Welcome to QManager!
QManager is the most powerful tool for managing Netware queues under
Windows 3...and also the cheapest.
It has an attractive 3D graphics which makes the look and feel a pleasure.
I don't like, as you can see, to write documentation. I make my best but I'm a
programmer not a writer. Please excuse me for this and feel free to contact me
for everything you need for running QM on you network. My Compuserver address
Special thanks to:
Ken Billing (New Riders Publishing)
Mark A. Medici (Rutgers University)
John R. Link (I bought Norton Desktop just for testing QM...)
and to all the people who spent some of their time using QManager.
- Run in background
- Freely copy or move jobs from/to queues
- List jobs submitted by user or group
- Delete all jobs in one shot
and much more...
The installation process is not easy. Follow the instructions very carefully:
1. Copy QM.EXE in a directory of your choice.
- Be sure to use the latest version of NETWARE.DRV and VNETWARE.386 files (they
are located in the directory named SYSTEM.
QM uses this drivers for making the Netware shell calls. For your convenience
I included the latest versions I have together with QManager.
Check the NDD forum (GO NDD) on Compuserve for the latest Netware and Windows
- If QM is running in background and you change the default file server, before
re-using QM click on the "Update Now" button. In many case this won't be
necessary because, based on the time interval, QM will update itself to the new
file server selected. However if you switch back to QM before the time interval
is expired you can get an error if you don't "Update Now".
- You don't get any improvements in lowering the time interval. Left the value
to 60 seconds, which in my opinion is the best choice.
- Completely rewritten the user interface
- Now QM check to see if the default file server is changed
- Now QM runs in Standard Mode
- Clean-up of the code
- Minor bugs fixed
- I made my best to check every potential error but the error explanation given
is not very good. It is my intention to rewrite a new error manager as soon as
I begin to receive some feedback from you.
