Introduction
------------

The WW1000 disk included with this Application Note contains
VSHARE.386 version 3.11.0.401. This version of VSHARE.386 is
compatible with Windows 3.1, Windows for Workgroups 3.1, and Windows
for Workgroups 3.11.

NOTE: Microsoft Word version 6.0a for Windows and Microsoft Office
Manager version 4.2 install the same version of VSHARE.386 included
with this Application Note (3.11.0.401).

The only difference between the version of VSHARE.386 included with
this Application Note and the one supplied with Windows for Workgroups
3.11 (version 3.11.0.300) is the added support for Windows 3.1.

Using VSHARE.386
----------------

If you are using applications that support object linking and
embedding (OLE) 2.0, you must run either SHARE.EXE or VSHARE.386.
VSHARE.386 eliminates the need for SHARE.EXE when you run Windows 3.1
or Windows for Workgroups in 386 enhanced mode. If you run Windows 3.1
in standard mode, you still need to run SHARE.EXE. If you run
applications that are not compatible with SHARE.EXE, and you run
Windows 3.1 in 386 enhanced mode, you may be able to use VSHARE.386
instead of SHARE.EXE.

To install the updated VSHARE.386 file
--------------------------------------

If you are running Windows for Workgroups 3.1 or 3.11 in 386 enhanced
mode, you are already using VSHARE.386. If you are running Windows
3.1, use the following procedure to install VSHARE.386 version
3.11.0.401:

1. Quit Windows 3.1.

2. Insert the enclosed WW1000 disk in the appropriate floppy disk
drive.

3. To copy the file to the Windows SYSTEM subdirectory, type the
following at the MS-DOS command prompt and then press ENTER

copy :\vshare.386

where is the floppy disk drive containing the WW1000 disk
and is the drive and directory of your Windows SYSTEM
subdirectory.

For example, if the WW1000 disk is in drive A and your Windows
directory is called WINDOWS and is on drive C, type the following
at the MS-DOS command prompt and then press ENTER:

copy a:\vshare.386 c:\windows\system

4. Using a text editor (such as MS-DOS Editor), edit your AUTOEXEC.BAT
file and remove the command for SHARE.EXE.

5. Edit the [386Enh] section in your SYSTEM.INI file to add the
following line:

device=vshare.386
