New TE/2 Installation Procedure
To install TE/2, simply extract the contents of the TE2_123.ZIP file
into a temporary directory or onto a floppy disk; change directory to
that path and type "TE2SETUP".
TE2SETUP presumes that you have REXX support installed. If you do not,
see notes below entitled "Manual Installation".
TE2SETUP will attempt to preserve your existing TE2.INI and other user
configurable files but, as with any software installation, you are
STRONGLY urged to back up your current setup before proceding!
After installing TE/2 via the TE2SETUP program, you may use TE2SETUP to do
some TE/2 configuration. TE2SETUP presumes that all of the modem setup
files are in a "Modems" subdirectory underneath your TE/2 program
directory; it also assumes that your TE2.INI file is named "TE2.INI"
and that it is similar in structure to the default version of this
file. Not every TE2.INI file setting can be modified with this
version of TE2SETUP but we hope that the basics have been covered. For
the less common settings, you will still need to modify TE2.INI directly
with a text editor.
If for some reason you cannot use TE2SETUP to install TE/2, you may install
manually by following these steps:
1. Create a directory for TE/2, recommended name is x:\TE2 (where "x"
is the drive letter. If you already have a previous version of TE/2
installed, use that directory but BACKUP your files first!
2. Unzip TE2_123.ZIP into your TE/2 directory.
3. Rename the file TE2INST.001 to TE2INST1.EXE.
4. Type "TE2INST1 * /o" to unpack all files and automatically overwrite
any files with the same name (leave off the "/o" and you will be
prompted on a file-by-file basis).
5. Delete TE2INST1.EXE.
6. Repeat steps 3.-5. with TE2INST.002. TE2INST.002 contains the user
configuration files, you can skip this step if you don't want to
replace your existing copies.
7. If you unpacked TE2INST.002, you will need to edit TE2.INI for your
setup, select a modem file, create a TE/2 program object, etc. See
TE2.INF for more information. You may view TE2.INF using the OS/2
Information Presentation Facility, VIEW.EXE. Simply type "VIEW TE2".
