RUNNER is a program that allows you to run ANY program, batch file, or
.PIF file from an icon that sits at the bottom of the screen. You can
define as many RUNNERS as you need.

RUNNER is useful for running frequently used programs or batch files.
You can define multiple instances of RUNNER, each with its own program
defined. The title of each icon is defined by you, so you know
which is which. To execute the program that is defined for that
particular icon, just double click on the icon, or choose RUN from its
System Menu.

For example, you could have one RUNNER icon defined to run a disk-parking
program, and another RUNNER icon could be defined to run a special batch file
that you use a lot. How you use RUNNER is totally up to YOU!

INSTALLATION:

The installation of RUNNER is very simple. The following are the files
necessary for RUNNER to work properly:


RUNNER.EXE
main RUNNER program
RUNDLL.DLL
dynamic-link library containing several routines used by RUNNER
RUNNER.HLP
Windows v3.0 HELP file (not necessary, but extremely useful)
RUNNER.INI
private initialization file containing all the icon definitions and user
settings (automatically created if it doesn't exist)


Simply copy all the files to any directory that is on the DOS PATH statement.
The reason the directory must be on the PATH is because if the current
directory is changed, RUNNER will not be able to find RUNDLL.DLL or
RUNNER.HLP. Therefore, it is simpler to copy all the files to the WINDOWS
directory.

However, if you want all the files in a special directory, you must edit the
RUNNER.INI file and add the following line under the [RUNNER] header:

rundir=[full path of directory of your choice]
