installed. Note, however, that the advanced path also allows you to install more functions, which may cause your workstation to require more fixed-disk space. In the following worksheets, requirements for OS/2 LAN Server and OS/2 LAN Requester are given for each installable function, so that you can easily determine how much memory or fixed-disk space your particular workstation requires.

    The memory requirement is less if the user does not run all installed functions and applications concurrently. System memory requirements are based only on applications and functions that run concurrently. Note also that memory requirements vary from application to application and depend on the conditions under which each application is used.

    Using less than the recommended memory may increase the time required to switch from one function or application to another, reduce keystroke responsiveness, or reduce throughput. For the impact of caching, buffers, and tuning, refer to the LAN Server Network Administrator Reference Volume 2: Performance Tuning.

    If you have more than one fixed disk on your workstation, the LAN Services installation/configuration program allows you to select the fixed disk on which to install LAN Services. Note, however, that User Profile Management, LAN Adapter and Protocol Support, and First Failure Support Technology/2 are always installed on the boot drive.

    OS/2 2.0 Tools for Application Development

    IBM OS/2 2.0 tools for application development provide a complete 32-bit C-language application development environment. With these tools, the developer can take full advantage of the rich programming interface in OS/2 2.0. The tools are packaged to allow the application developer to start up on OS/2 2.0 with a small investment and continue to use their own favorite tools. There are productivity and technological gains to be made by moving all development work to OS/2 2.0 and moving up to 32-bit object-based application development for OS/2 2.0.

    The Development Platform of Choice

    The power and performance of preemptive multitasking coupled with application protection make OS/2 2.0 the right system for application development. In a multitasking system with the developer managing a number of projects, some of which are being debugged and experiencing failures, it is essential that system integrity be maintained. OS/2 2.0 provides the power and integrity to handle this environment. Development for 32-bit OS/2, for 16-bit OS/2, and for DOS/Windows can co-exist on OS/2 2.0. IBM WorkFrame/2 makes the job easier by organizing the developer's projects and integrating preferred tools into a single, easy to use, graphical environment.

    Powerful 32-bit Application Programming Interface

    OS/2 2.0 has a rich and powerful programming interface designed to take application development into the future. The System Object Model (SOM), which is used to build the Workplace Shell, enables developers to fully integrate their applications into the Workplace Shell using object-oriented technology. Via Workplace Shell APIs, the application's objects derive all the benefits of the Workplace functions such as drag-drop. Using the SOM Compiler, the C-language programmer can extend this function and define new class libraries. The IBM OS/2 2.0 Application Design Guide explains how to build OS/2 Workplace Shell and SOM enabled applications while maximizing performance with 32-bit memory management, multithreading, interprocess communications, preemptive multitasking, and other features of OS/2 2.0.

    The IBM Developer's Toolkit for OS/2 2.0 and the IBM OS/2 2.0 Technical Library enable the application developer to take full advantage of the OS/2 2.0 programming interface. The Toolkit provides essential tools such as the PM Resource Compiler, the IPF Compiler, and the SOM Compiler. The Toolkit also includes the API Reference in online form, sample programs that demonstrate the use of the new APIs, the required header and .LIB files, and kernel debug support. The Technical Library supplements the Toolkit with programming guides, API references in printed form, and additional information about REXX, CUA, and device driver development. All of these books, including the Application Design Guide, may be purchased as a group in the Library or individually.

    Application Performance and Programmer Productivity

    High performance code optimization in the IBM C Set/2 C compiler provides the opportunity to produce some of the highest-performing OS/2 based applications possible. Extensive runtime library support, online hypertext reference information, conformance to ANSI and SAA standards, and a fully graphical full-function source-level PM debugger all make C Set/2 an excellent choice for developing 32-bit OS/2 2.0 applications. Organizing C Set/2 projects in WorkFrame/2 further enhances programmer productivity.

    Protecting Investment in 16-bit Code

    Mixed-mode programming techniques supported by OS/2 2.0 and C Set/2 enable the integration of 16-bit code into 32-bit programs. For example, the user may continue to develop panels using Dialog Manager, a 16-bit Presentation Manager interface previously provided in the IBM OS/2 Programming Tools and Information Version 1.3; this code can be incorporated into a 32-bit executable that takes advantage of the 32-bit interface provided by OS/2 2.0. Both the 32-bit development environment (C Set/2 with tools) and the 16-bit development environment (a 16-bit compiler with tools) can be installed in WorkFrame/2 to enhance productivity in the mixed-mode environment.

    NOTES:

    1. These portables were tested with the latest release of the power management drivers. (Version 1.03 L40, Version 1.10 N51, Version 1.00 CL57SX)

    2. Users are advised that the OS/2 version of Corel Draw uses a lot of system resources while printing. They are recommended to save their work frequently, exit the application, and restart CorelDraw, in order to circumvent this problem. The problem will be fixed with the 32 bit release of CorelDraw later in the year.

    3. Word for windows Version 1.1 must be installed in a DOS session. This problem is resolved in Word for Windows Version 2.0.

    4. To install Corel Draw V2.01:

      1. Start a DOS session.

      2. Type FFIX /date.

      3. Type WINOS2

      4. Install the application.

      5. Exit WIN-OS/2.

      6. Type FFIX /u.

    5. When installing Harvard Graphics and Harvard Draw under WIN-OS/2 you will receive several erroneously displayed error dialog boxes. Select OK in the dialog box, and the installation will complete successfully.

    6. Use the migrate utility once PC/3270 has been installed. Then set the VIDEO_MODE_RESTRICTION DOS setting to CGA.

    7. Set the DPMI_MEMORY_LIMIT DOS setting to a minimum of 3MB.

    8. Users are advised that the help index and keyboard help functions of Excel V3.0 behave unpredictably, and should refer to the manual instead.

    9. Due to some changes made to system fonts, in order to comply with some new European standards, users with XGA and 8515/8516 displays may find that text in some of the dialog boxes displayed with this application is clipped. Microsoft have been informed of the problem.

    10. This product is also built into WIN-OS/2. Fonts can be found on printer device driver diskette 5.

    11. Word Perfect 5.1 for Windows will only run on OS/2 Version 2.0 Standard Edition if the following procedure is followed. Open a DOS session, change to the Word Perfect directory, and type FIXWP WPWINFIL.EXE. This will modify the program to allow it to run.

    12. Early copies of this product do not allow the user to access the menus. If you are affected, contact Microsoft for a new PMWORDU.DLL file which rectifies the problem.

    13. Freelance for OS/2 may not install under OS/2 Version 2.0 Standard Edition. Contact Lotus Customer support for a new INSTALL.EXE which rectifies this problem.

    14. Some files may not print correctly to the Epson LQ2550 printer. Corel have been notified of the problem, and the problem will be fixed in the 32 bit version of Corel Draw due for release later in the year.

    15. It is recommended that only a limited set of printer fonts are enabled on the IBM 2390 printers.

    16. A system error may be generated if files are printed in 360 dpi mode to the IBM 2390 printer from PM Word. It is recommended that a lower resolution is used with this application.

    17. Some graphical print jobs may not print successfully with Aldus Pagemaker and the HP Paintjet driver. This will be resolved when the 32 bit graphics engine is released, later in the year.

    18. The gridlines from this application may not be printed on XGA systems to colour printers. By selecting /WGSCGC (for the UK product), the problem is resolved. Lotus have been contacted, and agreed that a fix will be implemented in their next release of the product.

    19. The Courier font may not print reliably on this printer. This will be resolved by the 32 bit Graphics Engine, later in the year.

    20. This adapter may give poor screen update time. This problem is under investigation, and it is hoped that it will be resolved shortly.

    21. Users may find that this adapter gives poor response times. The problem is under investigation, and a fix will be produced in a future release.

    22. In order to use this application under OS/2 Version 2.0 Standard Edition.

      1. Drag a program template from the templates folder.

      2. Set the program type to DOS Full Screen.

        install.exe,3,40,255
        lotus.exe,3,40,255
        

      5. Increase the DPMI_MEMORY_LIMIT (to 4MB)

    26. Users should be aware that NLS characters cannot be entered in certain workplace shell panels, by pressing the Alt key and entering the ASCII sequence. This is due to the use of certain Alt sequences for navigation in the Workplace shell settings notebook.

    27. Version 2.01 of this product will be released shortly.

    28. This printer was tested with the IBM 5202 driver, with Printer fonts set to Not available.
