=== NOTES on COPYINI ===

COPYINI will make a copy of you OS2.INI an OS2SYS.INI to a specified
directory. Both these ini-files contain a lot of empty space as a
result of the updating of records. COPYINI will result in much smaller

CHECKINI only takes one argument, the location where you want the new ini's
to be stored.

You could decide to let this location be your \OS2\INSTALL directory. In
that case whenever you keep ALT-F1 pressed when booting your PC these new
ini's will be copied to your \OS2 directory.

An alternate way to allow you to copy the new ini's is the boot from a
diskette and copy them manually.

Yet another way is to change the PROTSHELL line in the config.sys. If you
change it to PROTSHELL=X:\OS2\CMD.EXE (where X stands for you OS/2 drive)
when booting OS/2 you will not start the workplace shell but a CMD session.
From this session you can manually copy the ini's, and then start the
workplace shell by typing PMSHELL at the command line.

NOTE: When you use the method mentioned above a lot of programs (copyini
itself, but also checkini, will NOT work !)

  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:
