     8File Manager/2 (FM/2) starting with version 3.6 is being
     9built with OpenWatcom. Changing compilers can introduce
     10unexpected problem so you may want to backup your current
     11install, or at minimum have a working copy of the FM/2
     12version 3.5.9 warpin available for reinstall if problems arise.
     13To backup your current install simple zip up your install
     14directory with its subdirectories or copy them to a different
     15location.To restore simply copy the old FM/2 back to the
     16its original location. Remember you can't use the new FM/2
     17to do this since if it is running some files will be locked
     18and won't be replaced. If you didn't backup and need to go
     19back just install the 3.5.9 warpin package over the new
     20install. It will warn you that the install is newer but just
     21tell it to install anyway. The warpin install process is
     22designed to save all your customizations. Don't delete the
     23new install if you don't have a backup since this will result
     24in the loss of any custom chages you have made. If you need
     25to delete it to get the reinstall to work. Backup up the new
     26install and then copy the *.bmp, *.tls, *.dat, *.cmd & *.ini
     27files back to the install directory after the reinstall.
     28Don't copy the *.str files as they are version specific.
     29If you have problems be sure to report it (See Support
     30at the end of this file).

     376- Trying to run Global.exe from the command line in 4OS2
     377(perhaps other shells) results in the execution of 4OS2's "Global"
     378command. Global.exe can be run by placing it in quotes or
     379prefixing it with *. See 4OS2's documentation for more information.

     381- As with any OS/2 program significant changes (such as our
     382change to OpenWatcom) will result in the incompatibility of
     383older (VAC) exes with new dlls and viceversa. Attempting to run
     384OpenWatcom exes with a VAC dll loaded in memory or in your
     385libpath ahead of the new version will result in a SYS3175 in
     386popuplog.os2. The reverse gives a SYS2070. If you experience these
     387problems search your libpath for fm3dll.dll and remove or rename
     388it. Your libpath should have "." (without the quotes) as your
     389first entry to minimize the likelyhood of this problem. FM/2's
     390installer does not add the FM/2 directory to the libpath.

    4040The result is significant corruption of share memory forcing a reboot. We have limited drag

     49OpenWatcom exes with a VAC dll loaded in memory or in your libpath ahead of the new version

     53does not add the FM/2 directory to the libpath.
     54:p. &endash. Accessing a subdirectory on a vfat (fat) formatted USB removable drive may result
     55in a SYS3175. If this occurs try accessing the directory using "open" from the context (popup)
     56menu. Mounting it using netdrives' vfat plugin also solves the problem.
