This Patch takes out the initial beep and " Press any key to .... "
pause at the title screen of PCPLUS Version 2.0. The communications software
will automatically enter into terminal mode.

First, Make a copy of the PCPLUS.EXE, like PCPLUS.OLD.

Use Norton Utilities or the new Norton Disk Editor ( or equivilent ) and search
for the following HEX Digits on the file PCPLUS.EXE :

1) To remove the BEEP at the initial Title Screen:

Find : E8 BC 5E
Change To: 90 90 90

2) To remove the pause ( "Press any key to continue..." )

Find : E8 4F 8B
Change To : 90 90 90

Save the file and exit. Run PCPLUS and there should only be a slight delay
while the modem initialization string is sent to the modem, then the terminal
screen will come up, with a message "PROCOMM PLUS is ready."

I have not found a problem running Procomm Plus with this patch installed, but
there are no gurantees but if the patch was installed correctly, there should
not be any problems.
