In the InfoMaker readme file that came with the 5.0.02 upgrade, we were
told that we could install InfoMaker on the network and use the Setup
program in the //pwrshome/support/netinst subdirectory to set up 32 bit
users and automatically make the required registry entries. I have
installed both the 5.0.02 and 5.0.03 upgrades for both PB and IM., and
my network workstation installation .inf file only addresses PB.

Does anyone know where I can get the files necessary to support network
workstation installations of IM? Any assistance will be greatly
appreciated. I'm REALLY tired of manually loading registry updates!

Thanks in Advance

The way I setup network IM users:
- copy im.ini from the network to the local pc, e.g. in c:\pwrs
- in win.ini add the following section:
[Infomaker]
Initpath050=c:\pwrs (wherever your local copy of im.ini is)
- add [networkdrive]:\pwrs\sys32 to the path
- add a shortcut to the im050.exe on the network on the local pc
