have been experienced so far; however, in case you are the
unlucky one to discover a problem, I have included UNLZEXE,
which expands the programs to their full size.

If you use HyperShell as a help program, run from other
programs, you may also experience difficulties as the
compressed program has to fit in memory with the expanded
one whilst it is LOADING. In this case you should expand
HS.EXE to its full size. Also if you run HyperShell under
Windows or Desqview, you may prefer to use the expanded
