This utility will convert an existing Merlin Convenience Pak based OS/2 installation to an eComStation GA 1.0 desktop. It is only required for people who used CD #2 of eComStation to upgrade their eCS Preview 1, 2 or 3 or OS/2
Warp 4 to eComStation code base version 1.0. With this tool you will be able to install the eCS BonusPak applications, get the improved eCS desktop and more.
This will require approximately 60 MB of additional diskspace on your boot drive.
You should run this tool after the installation of eCS CD #2 has finished.
When you invoke it, please make sure it detects your CD-drive and bootdrive correctly (it will present the detected drives). If it doesn't you can pass the driveletters as parameters to the program like this:
CONVERT.EXE targetdrive cddrive
(It could look like CONVERT C E for example)
When you are sure the letters are correct you can proceed by pressing the [OK] button.
After all files have been copied to your harddrive, you will be requested to reboot, please make sure you do, since it will finish only after running Phase 3 from WiseMachine.
When your computer has booted, WiseMachine will start and prompt you to register. If you do not register at this time, you will need to manually start WiseMachine and run Phase 3 from it, once you *do* register.
If registration succeeds, you will see the desktop being updated to the eComStation look and feel. It will preserve objects which you may have put on your desktop in the meantime.
After the desktop build completes, you will see 'eCSGuides' that will enable you to install the several BonusPak, eCS BonusPak and Third Party applications.
You can restart one of these eCSGuides later by starting WiseMachine, choose the menu option Utility -> Selective Install -> eCS Additional Applications
!!! This tool is not required if you installed eComStation from CD #1, you will have all features available allready when you did !!!
