eCS Maintenance Tool 1.10.3

September 01, 2002 by Chuck McKinnis

Talk about the 11th hour. It is 22:45 MDT, and I said I would get this up NLT 31 Aug.

eCS Maintenance Tool 1.10.3 - This is the first release of the PM based eCS Maintenance Tool and is a replacement for all of the previous releases.

To get started, download eCS MT parts 1 and 2 and unzip them into a clean directory.

Read ecsmt.txt and start in.

You can run eCSMT, select the download status screen, and retrieve your FTP download logon.
After you select a drive for service, you can then download the rest of the eCS MT package (parts 3 - 5).
If you select a directory for fixes, you can then move all of your current fixes into it for processing.
I would appreciate any feedback regarding errors or function.
