About This Update

The enclosed WW0634 disk contains an updated version of the LANMAN21.DRV file for use with Microsoft LAN Manager version 2.1 and Microsoft Windows operating system version 3.1.

  NOTE: By using the following Windows 3.1 driver (the "Software"),
  you are hereby agreeing to the included license agreement. Please
  review the LICENSE.TXT file on the enclosed disk.

The updated driver corrects a problem that produces the following error message when you install WinLogin:

   WinLogin Client Setup Error
   WinLogin Client Setup could not access the network path where this
   machine's configuration files are to be stored.
   Please ensure this machine has access to the remote network
   resource and retry.

Added Features

The updated driver also supplies Windows 3.1 with the following features:

  • Shows only one dialog box for both net connections and net disconnections. Previously, there were two separate dialog boxes.
  • Allows you to make multiple disconnections without having to leave the dialog box. Previously, the dialog box closed after each disconnection.
  • Allows you to view your previous connections in a drop-down list box from the Net Connections dialog box.
  • Includes a Reconnect At Startup check box that allows you to designate a connection as a "persistent connection" (that is, Windows 3.1 will make the connection to this share each time you

log

   on).

         copy <x>:\lanman21.drv <y>:\lanman.dos\netprog
