Microsoft Win32s version 1.25A is the latest version of the software
that allows you to run Win32-based applications on Windows(TM)
or Windows for Workgroups versions 3.1 and later.

The "Microsoft Win32s Upgrade" Application Note disk contains the file
W32S125.EXE; the file LICENSE.TXT, which has legal information
regarding redistribution of Win32s files [please consult the Win32s
"Programmer's Reference," which is part of the Microsoft Win32
Software Development Kit (SDK), for further information]; and a
README.TXT file, which is the text of this Application Note.

The "Microsoft Win32s Upgrade" does not include OLE support. For OLE
support for Win32-based applications under Win32s, you need the Microsoft
Win32(R) SDK.

The Win32s upgrade is intended as an end-user upgrade and is not
intended for further redistribution.

The following are instructions for installing Win32s.

Decompressing the Setup Program Files

The Win32s files are provided in a compressed state in the W32S125.EXE
file. This executable file decompresses the setup files for Win32s:

1. Create a directory on your hard drive for the decompressed files.
For example, you could create the directory "INSTALL" by entering
the following at the command prompt:

mkdir install

2. Copy W32S125.EXE to the new INSTALL directory, change directories to
the INSTALL directory, and type the following at the command prompt:


This decompresses the Win32s files into an installation layout (setup
program) in the INSTALL directory.

Installing Win32s on Your System

1. To install Win32s, run Windows and start the File Manager.

2. Open the INSTALL directory (the directory created in step 1 of the
setup instructions above).

3. Double-click SETUP.EXE. The setup program installs Win32s and
reboots the system to update system files.

Win32s is now installed or upgraded on your system, and any
obsolete Win32s files have been removed.

4. Delete the INSTALL directory and its contents.

- After calling CreateFile() on a write-protected floppy GetLastError()
returns 2, instead of 19, as it should.

- VirtualProtect() with anything other than PAGE_NOACCESS, PAGE_READ, OR
PAGE_READWRITE yields unpredictable page protections.

MEASUREITEMSTRUCT incorrectly sign-extend fields.

- GetWindowTextLength() & GetWindowText() incorrectly sign-extend the
return value.

FIX: Win32s 1.25a Fix List [win32sdk]
ID: Q130139 CREATED: 11-MAY-1995 MODIFIED: 11-MAY-1995
PUBLIC | kbprg kbfixlist kbbuglist

The information in this article applies to:

- Microsoft Win32s, version 1.25a

The following is a list of the known bugs in Win32s version 1.2 that
were fixed in Win32s version 1.25.

- GlobalAlloc(GMEM_FIXED) from 32-bit .EXE locks memory pages. It is
more efficient to use GlobalAlloc(GMEM_MOVEABLE) and call GlobalFix()
if necessary.

- WINMM16.DLL has no version information.

- CreateFileMapping() with SEC_NOCOMMIT returns ERROR_INVALID_PARAMETER.

- PolyPolygon() does not close the polygons.

- OpenFile() only searches the current directory when only a filename is
given, not the application directory, the system directory, the windows
directory, or the directories listed on the path.

- GetFileInformationByHandle() doesn't return the correct file attribute.

- GlobalUnlock() sets an error of ERROR_INVALID_PARAMETER.

- lstrcmp()/lstrcmpi() do not use the collate table correctly.

- FreeLibrary() in DLL_PROCESS_DETACH crashes the system.

- FindResource(), LoadResource(), GetProcAddress(), GetModuleFileName(),
EnumResourceNames(), and other APIs, fail with a NULL hInstance.

- sndPlaySound() with SND_ASYNC | SND_MEMORY may cause a crash or may work

- Thread Local Storage (TLS) data is not initialized to 0 in TlsAlloc().

- The pointer received in the lParam of WM_INITDIALOG in the common dialog
hook function becomes invalid in the following messages if the pointer
is "remembered" in a static variable.

- Stubbed API GetFileAttributesW() does not return -1 on error.

- Code page CP_MACCP not supported.

- Invalid LCIDs are not recognized.

- CreateFile() fails to open an existing file in share mode.

- GetLocaleInfo() for locale returns system defaults from WIN.INI.\* #595

- GetVolumeInformation() fails with ERROR_INVALID_NAME for volumes
without a label.

- VirtualProtect() may miss the last page in an address range.

- GetLocaleInfo() returns incorrect information for most non-US locales.

- ANSI/OEM conversions always use code page 437.

- GetProcAddress() for printer driver APIs is case sensitive.

- The LanMan APIs are unsupported, but they return 0, which indicates
that the API was successful. They should return NERR_InvalidAPI (2142).

- CreateFileW() returns 0 instead of -1 (HFILE_ERROR).

- lstrcpyn() copies n bytes from source to destination, then appends a
NULL terminator, instead of copying n-1 bytes and appending the NULL

- GetDriveType() doesn't report detecting a CD-ROM or a RAM DISK.

- CRTDLL calls TlsFree() upon each process detach, not just the last.

- If a DllEntryPoint calls FreeLibrary() when using universal thunks,
the system can crash.

- Not all 32-bit DLLs have correct version numbers.

- GetCurrentDirectory() returns the wrong directory after calling
GetOpenFileName(). The workaround is to call SetCurrentDirectory(".")
right after returning from the call to GetOpenFileName().

- RegEnumValue() and other Registry functions return ERROR_SUCCESS even
though they are not implemented. Win32s implements only the registry
functions supported by Windows.

- AreFileApisANSI()/SetFileApisToANSI()/SetFileApisToOEM() are not
exported. AreFileApisANSI() should always return TRUE, SetFileApiToOEM()
should always fail, and SetFileApiToANSI() should always succeed.

- SetLocaleInfoW()/SetLocateInfoA() are not implemented.

- GetScrollPos() sets the last error if the scroll position is 0.

- SetScrollPos() sets the last error if the last scroll position is 0.

- LoadString() leaks memory if the string is a null string.

- GetFileVersionInfoSize() fails if the resource section is small and
close to the end of the file.

- MoveFile() doesn't call SetLastError() on failure or sets a different
error than on Windows NT.

- SetCurrentDirectory() does not work on a CD-ROM drive.

- GetFileVersionInfoSize() fails if the 2nd parameter is NULL.

- WSOCK32.DLL is missing exported stubs for unimplemented APIs.

- Win32s fails to load 64x64 monochrome (black and white) icons.

- CreateFile() fails when called with a filename with an international

- GetCurrentDirectory() returns an OEM string.

- PrintDlg() causes GP fault if hDevMode!=NULL and another printer is
selected that uses a larger DevMode buffer.

- Unicode resources are not properly converted to 8 bit characters.

- CreateDC() returns an incorrect DEVMODE. This can cause a variety of
symptoms, like the inability to do a Landscape Print Preview from an
MFC application or the displayed paper width and height not changing,
even when you change the paper size.

- OpenFile() fails on filenames with OEM characters in the name.

- GetDriveType() fails on a Stacker 3.1 drive.

- SetCurrentDirectory() fails on Novell client machines.

- GetProp() returns 0 in the second instance of an app in certain cases.

- fopen(fn, "w") fails on second call.

- TLS indices allocated by a module are released when that module is freed.

- CreateWindow() handles STARTUPINFO incorrectly if the application starts

- CreateFile() creates files with incorrect attributes.

- Resource sections are now read/write to emulate the behavior of Windows
NT and Windows 95.

- Removed the 128K stack limitation.

- CompareStringW() sometimes uses incorrect locale, primarily Swedish and
other Scandinavian locales.

- Added dummy _iob to CRTDLL for applications that reference standard
