This set of files performs an update of OLX version 2.1 and creates
OLX version 2.2.

It will only operate on a previously registered copy of OLX 2.1
and may only be used by paid licensees of OLX 2.1.



OLX v2.2 is a minor update which provides memory-management changes
and some cosmetic alterations only. It does not contain any additional

The update program consists of two parts, the executable patch
program (PATCH.EXE) and the patch data file (PATCH.RPT). The patch
data file contains all the information needed to make changes in
the old executable files and to track the application of patches,
even after multiple updates have been performed.

To perform the update follow these simple instructions:

1. Copy the two update files PATCH.EXE and PATCH.RPT to the
directory containing your OLX 2.1 executable files. All three
OLX executable files must be present including OLX.EXE, OLXED.EXE
and SLMR2OLX.EXE. If any of these files are missing the patch
program will not run.

2. Change to the OLX 2.1 directory and type PATCH and press .
3. A successful patch process results in the following screen
indicating that three files were patched:

We welcome your comments regarding this new method of providing minor
updates to some of our product line. Feel free to post a message on the
MSI HQ BBS with your feedback.

OLX v3 is on schedule for delivery around mid-year. The tentative list
of new features is impressive and will be published as soon as the
program enters alpha testing.

Enjoy OLX v2.2
