UniQWK - .QWK Offline Reader
1992-1994 UniKEY Informtica Ltda.
All Rights Reserved
UniQWK is an off-line reader compatible with QWK message packets,
developed for Windows 3.1. With UniQWK, you can process messages
quickly, using the traditional facilities of DOS readers, as well as
the intrinsic advantages of Windows.
UniQWK Version 3.3 allows you to incorporate some of Windows
3.1's multimedia facilities into your messages. Using UniQWK, you can
send messages containing sounds that you have recorded or .WAV or .MID
This revolutionary novelty joins other important features, such
File Attachment for BBSs with Cam-Mail or Tomcat doors.
Automatically sending UU/XXencoded messages.
Decoding messages with XX/UUencoded files.
Spell check for English.
Decoding messages with XXCODED files.
Automatic message selection based on keywords.
Returning to package processing in case of involuntary
Automatic conversion of accented characters, letting you
correctly read messages in both CP860 and CP850. UniQWK also
supports CP473 (US default) or ANSI (Windows default). Code
page 850 was used to accent this text.
Messages with ANSI commands are supported without animation.
Incorporates internal ZIP/UNZIP. In this mode, UniQWK can be
run under WIN/OS2 without problems.
UniQWK also can be run under WINDOWS NT, our internal ZIP or
any other external compactor/extractor (PIF).
We would like to thank everyone who patiently tested and made
suggestions during development of this program. There are so many that
naming them here would undoubtedly result in our overlooking a few.

all of the above-mentioned files.
UniQWK is not freeware. You may test it for one month. If you
decide to continue using it after the evaluation period, you must
register your copy.
You can obtain a usage license for UniQWK by paying only US
$30.00 (thirty US. dollars), or the equivalent in Brazilian currency.
See details on SENDME.TXT file.
The shareware version is completely operational. The only
restrictions are that you only have two taglines advertising UniQWK
and an occasional screen reminding you to register your copy.
You only pay for the license once. Besides getting rid of our
registration reminder, you can then change taglines. Licensed users
will receive ALL future version at no additional charge, as well as
have technical support whenever needed.

Our best incentive for continuing to develop this program is your
registration. Knowing that people like and use a program is always
good, but it is even better if you receive some financial compensation
for your work. Regardless of being registered or not, all comments
and suggestions are welcomed.
Sellers and distributors of public domain software CANNOT CHARGE
for the use of UniQWK, though they may include UniQWK on a diskette or
any other media and, subsequently, charge a fee for the use or
distribution of the media used. Whoever buys that diskette should be
informed that the price is for the diskette and not for registering
BBS system operators (SYSOPS) may make UniQWK available for their
users as long as they meet the conditions described in the preceding
paragraph, or rather, the BBS may charge an access fee, but cannot
charge specifically for downloading UniQWK. SYSOPS making UniQWK
available for "free downloading" can receive a free registration.
Please contact us for further details.
HOW TO INSTALL:
As of version 3.0, we have included an auxiliary installation
program in the packet. Proceed as follows to install UniQWK using
Unpack the file in any directory, for example, C:\ZZ.
Enter Windows and run the program C:\ZZ\SETUP.EXE.
Follow the instructions on the screen.
NOTE: If you want to set only the dictionary, use option /D at
setup command line.
If you use an external unpacker, or you want to install the
program manually, proceed as follows:
Unpack the file in any directory, for example,
Copy MRPACK.PIR and MRUNPACK.PIF to your Windows
The first time you run UniQWK, it will make a working
directory under the directory in which you have placed
the program. Ex: C:\UNIQWK\UNIWRK. Leave this
directory empty; never use it for any reason. UniQWK
will delete its contents.
Using the Program Manager, install UniQWK in the group
of your choice.
You MUST complete the configuration menus before opening any .QWK
packet in order to:
Select default directories for uploads, downloads,
saving files and messages, etc.
Select reply options, such as editor, margins, "quote"
character, code page, etc.
Choose other assorted options.
If you use an external compressor (Zip, ARJ, etc.), take note of the
Using the PIF Editor, confirm that the .PIF files are
correct for your system;
Confirm that your compression/extraction programs are
Confirm that these programs can be accessed using your
current PATH. For more information about .PIFs, see
Copy MRPACK.PIF and MRUNPACK.PIF to your Windows
After installation, open any .QWK packet (or the example file)
using the File menu and test to see if any problems occur while
reading your packet.
Remember that UniQWK does not need the index files (.NDX). You
may therefore configure your BBS door to not send them, saving
We emphatically recommend that you use the internal ZIP/UNZIP.
UniQWK supports files packed with PKZIP version 2.0. There is,
therefore, no reason to use an external packer, since the ZIP format
is supported by virtually all BBSs.
Upgrading from Version 2.1 or 3.0
If upgrading from Version 2.0 or 3.0, you need only exchange the
old UNIQWK.EXE, UNIQWK.HLP and BCWTERM.FON files for the new ones.
Upgrading from Version 1.x or 2.0
In this case, we recommend reinstalling the program.
ATTENTION: If you are a registered user:
The registration codes were changed as of Version 3.0, and you
should receive your new code through the mail. If you do not, please
contact us. Your registration is still in effect.
