This program is a simple utility provided for Windows users who would like a quick and easy
way to exit windows & more.

System Requirements:
---------------------
Windows 3.0 or Higher in protected mode (NOT REAL MODE)
A machine that can run Windows 3.0 higher
VBRUN200.DLL

NOTE: It is suggested that Beyond Windows Exit should be kept in your Startup Group (Win 3.1)
with the Run Minimized property checked. If you have Windows 3.0 you should open your
Windows.INI file and edit the line that says LOAD= to say LOAD=BWE.EXE.


This program has the following features:
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Drag & Drop - A program (bat, com or exe) may be dragged from File Manager and
dropped into Beyond Windows Exit (BWE). The path and filename will
be added to the Program Name text box.
Exit Windows- Exits Windows and brings you to the DOS prompt
Restart Windows- Restarts Windows
Exit/Run/Restart- Exits Windows, runs the DOS program listed in the Program Name
text box with the arguments listed in the Command Line Arguments
dialog.
Reboot System- Exits Windows and reboots your computer
Quit- Quits BWE

Program Name- The name of a program (bat, com or exe) is added here to control
what program is run in DOS. DO NOT INCLUDE any arguments for the
DOS program here!
Command Line Arguments- Any additonal arguments you may need for your DOS application.
(EXAMPLE: Program Name says - C:\DOS\EDIT.COM and Command Line
Arguments says C:\AUTOEXEC.BAT then Windows will exit and start
MS-DOS editor with your Autoexec.bat file loaded. When you exit
the MS-DOS editor, Windows will automatically restart.)

-----------------------------------------------
Command Line Arguments for Beyond Windows Exit
-----------------------------------------------
ArgumentDescription
==========================================================================
/xSame as clicking Exit Windows.
(EXAMPLE: C:\MYDIR\BWE.EXE /x)

/rSame as clicking Restart Windows.
(EXAMPLE: C:\MYDIR\BWE.EXE /r)

/sSame as clicking Reboot System.
(EXAMPLE: C:\MYDIR\BWE.EXE /s)

/t:prog,args/t: = Same as clicking Exit/Run/Restart.
prog = text to place in the program name text box.
args = text to place in the command line arguments text box.
(EXAMPLE: C:\MYDIR\BWE.EXE /t:C:\DOS\EDIT.COM,C:\AUTOEXEC.BAT)

NOTICE: If you need to use a forward slash as a arguement, you MUST instead
use a section mark ( press ALT and press 0167 on the NUMBER PAD ONLY).
Beyond Windows Exit will convert these to forward slashes before it
exits Windows.

*******************************************************************
W A R N I N G - For users of Central Point PC Tools for Windows
OR
Any other applications which restart
programs that where running when you exit
Windows
-------------------------------------------------------------------
Problem:
-------------------------------------------------------------------
Programs that restart applications which are running when Windows
exits will "remember" that BWE was running when you exited Windows.
If you use any command line arguments, then the next time you
start Windows, the program will BWE with those same command
line options. This will cause an infinte loop of exiting
Windows.
-------------------------------------------------------------------
Solution for PC Tools for Windows:
-------------------------------------------------------------------
If you are using the MultiDesk (Virtual Desktop) feature, you MUST
disable the RESTORE OPEN ITEMS ON ACTIVATION checkbox for the
Desktop where you run BWE.
-------------------------------------------------------------------
How to solve the problem after the infinite loop begins:
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1. Restart your computer WITHOUT starting Windows (boot up from
a floppy if necessary).

2. Change to the directory where BWE.EXE is located.

3. Rename BWE.EXE to BWE.SAV

4. Restart your computer (be sure to remove any floppies) and
start Windows.

5. Start File Manager and rename BWE.SAV back to BWE.EXE.

6. Be more careful next time!

History of Changes
----------------------------------------
1.50Added Command Line Parameters for BWE, A control box, and modified some internal code.
Batch files are no longer supported for the Exit/Run/Restart feature due to a bug in
the ExitWindows API call in Microsoft Windows which could cause your system to hang
when using this feature.


1.11Corrected a bug in the Exit/Run/Restart feature which would tell the user that
the program file was not a BAT, COM, or EXE when in fact it was.

BWE becomes shareware.


1.10Corrected a bug in the Exit/Run/Restart feature which would prevent this feature
from working properly.


1.00Original Release.
