CEO Lite, version 1.0/L
(c)Copyright 1993 Sloop Software

Sloop Software is pleased to announce the release of the Windows 3.1
shareware replacement shell, CEO Lite. CEO Lite is a replacement for
MS Windows 3.1 Program Manager. It offers all the major features of
Program Manager plus a host of new features. If you're looking for
an easy to use replacement with all the features Program Manager
should have had, give CEO Lite a try.

CEO Lite is a subset of the retail version of our program, CEO:Desktop
Manager. See the file orderfrm.txt to order either program. CEO Lite
is available for $35 and CEO:Desktop Manager is available for $50.
CEO:Desktop Manager includes several new features not found in CEO Lite
and provides a printed manual. For more info on CEO:Desktop Manager
see the catalog.txt file or the end of this file.

Installation (perform to install new versions, also):

To install CEO follow the steps below.

1. Insert the CEO disk 1 into the appropriate drive. Or, copy all files
into a temporary directory.

2. From Program Manager or File Manager select the Run command and type
in a:install.exe. If using the b drive, substitute a: with b:. Or,
from the temporary directory, execute install.exe.

3. Follow the install program's directions for installing the software.

Should this process fail for any reason, follow the instructions for the
manual install process in the trouble.txt file.

If you are currently using the programs Sloop Manager or Folders, you
will be given the opportunity to import them into CEO.


Uninstalling CEO:

An uninstall program is provided with CEO to remove it completely from
your system. To uninstall CEO run the program unstall.exe. It will
remove all CEO files from your system and undo the changes made to the
WIN.INI file.

Should something go wrong during the install process and you are no longer
able to run Windows, follow the procedure below.

1. Using a text editor (such as DOS 5+ edit), open the file system.ini
found in your Windows directory.
2. Find the line which reads 'shell=ceo.exe'. Edit the line to read
'shell=progman.exe'. Save and exit the editor.

You should now be able to start Windows with Program Manager as the shell.


CEO Lite's major features include:

*Create subfolders (subgroups) within folders, allowing you to create
a tree structure of folders and subfolders.

*Password protection provided for individual folders or can be used
to lock people out of Windows completely.

*History menu which tracks the last twelve applications launched
from any folder. This allows you to quickly re-launch an
application you wish to use again after closing it.

*Add items to folders by dragging files from the File Manager.
Launch programs by dropping data files on program icons where
the icons may either be icons in a folder or icons on the desktop.
Print files by dropping them on Print Manager.

*Multi-select capability provided when adding or deleting items.
Add multiple items at once or delete multiple items using two
different delete capabilities.

*Launch multiple applications with a single action. All items in
a folder may be launched at once or only selected items may be
launched by just hitting the enter key.

*Includes run command with browse button. The last twelve
commands entered are stored with no duplications for easy access.

*Customizable popup run menu provided for quick access to
programs accessible from any folder or from the desktop. Easy to
use menu editor included for building and maintaining run menu.
Menu items may be set to run minimized or maximized. Also,
hotkeys may be assigned to menu items.

*Assign hotkeys to items for quick launching. In addition,
programs can be set to automatically inquire for a data file upon
execution.

*Includes associate command similar to File Manager's, but CEO's
allows multiple programs to be assigned to a single extension.
Executing a folder item with multiple programs assigned to it will
cause a listbox to appear from which the desired program to be run
may be selected.

*The install program included automatically builds folders from
your Program Manager groups and places them in CEO making
for quick and easy setup.

UPDATES TO PROGRAM
************************************************************************

Setting a subfolder icon using the item icon command will now cause the
icon chosen to appear not only in the folder but also on the desktop when
the subfolder is opened and minimized. Note you should only set a subfolder
icon when the subfolder is closed.

The 'Folder -' which precedes the name of every folder may now be
eliminated. Add a line to the [Defaults] section of the ceo.ini file
which reads: Folder-=0

Any folder may now be specified as the startup folder upon Windows startup.
Use the following command line when starting Windows:
>win *s[]
Replace with the name of the folder to be used as the
startup folder. For example; >win *s[Debug Startup]
