The following is information regarding the use of LapLink Pro
with OS/2 version 2. If you have questions regarding any of this
information please feel free to contact Technical Support at
206-483-8088 or post a message here.

SERIAL:

Versions of LapLink Pro prior to 4.0c are not compatible with
OS/2 version 2. LapLink Pro version 4.0c is compatible if you set
the serial port to "Polled" in the Port/Modem setup dialog.
Please contact us if you need this version.

Copying from a floppy drive to the hard drive, whether the drive
is HPFS (high performance file structure) or DOS, or copying
between two hard drives will work. Going between two floppy
drives does not work in the serial mode.

LapLink Pro will read and copy to and from the HPFS drive as long
as the file names are using the DOS limitation of eight
characters with a three character extension. File names longer
than the DOS limitation will not be seen by LapLink Pro.

PARALLEL:

All versions of LapLink Pro will work in the parallel mode with
all versions of OS/2.

Copying from a floppy drive to the hard drive, whether the drive
is HPFS (high performance file structure) or DOS, or copying
between two hard drives will work. For parallel transfers,
copying between two floppy drives should be fine. The same DOS
file name limitations of serial communications apply to parallel.

CLONING:

Because LapLink Pro doesn't copy hidden system files at the root
level, and the way OS/2 stores it's system files, LapLink Pro can
NOT be used to clone an OS/2 drive to another drive in order to
avoid the installation of OS/2 on the target machine.

MODEMS:

LapLink Pro's modem feature will not work with OS/2 at this time
because modem ports cannot be set to polled.

  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: http://www.os2museum.com/wp/mtswslnk/
