Update: A file that has a .PAT extension and defines changes to a
software program.

Target file: A file with an .EXE extension that is to be modified by an

UPATCH: Universal Update Program. A program that applies updates to
target files.

Note: UPATCH.EXE is shipped with Netware Lite v1.1 and
the Netware Lite v1.1 upgrade kit.



You need only one diskette to update all copies of NetWare Lite on your
NetWare Lite network. You do not need a separate diskette for each copy of
NetWare Lite.

Make backup copies of the files before running UPATCH. Do not update the
original NetWare Lite Program and Driver diskette files.

If a machine has a hard disk with NetWare Lite software, the files to be
updated are in the C:\NWLITE directory.

If a machine does not have a hard disk, the files to be updated are on the
workstation's floppy diskette that has the NetWare Lite CLIENT.EXE.

To get consistent results from the network, use UPATCH to update all copies
of NetWare Lite on the network (all servers and clients). If a server or
client is not updated, it will continue with the erratic behavior that the
update is designed to correct.

Review the section of this document that corresponds to the update to find
out what the update does. Each section describes what the update will be
applied to, the update date, the checksums, the problems the update
corrects, and the symptoms you may see before the update is applied.

You can use UPATCH to apply updates before or after running NetWare Lite,
but the changes do not take effect until the computer is rebooted and the
updated files are loaded into memory.



To update the SERVER or CLIENT software on a hard disk,

1. Copy the .PAT files into the NWLITE directory on the C drive.

2. To apply the update to the applicable target file, type "UPATCH" and
press .

3. When the DOS prompt appears, reboot the computer. The updated files
will be used when they are loaded into memory.

To update CLIENT software on a workstation that uses a floppy diskette,

1. Insert the diskette (w/updates) into drive A: (the floppy should
contain the .PAT files and UPATCH.EXE.

2. Insert the workstation's copy of the diskette that contains CLIENT.EXE
into drive B:. Do not update the original NetWare Lite diskettes.

3. At the DOS prompt, type "A:" and press .

4. Type "UPATCH B:CLIENT.EXE", press and follow the instructions
on the screen.

NOTE: The updates are applied to the CLIENT.EXE file and the
original file is retained with an .OLD file extension. If
necessary, the .OLD version can be renamed and executed.

5. When the DOS prompt appears, reboot the computer. The updated
CLIENT.EXE file will be used when it is loaded into memory.

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read:
