INSTALLATION AND CONFIGURATION **ARCHIVER for Windows
==================================================================


==> IMPORTANT
-------------
Important points throughout the documentation are highlighted by
this "==>" symbol. If you decide to give this document only a
quick read through, please be sure you read the highlighted
portions! They contain information that is important for proper
program operation.


Installation (Quick Start)
--------------------------
If you decide to use ARCHIVER for Windows before completely
reading this documentation, here is what you will need to do to
to get it running.

==> PLEASE NOTE: In addition to the ARCHIVER for Windows program
files, you will also need the following programs in order to
use ALL of ARCHIVER for Window's features: PKZIP.EXE,
PKUNZIP.EXE, ZIP2EXE.EXE, ARC-E.COM, LHA.EXE, SCAN.EXE and
VIRx.EXE. ARCHIVER will function with only PKZIP and
PKUNZIP, or LHA, but some features will not be available.
See Appendix A for information on where to obtain these
programs.

1) Create a sub-directory where you want to keep the ARCHIVER
program files. Copy the self extracting archive to the new
ARCHIVER directory. Next, change to the ARCHIVER directory
using the DOS "CD" command. Now execute the self-extracting
archive by typing in the file name. This will create the
program and documentation files. Now, if you wish to keep the
support program files in the ARCHIVER directory, copy them in.

2) When installed, check to see that the following files are present:

INSTALL.DOC Installation Documentation File
INSTALL.BAT Installation Batch file.
REVIEW.EXE Miller-Ware Documentation File Viewer.
ARCHINST.EXE Self-Extracting LHA file that includes:
ARCHIVER.EXE The MAIN Windows Executable Program.
VBRUN100.DLL The Data Link Library for ARCHIVER.
ARCHIVER.DOC This Documentation File.
CATALOG.DOC An Introductory Information File.
3) Add the directory into which you have installed ARCHIVER for
Windows to the path statement in your autoexec.bat file.

4) Install ARCHIVER for Windows as a Program Item on one of
your Windows menus.

5) Select Archiver for Windows from the Windows menu. ARCHIVER
will say it is not properly configured. Select the CONFIGURE
control button fron the main screen and enter the locations
of the files to be used. That is it - you should be ready to
use ARCHIVER for Windows.


Page 2
INSTALLATION AND CONFIGURATION **ARCHIVER for Windows
==================================================================

Configuration
-------------
Select ARCHIVER for Windows from the windows menu. When the
program is activated the first time, a message will be displayed
stating ARCHIVER for Windows does not appear to be set-up
correctly. This is normal and is the result of ARCHIVER not being
able to locate the configuration file "CONFIG.DAT". When you get
to the main control screen, select the CONFIGURE button on the
bottom. The window that appears contains the locations where
ARCHIVER will be able to locate the necessary files. The default
setting is the directory where ARCHIVER is located. If you choose
to locate the files elsewhere, edit the drive and path information
shown. Be sure to include the filename as in the example shown:

Example of location for PKZIP:

==> d:\windows\archiver\files\pkzip.exe


If you do not have one of the files requested, leave the default
setting. ARCHIVER re-verifies the location is valid at start up.
If you encounter a problem running a procedure and receive an
error message saying ARCHIVER is unable to locate a required file,
check your configuration. Also, re-verify your configuration if
you change the location of any of the required files.

When you have completed the configuration be sure to click the
SAVE Button to save your configuration to disk. That's all there
is to it! ARCHIVER for Windows is configured and ready to run.

GENERAL INFORMATION **ARCHIVER for Windows
==================================================================

What is File Compression?
-------------------------
The term "compression" means to reduce in size. Computer file
compression refers to reducing files in size so they take up less
storage space on disk. The compressed files are then stored in a
special file called an archive file or compressed file. Some
times the owners and/or users of compression packages call these
files by the type of compression used, ie. ZIP file, LHA file etc.

Compressed files have three distinct benefits:

1) They use less disk space than normal files.

2) Many individual files can be compressed into a single
file. This makes file group identification, copying, and
transporting faster and easier.

3) Compressed files travel faster via modem which reduces
telecommunication transmission and reception times.
Most BBS' (Bulletin Board Services) use a compressed file
format. This means all files uploaded and downloaded
must be compressed. Many have a standard compression
method requirement (ie., all files must be in the ZIP)
format.

You might think this is great and wonderful, which it is, but
with these benefits came some drawbacks:

1) The syntax is downright hostile. Every compression author
must stay up nights dreaming about how cryptic the syntax
can be. Compression programs have UNIX like syntax and
combinations. This makes remembering that mess, a real
problem for us mortals.

2) "The nice thing about standards is there are so many
to choose from." Although ZIP is by far the leading
format for BBS formats, LHA is gaining support. And don't
forget about ZOO and ARC. We not only must remember the
syntax for one compression method, now they want us to
remember the syntax for many methods.


Page 5
GENERAL INFORMATION **ARCHIVER for Windows
==================================================================

Compression Method Matrix
-------------------------

The following matrix shows the procedures supported by each
compression method. Many of the limitations are dictated by the
compression program. For example, LHA has no option for archive
file comments.

PKZIP/
Procedure PKUNZIP LHA ARC-E ZOO
--------- ------- --- ----- ---
Archive yes yes no no
Un-Archive yes yes yes yes
Un-Archive Select yes yes no no
Archive Info yes yes no no
View/Print yes yes no no
Convert Format yes yes yes no
Self-Extracting yes yes no no
Comments yes no no no
Delete File yes yes no no
Freshen Archive yes yes no no
Test Archive yes yes no no


Even though not all procedures offered by the compression programs
are currently supported, you may setup a procedure not currently
supported by ARCHIVER in the Launch Pad.


Page 6
THE MAIN SCREEN **ARCHIVER for Windows
==================================================================

Procedures Selection List
-------------------------
The Procedure Selection List, which is on the right side of the
main menu is where you select the procedure you wish ARCHIVER to
perform. A listing of the procedures follows:

Archive - Compress Files into archive
Un-Archive - Extract all files from archive
Un-Archive Select - Extracted only selected files from archive
Archive Info - Obtain information about files within an archive
View/Print - View or Print the contents of an archive
Convert Format - Convert from one compression format to another
Self-Extracting - Create a self extracting archive
Comments - Add ZIP and file comments to a ZIP file
Delete File - Delete a file from an existing archive
Freshen Archive - Freshen an archive
Test Archive - Test an archive


Source Drive/Path/Files
------------------------
The Source Drive, Path and Files area is located on the top, left
area of the Main Screen. This is where you select the files to be
processed. Just double-click on the drive and/or path to manuever
around your valid drives and paths. The files will automatically
be updated based on the drive and path selected and the procedure
radio button selected. The file extension will automatically
change to reflect the correct extension for the procedure
selected. To select a file, click on the name of the file. Once
selected, the file name, including the full path, will appear in
the Selected window. When a file is selected, the Files Selected
and Bytes Selected windows are automatically updated.


File Mask Window
----------------
The File Mask Window located on the right, center of the main
screen shows the current file selection criteria for the
Selected file window. The criteria may be changed by typing in
a new mask. For example, to show all the COM files, merely type
"*.COM" into the File Mask window. The files displayed will
automatically be updated to reflect all files with a "COM"
extension.

Target Drive/Path
-----------------
The Target Drive and Path Windows are between the Source File
Window and the Procedures Window on the Main Screen. These operate
the same way the Source Drive and Path Windows function. The
target path is the path where the results of the procedure, if
any, are to be placed. For example, when archiving files into an
archive file, the target drive and path is where the compressed
file will be located after it is created.


Page 7
THE MAIN SCREEN **ARCHIVER for Windows
==================================================================

Selected Files List
-------------------
The Selected Files List is located below the Source and Target
Windows. When a file is selected in the Source File Window,
its full path (including drive) and name appear here.

==> As you will notice, files from many drives and paths may be
selected and processed in one operation.

Method Selection List
---------------------
This is a pull-down window on the Main Screen, just below the
Procedure Window. If you click on the window, a listing of the
methods currently supported is displayed here.

==> The method displayed in the Method Selection window is used
for creating archives, not un-archiving or editing existing
files. ARCHIVER utilizes the Smart File system, which allows
it to determine the correct method to use to perform actions
on existing files.

AutoScan Selection
------------------
ARCHIVER has the ability to AutoScan files for viruses. The
AutoScan feature is only enabled during procedures which unarchive
(decompress) files. If you wish to use the scanning programs to
scan files, directories or entire drives at other times, you may
set the virus scanning program up as an executable program in the
Launch Pad.

==================================================================

PKZIP Switches
--------------
A brief listing and explanation of the switches when processing
with PKZIP set as the method are as listed below. For more
detailed information, refer to the documentation for PKZIP.

Move Files (Delete Original) (-m)
----------------------------
This switch will add files to new or existing Zip files the
automatically delete the original or source files after the
program verifies the Zip file for accuracy. If an error does
occur, the original files will not be deleted.


Set ZIP File Time & Date to Oldest (-o)
----------------------------------
By default, the Zip file being created will be given the current
time and date. This switch sets the date of the Zip file to the
time and date of the latest file included in the Zip file.


Retain Original File Date (-k)
-------------------------
By default, the Zip file being created will be given the current
time and date. This switch, will maintain that date when the Zip
file is updated or modified.


Include Hidden or System Files (-whs)
------------------------------
This switch is used to override a PKZIP default which prevents
hidden and system files from being included in Zip files. When
this switch is on, if hidden and system files are selected for
archiving, they will be included in the Zip file.


Password Encrypt (-s)
----------------
This switch is used to encrypt the files in the Zip file. It
includes password protection. A password must be provided at the
time of archiving. The same password must be entered to
un-archive the file. You will be prompted by ARCHIVER for a
password during the archiving and un-archiving process.


Page 13
USING THE SWITCHES **ARCHIVER for Windows
==================================================================

PKUNZIP Switches
----------------
A brief listing and explanation of the switches when processing
with PKUNZIP set as the method are as listed below. For more
detailed information, refer to the documentation for PKUNZIP.


Create Directories on Extract (-d)
-----------------------------
If you have a Zip file which contains pathnames, this switch will
use those pathnames to extract the file. If the paths do not
exist, they will be created.


Overwrite Existing Files on Extract (-o)
-----------------------------------
This switch will extract files from a Zip file and automatically
overwrite any same-named files found in in the target file path.
You will not be prompted for confirmation prior to overwriting
these files.


Password Decrypt (-s)
----------------
This switch is used to decrypt the files in an encrypted Zip
file. You must use this switch to unarchive files which were
archived using the password encryption switch. You will be
prompted by ARCHIVER for a the un-archiving process. The
password must be the same one originally used to encrypt
the file.

LHA Switches
------------
A brief listing and explanation of the switches when processing
with LHA set as the method are as listed below. For more
detailed information, refer to the documentation for LHA.

Compress and Update (u)
-------------------
When active, this switch will compress and add selected files to
an archive. If LHA detects a file with the same name as the one
in the archive, then LHA selects the newest one to add to the
archive, by comparing the time stamp of each.

Move Files (Delete Original) (m)
----------------------------
This switch compresses and adds selected files to the archive.
When completed, LHA deletes all the source files.


Page 14
USING THE SWITCHES **ARCHIVER for Windows
==================================================================

Recursive (/r1)
---------
This switch enables LHA to archive and extract files recursively
from subdirectories. 'Recursively' means LHA searches all file(s)
from all subdirectories under the specified directory if there
are any. With this specific switch, LHA separates the given
pathname into a directory name and file name. LHA will then
recursively collect files(s) with the given name from all the
directories under the directory of the source file.

Ignore Time Comparison (/c2)
----------------------
With this switch, LHA ignores the checking of time stamps. LHA
will process the file, ignoring time stamp.

No Messages (/m2)
-----------
With this switch enabled during un-archiving, LHA will dearchive
every file. If it finds a file with the same name, LHA will
choose an unused file extension from 000-999.

Time Stamp of Newest File (/t1)
-------------------------
By default, LHA sets the time stamp of the LHA file to the date
when the file is created. When you enable this switch, LHA will
set the time stamp to the date of the newest file in the LHA
file.

No Compression (/z1)
--------------
LHA will create a archived file where none of the files are
compressed.

Compatible with LH113c (/o1)
----------------------
LHA will create an archive which is compatible with the older
version of LH113c.


Page 15
VIRUS SCANNING **ARCHIVER for Windows
==================================================================

ARCHIVER for Windows supports two virus scanning program which are
currently available: VIRUSCAN by McAfee Associates and VIRx by
Microcom. Both programs come in a shareware version. ARCHIVER for
Windows will enable virus scanning when one of the the AutoScan
check boxes are selected. The scanning will occur during ALL
procedures which unarchive files.


McAfee SCAN
-----------
VIRUSCAN (SCAN) by McAfee Associates is a virus detection and
identification program for the IBM PC and compatible computers.
VIRUSCAN will search a PC for for known computer viruses in
memory, the boot sector, the partition table and the files of a
PC.

VIRx SCAN
---------
The VIRx program is a virus detection-only version of VPCScan,
part of Microcom's Virex-PC. VIRx is fully functional in the
detection of known viruses, but cannot repair infected files.
The VPCScan program examines individual files, directories, a
single or series of floppy disks, and hard disks for the presence
of over 300 known viruses.

Page 15
THE LAUNCH PAD **ARCHIVER for Windows
==================================================================

About Launch Pad
----------------
Launch Pad is a program launch facility which is built into
ARCHIVER for Windows. If you have a favorite file viewer, editor
or any other program you find useful while using ARCHIVER, Launch
Pad will enable you to have easy access to them, including any
parameters required to be passed for proper execution.

==> We have found Launch Pad most useful in accessing our favorite
file viewers, editors, file managers, etc.


How it Works
------------
Launch Pad has two ways to execute a program. You may select the
file name in the file window or you may select from a custom list
of applications which you create and maintain.


Running From the File Window
----------------------------
To execute a program from the file window, browse your drives and
paths until you find the file you wish to execute. Click on the
file name. Then double click on the run method, Minimized,
Maximized or Normal. The program will execute and when completed
will return you to ARCHIVER and the Launch Pad. Note: any
parameters you wish to pass to the executing program should be
typed into the parameters window prior to running the program.

Programming an Application
--------------------------
Launch Pad will allow you to save the callup requirements for up
to seven applications. The following are the required steps.


STEP 1 - Locate the File:
Browse your drives and paths until you find the file
you wish to save as an application. Click on the file
name. The selected name will appear in the display box.

STEP 2 - Enter any parameters in the parameters box.

STEP 3 - Click the Save button.

The saved application file name will appear in a command box. To
execute the application, click the command box so its name appears
in the selection window. Then click on Minimized, Maximized or
Normal, depending on how you wish to run the application. There is
no need to re-enter the parameters to pass to the program. They
will be called up from the saved file automatically.
