copying or moving.

- DSETUP's menu seemed to blink all the time. Fixed.

gives around 98% of its time-slice back to DESQview, when idle.

+ {+} Registered-Only feature: Specifying the /M command-line,
anywhere on the command line, will cause DVCopy to move files, and
not copy them. DVCopy will move 4DOS description with files
themselves, if feature is enabled. It will also use fast-move (FAT
change) when move is done within the same drive.

* DVCopy 0.50 - Changes/Fixes from 0.20á:

+ External configuration added, to allow setting default parameters.
Configurable parts are Sharing-Under-DV, Sharing-OutSide-DV and
Floppy protection level. Configuration can also integrity check
DVCopy, install registration key, and print registration form.

+ You can now set DVCopy's performance (how much power will it give to
DESQview). This parameter is called 'Floppy Protection Level', and
can be defined from either configuration or DOS Environment Variable

+ You can now specify target file name, and not only directory. Also,
supports target file name that contains wildcards.

- DVCopy will try to recover from non-fatal errors in opening files,
and continue to next file - if any.

- DVCopy will no more ignore cases where disk is already full, and
will not continue write 0-sized files.
