Config/Autoexec Manager v2.61 Preface




P R E F A C E


CAM v2.61 was created to extend the function of CAM v1.2. This
release has a number of enhancements including command line
selection and reboot, delay execution timer, allows you to
specify CAM v2.61 in your PATH statement, and overall redesigned
screen layout to provide better functionality. CAM v2.61 manages
up to 20 different AUTOEXEC.BAT and CONFIG.SYS file combinations.
If you have a need for more than 20 configurations or have a need
to organize your configurations into categories, then CAMPRO will
allow you to do so. CAMPRO contains the before mentioned enhance-
ments, but it will organize your configurations into categories.
CAMPRO will allow you to create up to 20 different categories
containing 20 different AUTOEXEC.BAT and CONFIG.SYS file combinations
in each category.

Since the initial release of Config/Autoexec Manager, user response
has been great!! We appreciate your interests and concerns of the
program. This release to circumvent any problems or errors which
have occurred in Config/Autoexec Manager v2.0. See the HISTORY.DOC
text file included with this release for enhancement details.
Through user support, the Config/Autoexec Manager series is fast
becoming the standard in configuration management. We do care about
our users and hope to bring only the best effort to them.
Thank you for supporting the Shareware concept!!

Thanks to Magic City USA bulletin board service for establishing
a CAM & CAMPRO conference available to all users who have a
question or comment about Config/Autoexec Manager. All current
and new releases are available online. See Appendix C for
technical and product support information and phone numbers.

Last but not least, a special thanks goes to Ed Rauch for his
assistance and support on this project. His expertise and
experience is appreciated. Thanks, Ed!!

About this manual: As the name implies, this is a user's manual
describing the operation of CAM v2.61. It is not intended as a

Config/Autoexec Manager v2.61 Introduction


I N T R O D U C T I O N

WHY YOU NEED CONFIG/AUTOEXEC MANAGER

If you have purchased a program that requires its own system
configuration such as Microsoft Windows, Desqview, or a similar
program, you have a need for Config/Autoexec Manager. Config/
Autoexec Manager has been developed for users who have a need for
more than one configuration consisting of an AUTOEXEC.BAT and
CONFIG.SYS file. These configurations are needed to be quickly
selected and placed in the root directory of your computer system
to be executed upon a reboot of your system. Config/Autoexec
Manager will allow you to create and keep track of these config-
urations more effectively than any comparable program to date.
CAM contains the essential functions needed to maintain your
configurations effectively and simply. CAM IS the standard in
multiple configuration management.

Since its initial development, CAM has expanded its functionality.
This expansion is due to the acknowledgement of two types of users,
the general user and the power user. The general user needs only a
few basic configurations. Hence, CAM will allow the user to create
and manage up to 20 different configurations. However, the power
user has a greater need for more than a few configurations. CAMPRO
will allow the user to create 20 different categories with 20
configurations in each category, i.e., a total of 400 configurations.
The point is, what ever your needs are in configuration management,
there is a version of Config/Autoexec Manager for you, either CAM or
CAMPRO. You decide which one is for you.


HARDWARE REQUIREMENTS

Config/Autoexec Manager v2.61 requires a minimum of 512K of
available RAM (Random Access Memory) to execute properly depending on
the size of your editor used in conjunction with CAM. That is,
512K in addition to the operating system and any memory resident
programs as SideKick, SuperKey, etc.. If you are operating with less
than 512k total RAM, CAM v2.61 might not be able to load your editor.
Also, depending upon the size of your editor, CAM may or may not be
able to load it in memory blocks under 510k running under an operating
environment such as Desqview. It runs under MS/PC-DOS on the IBM PC, XT,
AT, and PS/2 Models, or any close compatible and may be used with color,
composite, or monochrome displays under DOS v2.61 and above, up to and
including DOS v5.00.

Because CAM v2.61 may have a relatively large number of files open at
once, you must assure that the FILES parameter in your CONFIG.SYS file
is large enough to accommodate them. We suggest using FILES=30 (or
larger). Your DOS manual can give you more information on the
CONFIG.SYS file.

Even though CAM v2.61 has the ability to use the A:\ drive for your Boot
Drive, it is not recommended that you do so. CAM v2.61 can be used most
effectively from your hard disk or large storage medium designated as
Boot Drive C:\.

Config/Autoexec Manager v2.61 Installation


I N S T A L L A T I O N

USING THE INSTALLATION PROGRAM

You begin the Installation Procedure by either inserting the CAM disk
into Drive A and typing INSTALL at the DOS prompt after closing the
drive latch, or unzipping the CAM25.ZIP file into its own subdirectory
and typing INSTALL at the DOS prompt.


Example: A> INSTALL

The Installation Menu will appear on the screen and you will be able to
re-define or use the default Drive and Directory. After editing if
necessary, press the Enter or Return key and the Installation Program
will begin to create CAM's directories and relocate the appropriate
files on the destination drive.

If the destination directory you have selected contains a prior version
of CAM, then the Select Prior Version window will appear and you will
be able to select which version you have already installed on your
system. Once the Installation program which version type you have,
it will upgrade your configurations and CAM Setup file to the newer
2.61 version. When this is completed, you DO NOT have to run the
Upgrade program enclosed with this version.

If your destination directory does not contain a prior version or you
do not wish to install the newer 2.61 version in an existing prior
version directory, the Installation program will install CAM 2.61
into that directory you have selected. If you have a prior version
on your system, then after installation you can use the Upgrade program
to convert the CAM Setup file and configurations to the newer 2.61
version.

After the Installation Program has finished, you will be placed in the
CAM directory on the destination drive. On the screen at the top left
corner, you should see instructions to proceed to the next step.
Otherwise, type CAM at the DOS prompt to configure the program to your
desired needs.



INITIAL CAM EXECUTION

If you have not upgrade to version 2.61 from a prior version upon
installation, then upon initial execution of CAM you will be prompted
for necessary changes in the CAM Setup.

First, you will be prompted to confirm or change your boot drive.
A small window will appear on your screen asking you to confirm
the desired boot drive. Once the boot drive has been defined, CAM
will search the root directory on the boot drive for the AUTOEXEC.BAT
and CONFIG.SYS files. If these files are not found, then CAM will
prompt you as to the location of these files. The drive where these
files are located is assumed to be the boot drive. When these files
are located, they are then copied to the CAM directory and stored as
the first initial configuration named 'STANDARD CONFIGURATION' and
given the filename of 'DEFAULT'. The filename can be changed to
your discretion. After this has been completed, you will be able to
make any necessary changes in the CAM Setup.

Copyright (c)1990,1992 - Miller Programming & Consulting Page 3


Config/Autoexec Manager v2.61 Installation

Second, another window will appear on your screen. The contents of
this window is the CAM Setup screen. Here you will find the boot
drive, default CAM directory, editor path & name, warm/cold boot
options, make root configuration read-only option, and disk cache
options. You can change any or all of these options as to your
system setup. A highlighted bar is at the first option and can be
moved to other options by using the up and down arrow keys or the
enter or return key. When you are at the last option and press the
enter or return key, if any options have been changed, you will then
be prompted to save these options to disk. If the editor name you
have defined cannot be found in the path you have designated, then
CAM will prompt you to change the editor path & name to a valid path
and name. Otherwise, the options and their settings listed will be
saved to disk in the CAM.CFG file.

After the CAM Setup has been saved, the initial installation and
setup is completed and CAM will be executed normally. You will be
placed in the CAM Configuration Selection screen.

At the Configuration Selection Screen, you will find at the top of
the screen the Active and Copied configurations. The Active
configuration is the configuration that is in memory. This will
not change unless another configuration is selected and the computer
is rebooted. The Copied configuration is the latest configuration
that has been placed in the root directory by CAM. This will be
changed when an alternate configuration is selected and copied to the
root directory. The window in the center of the screen, the
Configuration Selection window, contains the available configurations
to the left of the window and the functions of the highlighted
configurations to the right of the window. The highlighted bar can
be moved to alternate configurations if more than one of the
descriptions appear on the screen by pressing the up and down arrow
keys. The F1, F2, F3, Alt-A, and Alt-C key functions act directly
on the configuration under the highlighted bar.

You also can include the CAM directory in your PATH statement. This
will allow you to begin CAM from anywhere on your drive. See your
DOS manual for more information concerning your PATH statement.


USING THE UPGRADE PROGRAM

If you install CAM into its own directory and have a prior version
of CAM also installed on your hard drive, you can use the the
Upgrade Program after you have installed CAM v2.61 and executed
CAM for the first time having the 'Standard Configuration' already
installed as your first configuration.

To execute the UPGRADE.EXE program, type UPGRADE at the DOS prompt
and press the Enter or Return key. The upgrade program will prompt
you for the prior version directory. After you have given the
correct directory for your prior version, then the upgrade program
will ask if you would like to update your CAM Setup file.

After you have updated the the CAM Setup file, if so desired, then
the upgrade program will convert your old configurations from your
prior version and install them into the new CAM v2.61 directory and
update the configuration listing. The upgrade utility will convert
up to 20 configurations, if available. Empty configuration records
will be used.

F1 - ADD A CONFIGURATION - If you would like to add a new configuration
to the listing, press the F1 key at the Configuration Selection Menu.
The Add A Configuration window will be opened and you will be able to
enter the new description and change the file name, if desired. If you
wish to abort this function, press the Escape key. When a new
configuration is added to the listing, then it will create a DOS
AUTOEXEC.BAT and CONFIG.SYS for that configuration. Their contents
will consist of a single REM statement at the beginning of each file
containing the configuration description, AUTOEXEC.BAT or CONFIG.SYS
file indication, and contents of the root DOS AUTOEXEC.BAT and
CONFIG.SYS contents. When you press the Enter or Return key for the
third time, you will be prompted to save the changed description or
filename.

NOTE: The filename for a configuration is eight (8) characters long and
is the eight letter filename for the DOS file, i.e. if the filename is
'CONFIG1', the DOS file 'CONFIG1.Axx' will be the AUTOEXEC.BAT file
and the DOS file 'CONFIG1.Cxx' will be the CONFIG.SYS file,
respectively for each configuration in that directory, whereby 'xx'
represents the sequential record number associated with the
configuration description.


F2 - RENAME HIGHLIGHTED CONFIGURATION - If you desire to edit an existing
configuration from the listing, move the scroll bar to the desired
configuration description and press the F2 key. This will open the
Rename Configuration window. Here you can edit the selected

F8 - COPY FILES TO ROOT DIRECTORY - To execute this function, move the
scroll bar to the desired configuration and press the F8 key. This
function will first check the current active configuration to its
respective files in the root directory. If they are different, a
warning window will be opened, otherwise, the selected configuration
files will be copied to the root and be made the current configuration
ready for reboot. If the root directory files are different from the
currently active configuration, a warning window will pop up onto the
screen giving you four (4) options to choose from. The first option,
1) will copy the currently active files back to the root directory
overwriting the root directory files, 2) will copy the root directory
files back to the currently active configuration files overwriting
them, 3) add configuration to the configuration list, or 4) continue
with Copying Files routine.

NOTE: This function will only copy the selected configuration files to
the root directory. They will not be loaded into memory until the
computer is rebooted. THIS FUNCTION ONLY COPIES THE SELECTED
CONFIGURATION FILES TO THE ROOT DIRECTORY.

F9 - REBOOT COMPUTER - When you press the F9 key, the computer will
automatically reboot with the desired option, Warm or Cold Boot,
defined in the CHANGE CAM SETUP window. The computer will boot up
without changing the current AUTOEXEC.BAT and CONFIG.SYS. It just
simply reboots the computer.

F10 - EXIT TO DOS - When you press the F10 key, CAM will compare the
existing AUTOEXEC.BAT and CONFIG.SYS in the root directory to the
current AUTOEXEC.BAT and CONFIG.SYS designated by CAM to be in the
root directory. If these files are different, you will be prompted by
a Warning window popping onto the screen. At this time, you have the
options of 1) Copy the current CAM AUTOEXEC.BAT and CONFIG.SYS files to
the root directory, 2) Copy the root directory AUTOEXEC.BAT and
CONFIG.SYS files to the current CAM AUTOEXEC.BAT and CONFIG.SYS
making them the current files, 3) Adding the root directory
AUTOEXEC.BAT and CONFIG.SYS to the configuration listing, or 4)

AUTOEXEC.BAT for the selected configuration description by calling the
editor of your choice. Your editor of choice is defined in the Editor
Path & Name variable at the Change CAM Settings Menu. By pressing the
ALT-A key combination, your editor of choice will be loaded into memory.
If there is a problem calling the editor of choice, CAM will recover
through its error recovery system by letting you know with an error
number of why it cannot load your editor into memory. Otherwise, after
you have edited the AUTOEXEC.BAT, CAM will be loaded back into memory
and store the file time, date, and size in its records. After returning
from your editor, you will be returned back to the Configuration
Selection Menu.


ALT-C - EDIT CONFIG.SYS - This function will allow you to edit the
CONFIG.SYS for the selected configuration description by calling the
editor of your choice. Your editor of choice is defined in the Editor
Path & Name variable at the Change CAM Settings Menu. By pressing the
ALT-C key combination, your editor of choice will be loaded into memory.
After you have edited the CONFIG.SYS, CAM will be loaded back into
memory and you will be brought back to the Configuration Selection Menu.


ENTER - COPY HIGHLIGHTED CONFIGURATION AND REBOOT - This function will
allow you to copy the highlighted configuration selection to the root
directory and reboot the computer automatically. If an error occurs
in either the AUTOEXEC.BAT and/or CONFIG.SYS file, CAM will display
a warning window with (4) four options to correct the problem.

This option is designed to make the configuration management easily
accessible from the DOS prompt, instead of having to go into the CAM
program all of the time. The following descriptions will give you more
of an insight to the command line functions.


'/' OPTION - This option will allow you to copy and reboot
the computer by using the selected . The is the
eight letter filename of the DOS AUTOEXEC.BAT and CONFIG.SYS files.
The example DOS command line is as follows:

Example: C> CAM /CONFIG1

Whereby, CAM - call CAM program, '/' this character must appear
to indicate the first token of the command line, CONFIG1 is the
configuration filename of the selected configuration to copy to the
root directory and reboot the computer.

NOTE: The '/' or backslash character must appear at the beginning of
the filename. If the configuration filename does not match one the
selected configuration files, then CAM will notify you of the error
by giving you an 'INVALID PARAMETER' error and will not execute
the desired selection by returning you to the DOS prompt. If the
currently active AUTOEXEC.BAT and/or CONFIG.SYS files do not match the
root directory files, then CAM will notify you of the problem and will
not copy the selected files to the root directory and reboot the
computer. Instead, CAM will prompt you to go directly into CAM and
correct the problem.


'-T' OPTION - This command line option is designed to delay
the start up of CAM for a specified number of seconds, where
is defined from 1 to 99. If are not specified, that is,
CAM -T, is specified at the command line, then CAM will default to 15
seconds. During this delay phase, you have the option to Abort by
pressing the Space Bar key or loading CAM by pressing the ENTER key. If
no key is pressed, the countdown will continue until the time has expired
and then CAM will abort.

STACKER

If you have Stacker installed on your hard drive and desire to use
CAM in conjunction with Stacker, then you can configuration CAM in
two ways.

1) Using the Stacker Drive as Your Boot Drive
If your Stacker drive is your boot drive and is not designated
as Drive C, then you must specify the Stacker drive letter as
the boot drive in CAM Setup. Otherwise, if your Stacker drive
is Drive C, then make sure that the CAM Boot Drive is named
C:\.

2) Using the Stacker Drive Other Than Drive C
If your Stacker drive is not your boot drive and your boot
drive is Drive C, then make sure that the CAM Boot Drive is
set to C:\ in CAM Setup.

Stacker will prompt you to update the AUTOEXEC.BAT and CONFIG.SYS files
upon reboot of your computer, you must update the files keeping in mind
which drive is your primary boot drive. Therefore, your configurations
are copied to two separate drives, once by CAM and the other by Stacker.
Stacker drive switching utility will take care of the rest.


DESQVIEW

If you are using Desqview and wish to use CAM in conjunction with
Desqview, then you must determine the minimal memory usage of CAM.
Use the Desqview utility programs to determine the minimal memory
usage by CAM. Make sure that you execute the editor while
performing these functions to make sure that the correct memory
size will be given. See the Desqview manual for details on
running these utility programs and their specific functions.
The author has determined that the minimal memory usage is 512K.
Your determination may be more or less specific to your particular
computer and its characteristics. If in doubt, set the minimal
memory usage to 512K. CAM can be swapped to disk if needed.
See the Desqview manual for complete details of adding programs
to the Desqview environment.

SHAREWARE INFORMATION


WHAT IS SHAREWARE?
Shareware is copyrighted software that is distributed at minimal cost.
Because you can "try before you buy," its easy to find programs to fit
your needs. Shareware authors release programs with an element of
trust, expecting payment if a program is used regularly. You save when
you buy shareware, since expensive marketing costs are eliminated.

Shareware is not a kind of software, but rather an alternative form of
software marketing which is both revolutionary and exciting. The
shareware method of software marketing allows you to receive the latest
top quality software from an authorized disk vendor for a very small
fee or direct from the author. They contain fully functioning programs
and instructions or manuals that you can easily read on-screen or print
out.

Shareware is the future of software marketing. As the public becomes
more aware of the shareware concept, it will be the only way people
wish to buy software. Wouldn't you rather try out a program before
investing in it? Marketing products via shareware also stimulates
better quality, after all, only very good shareware products will be
supported through registrations, since no one would register a poor
quality program. Shareware authors are also generally more receptive
to user's comments and suggestions because a shareware author is user-
supported through direct registrations.

Thank you for taking the time to learn more about shareware.
