OVERVIEW

PopIT! turns almost any program into a memory resident pop-up
utility. Simply press PopIT!'s hot-key (the default is CTRL-
F1), and you can execute any of the programs defined to Pop-
It's menu, or execute any DOS command-line.

PopIT! was designed primarily with network administrators in
mind, although network power-users will also undoubtedly enjoy
the convenience of PopIT! Network administrators can use
PopIT! to jump into NetWare utilities like RCONSOLE, SYSCON,
FCONSOLE and others, without exiting their application.

This .ZIP file includes a 30-day trial version of PopIT!, allowing
you to try PopIT! for 30 days of actual use before deciding
whether or not to purchase it.



INSTALLING POPIT!


COPY POPIT! TO YOUR SERVER

Copy PopIT!'s program files into SYS:PUBLIC or other
appropriate directory on your file server. The following
files are required:

PINSTALL.EXE
POPIT30.COM
POPIT30.OVR
VIDEO.OVR
PCONFIG.EXE
POPIT.DAT

Note: If you are running other Infinite Technologies'
utilities, they share a common VIDEO.OVR file. Use the
VIDEO.OVR with the most recent date stamp.


RUN PINSTALL TO INITIALIZE POPIT!

Run PINSTALL.EXE to initialize the PopIT! 30 day trial period.


RUN PCONFIG TO CUSTOMIZE POPIT!

PopIT! functions as a rudimentary menuing application. In
order to define the items that will be made available on Pop-
It's pop-up menu, you must execute the PCONFIG utility. Type
PCONFIG to create/edit the default menu profile, POPIT.DAT, or
type PCONFIG MENUFILE, where MENUFILE is the name of the menu
profile that you are creating.

Within PCONFIG, press to define additional
applications. The following fields are available for each
application:

Description (Required) - This is the descriptive name for
the application that will appear on PopIT!'s menus.

Executable File Information:

Drive (Optional if program is in path) - The drive
letter on which the program file is located.

Directory (Optional if program is in path) - The
directory on the specified drive where the program file
is located.

File Name (Required) - The file name of the executable
program file (or batch file). Include the .EXE, .COM,
or .BAT extension as appropriate.

Parameters (Optional) - This defines any command line
parameters to be passed to the program. To prompt for
a command-line parameter, place a ? in the first field,
followed immediately by an optional text prompt to be
presented to the user when this application is
selected.

Working Drive or Directory (OPTIONAL) - These fields
specify an optional work directory to change to when the
application is executed. This is optional.


LOAD POPIT!

To load PopIT!, simply type POPIT30.

Optional command-line parameters include:

/P=MENUFILE where MENUFILE is the PopIT! menu profile file
to use instead of POPIT.DAT.

/M=??? where ??? is the number of KB of swap area PopIT!
should use. PopIT! defaults to 384KB.

/NE tells PopIT! not to use Expanded memory for swapping.

/NX tells PopIT! not to use Extended memory for swapping.

/NU tells PopIT! not to use 386-to-the-MAX or QEMM upper
memory blocks to reduce conventional memory overhead.

/D tells PopIT! not to use Expanded or Extended memory for
swapping, and to swap to disk. (PopIT! will swap to disk
by default if insufficient expanded or extended memory is
available.) Note: PopIT! creates a swap file in C:\ or
the directory specified via the DOS TMP environmental
variable. PopIT! is NetWare aware, so multiple
workstations can safely use the same TMP directory.
/U unloads or de-installs PopIT!.

You can also change PopIT!'s default hot-key of CTRL-F1 via
the command line with the following command line parameters:

@ Tells PopIT! to use instead of in the hot-
key.

A-Z Any alphabetic character from A to Z can be specified
to work in conjunction with or in the hot-
key.

Fxx Any function key (F1-F12) can be specified to work in
conjunction with or in the hot-key.

Examples:

POPIT30 alone defaults to the - hot-key, or if Pop-
It has already been loaded, the hot-key is not changed.

POPIT30 X tells PopIT! to use - as its hot-key.

POPIT30 @Z tells PopIT! to use - as its hot-key.

POPIT30 F12 tells PopIT! to use - as its hot-key.

POPIT30 @F5 tells PopIT! to use - as its hot-key.



POPPING UP POPIT!

Press the PopIT! hot-key defined when loading PopIT!, and the
PopIT! menu will be displayed.

Select an application by moving the highlight-bar, or by
typing in the first one or more letters of the application
name. Then press to execute the application.

In addition to any defined applications, you can also press F2
to access a DOS Command Window, where you can enter any DOS
command.
