The package is provided as a WarpIn package. Installation is performed by a double click on the base WPI file (OOoWPS100.wpi).
Please note that WarpIn 1.0.15 or higher is required.
You can download the latest WarpIn package from http://warpin.netlabs.org
[ WPS data file class ]
The WPS classes do not require OpenOffice.org to be installed to allow displaying of properties and preview thumbnail.
OpenOffice.org for eComstation and OS/2 must be installed to allow drag'n'drop printing and opening of files.
Use of the OpenOffice.org quickstart feature allows faster printing and opening, otherwise a new instance of the OpenOffice.org binaries will be invoked.
[ WPS-Wizard support ]
If you have installed WPS-Wizard (see below) please select the main WPS-Wizard installation directory, otherwise scripts cannot be placed in the proper place.
