Clarification of readme.txt

Reported by: Tom Heite Owned by:
Priority: minor Milestone:
Component: Documentation Version: 3.22.03
Keywords: Cc:


Starting with version 3.21.03 the file readme.txt contains the text

"It is recommended that you backup your system before installing this software. Using Warpin to uninstall this software will not revert your system back to the way it was."

Could this be made a bit more specific? Like which part of the system needs to be backed up, instead of backing up the complete system? And perhaps also a (brief) description what the changes are? Thank you.

Since the WPI uses scripts to modify the system, it is impossible to know exactly what gets changed. It is safest to backup your entire boot partition. At a minimum you should backup the following directory trees if they exist:

\ecs\bin \ecs\acpi \os2 \mptn\dll The directory the ETC environment variable points to Your CONFIG.SYS file

As stated in the readme, this only applies if you want to UNINSTALL the ACPI package. You can always install a new/different package. If you don't care about the files on your disk and just want to stop using the ACPI package, simply remove the PSD= line, APM.ADD, and AcpiDaemon?.exe from you CONFIG.SYS.
