Overview

How do you make Windows 3.1 - and the thousands of applications that run under it - even more powerful? By optimizing Windows applications to run on OS/2 for Windows in OS/2 and taking advantage of the advanced features that only OS/2 can provide. This text provides a practical, step-by-step guide to help users CONFIGURE, OPTIMIZE and CUSTOMIZE programs on the OS/2 desktop. Running Windows Applications in OS/2 provides a detailed overview of all the OS/2 features that Windows users want to use the most: migrating Windows applications to the OS/2 desktop; Windows and OS/2 applications, DDE, and clipboard; multimedia support in WIN-OS/2 and OS/2; OS/2 printing facilities; Windows multitasking; and Windows LAN support. From system setup, to application installation and customization, to the finer points of tuning and troubleshooting, Running Windows Applications in OS/2 provides tips, guidelines, and hints for improving Windows applications in the OS/2 environment that neither Microsoft nor IBM make available in their standard documentation. The text is both a primer and everyday reference for computer users who have seen the advantages of Windows and OS/2and want to have the best of both worlds. It also contains a wealth of tips and a discussion of the relationship between the two environments for programmers who wish to optimize Windows applications to run under OS/2.
