README.TXT for NDW 3.0 Compatibility Update Disk
Symantec Service and Support Center
April, 1994

Dear Norton Desktop for Windows Customer:

We are pleased to provide this Compatibility Update Disk for Norton
Desktop for Windows 3.0 that you requested.

This disk can only be used on local (non-network) installations of
Norton Desktop. If you are running either Windows or Norton Desktop
from a shared network installation, contact Symantec Customer
Service at (800) 441-7234 between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. PST to receive
a replacement disk set.

IMPORTANT: This update is for U.S. English and International English
versions of NDW 3.0 only.

To install the Update, insert the diskette into the appropriate drive,
go to the File menu in Norton Desktop, select Run and type:

a:install (or b:install)

NOTE: You must install the Update from within Windows.

The install program will copy the appropriate files to your NDW directory,
and then automatically exit Windows to run a DOS batch file that it

The DOS part of the update process may take up to 10 minutes or more,
depending on the speed of your system. During this process, you will see
the files being updated on your screen. When the update process is
complete, a report will be displayed with the message: "Update successful!"
At this point, press any key to return to Windows.

NOTE: You may see an indication on the screen that certain files were
ignored or skipped. This is normal if you have performed a
custom installation or modified your Norton AntiVirus configuration.

After the update is complete and you are returned to Windows, you must
manually update the NAVTSR program:

1. Run the Norton AntiVirus program, either by double-clicking its
icon or selecting it from the Tools menu.
2. Press the large Options button.
3. Choose Auto-Protect from the list on the left.
4. Toggle the Run checkbox to unchecked (default is checked) or
checked if unchecked.
5. Press the OK button on the right.
6. Press the EXIT button on the right.
7. This will update the DOS and Windows NAVTSR programs.
8. Then simply repeat Steps 1-6 above to return your Norton AntiVirus
settings back to their original state.

If you have Microsoft Word for Windows, you will be prompted to configure
the FileAssist macros.

Note: If you have already configured FileAssist for Word, you must do so
again at this time. Failure to reconfigure the FileAssist macros may
result in WordBasic errors or errors when opening or saving files.

If you already have FileOpen, FileSave, FileSaveAs, and/or FileExit
macros, (you will if you have previously configured FileAssist for
Word), a dialog box will be displayed asking to rename your old macros.
Press YES to install the new macros. Your old macros will be renamed
ndw3FileOpen, ndw3FileSave, ndw3FileSaveAs, and/or ndw3FileExit.

Note: The update will create a log file named PATCH.ERR in the NDW directory.
This file will show any errors during processing the NDW directory. It
is normal to have any of the lines below in this file:

Warning wpt0015: Old File does not exist

Warning wpt0015: Old File does not exist

Warning wpt0036: Old File not found. However, a file of the same name was
found. No update done since file contents do not match.

Warning wpt0036: Old File not found. However, a file of the same name was
found. No update done since file contents do not match.

The presence of those lines does NOT indicate an error but any other
files reported there might.

If you encounter any problems, contact our Technical Support department at
(503) 465-8420 Monday through Friday between the hours of 7 a.m. and 4 p.m.
PST. If you have a modem, you can also receive assistance on the Symantec BBS
at (503) 484-6669, on CompuServe by typing GO SYMUTIL, or on America Online
by using the keyword SYMANTEC.

Thank you for your continued use and support of Symantec products.
