INTRODUCTION

Quick Fax Cover Sheet (QFCS) is a convenient shareware program for printing
facsimile cover sheets under Windows 3.x. It allows the user to set up default
sender information which will load whenever QFCS is started as well as the option
to select alternate sender information. It also allows the user to set up a
database of frequently used receivers along with their fax numbers. Fax cover
sheets may also be saved to disk for later reference. The user may opt to engage
a log file to record details of all printed cover sheets. A Quick-Icon control
panel plus a graphical system to drag and drop Senders, Receivers and saved
cover sheets insures ease of use. All system specific fonts are supported as
well as provision for alignment adjustment. Custom logos and bitmaps may be
included on the cover sheet (requires 300 DPI non-postcript printer)
6 custom logos are included. All user configurable settings are saved in a
standard INI file format.

INSTALLATION
Execute INSTALL.EXE from within Windows. Install will create a sub-directory of your
choice, copy all distribution files and create a Program Manager Group for QFCS if
you desire OR you may manually copy all distribution files to the directory of your
choice (you may delete README.DOC after review).Use Windows Program Manager, the
Windows Setup program or an equivalent process to install. Requires VBRUN200.DLL,
not included. May be obtained from Compuserve and most major BBS's.

FIRST TIME USE
Complete help for first time use is available from the Help menu or by pressing the F1 key.

UPGRADING
If you have been using a version of QFCS older than V2.0, do not use your existing *.DAT
(Sender) files. A new field was added in V2.0 that provides for a description of the Sender,
if you try to load the existing file two error messages will result "Input Past End Of
File" & "File Already Open" - You will probably have to re-boot your system at this point
so DON'T USE OLD *.DAT FILES!. Erase your old *.DAT files before installation! The
RECEIVER.DB file is still compatible, however due to the file handling structure of V2.0+,
no other *.DB files other than RECEIVER.DB are usable. If you created other *.DB files for
different categories of receivers they will no longer be accessible from the program. When
re-installing - copy QFCS.EXE, QFCS.HLP, QFCS.IDX, DEFAULT.DAT, RECEIVER.DB, SAMPLE.FAX
STATUS.DLL, PSETUP.DLL, ENUMFONT.DLL, BTTNCUR.DLL and TOOLBUTT.VBX to a new subdirectory
and then copy your existing RECEIVER.DB into the subdirectory overwriting the new RECEIVER.DB
file. Any existing cover sheet .FAX files from version 2.0 may be loaded, however, only the
first line of notes text will be loaded since this version now has a single multi line text
box instead of the previous four single line boxes. Version 2.4 now requires four .DLL files
(STATUS.DLL, PSETUP.DLL, ENUMFONT.DLL & BTTNCUR.DLL) plus TOOLBUTT.VBX to function. Pre-existing
QFCS.INI or QFCSR.INI files may be deleted since, starting with V2.3, a standard INI file in
the Windows directory is created.

  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/
