/************************END LICENSE AGREEMENT************************/

WindowMagic is a utility that will let you easily assign an Icon to
the Program Mangers Group or Application Icons. It also has a very
useful Quick Launch feature. WindowMagic uses a drag & drop interface
to make icon customization quick, easy and fun.


1) Start Windows and select the Program Manager [File] & [Run] options
then type SYSEDIT [RETURN]

2) Select the WIN.INI file from the group of windows

3) Add WMAGIC.EXE to the end of the "run=" line. Please make sure that it
is at the END OF THE LINE! Be sure to include the directory name
if you did not install WindowMagic into the \WINDOWS or \WINDOWS\SYSTEM
directories, for example...

run=\WMAGIC\WMAGIC.EXE or run=other programs \WMAGIC\WMAGIC.EXE

Or alternatively you may place the WMAGIC>EXE in the Startup applications
Group file. If you choose this option ignore steps 1 through 3.

4) Finally, quit and restart Windows to activate the program, or use
the Program Manager [File] & [Run] menu items to start WindowMagic.

* Important for UPGRADING USERS!!!
* If you downloaded an early version of WindowMagic, it would be a good
* idea to do a del \windows\wm*.* before unzipping the new files! A lot
* of file names were changed.
* Be SURE to replace the run=WMDRIVER.EXE with run=WMAGIC.EXE in your

If you are reinstalling WindowMagic you may delete the CPALETTE.DLL
& BWCC.DLL files. Be aware that other commercial programs may have
also installed these two files, so you may want to back them up first.

You may also delete the PMSUPER.DLL file on the Windows directory.
PLEASE do this at the DOS prompt NOT in a DOS Box. That is to say
don't do this with WindowMagic loaded!!!

Also, Please note that since new files are being loaded you will have
lost all of your previous Group icon selections. This won't happen in
future releases.

After re-installation: When you restart Windows, if you get a
"WMDRIVER.EXE File Not Found" message, replace the line
"run=WMDRIVER.EXE" in the WIN.INI file with "run=WMAGIC.EXE".
(See above installation instructions)

* How to use

WindowMagic uses a simple drag and drop interface. To use the utility
select the [File] item from the Program Managers menu. You will notice
an additional item on the menu.

1. Select [WindowMagic]
You will be presented with a popup menu of all available choices
for WindowMagic. Select "View Icon Palette" and then choose
an .EXE,.DLL or .WMP file. Hint: try a .WMP first. The WMP file
is located in the directory that you unzipped the program in.

2. The icons stored in the file you have choosen will be presented in
a paletteized form. Simply click and hold the left mouse button when
the cursor is over an icon you wish to use. Now drag the icon over a
Program Manager group or Application icon and release.
(The cursor will change from a circle/slash to a B&W icon
when it is over a valid drop area.)

3. Once you get the hang of dragging and dropping icons, try Creating your
own Icon Palette. With WindowMagic you can Import Icons from just about
anywhere. Place several palettes on the screen and you're ready for
hours of fun selecting, collecting, and mixing your own icon libraries!

* *
* *

1 Palette Management functions are now fully active!!!

a minimized group icon. Select your favorite program and
release the button. Or, select "Set FastLaunch" and highlight
your most-used application. Double click (right button) the

Everybody seems to love this feature!
