Output of file : INSTRUCT.FIX contained in archive : 21WPSF.ZIP

June 18, 1993. Instructions for installation of OS/2 2.1 PMWP.DLL fix.

Boot OS/2 2.1 from the Install diskette, and insert Disk 1 when requested.
At the first installation welcome panel, press the Esc key to exit to a
command prompt.

Change the current drive and current directory to the location of the
3 fix files - APPLYFIX.CMD, PATCH.EXE and PATCH.RTP. This may be on a
diskette or hard drive dependant on where you chose to place these fix
files when you received them.

Type the following command
applyfix c:
where "c:" is the harddisk that OS/2 2.1 has been installed to.

The applyfix program will replace the PMWP.DLL in the \OS2\DLL directory,
and will create a backup copy in \OS2\ARCHIVE\OS2\DLL. This backup copy
will be needed if any future fixes are to be applied - it is suggested you
keep this backup copy on diskette should you need to delete the backup
from your harddisk.

This PMWP.DLL fixes the following problem :

1. APAR PJ08808 - When installing 2.1 over an earlier version of OS/2
without formatting, the system may reboot to a white screen and
fail to bring up the desktop.

2. APAR PJ08727 - The final "shutdown complete" message is displayed
underneath the "shutdown please wait" message on some systems.

3. APAR PJ08606 - Mass duplication of template objects after creating
a shadow.

  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:
