--------------------------------

1. BEFORE YOU INSTALL SMARTSUITE

--------------------------------

Before you try to install SmartSuite 96, you should close all

Windows programs and shut down all anti-virus protection programs.

Also, be sure to read "Exploring SmartSuite 96" to be sure your

system meets all the hardware and software requirements.

A. If You Are a Network Administrator

-------------------------------------

If you are a network administrator, see the READNET.TXT file on your

CD-ROM (or on Disk 1 if you are installing from disk). READNET.TXT

contains information about supported networks, performing server and

node installs, running an automated Install, and other topics.

B. New Default Directory Structure

----------------------------------

SmartSuite 96 offers a new default directory structure. The new

structure makes it easier to maintain and upgrade your products, since

your work, backup, SmartMasters, samples, and other directories are

independent of your main product directory. Lotus recommends that you

install all of your Lotus products under this new directory structure.

This diagram illustrates the new directory structure:

LOTUS\ (Main Lotus product directory for all Lotus products)

|

|

|---<main_prod_dir1>\ (Executables and other core

| files for one Lotus product, e.g., \WORDPRO)

|

|---<main_prod_dir2>\ (Executables and other core

| files for another Lotus product, e.g., \123)

| .

| . (other Lotus products here, for example:)

| . \SMARTCTR \APPROACH

| . \SCRNCAM \ORGANIZE

| . \ACROREAD \FLG

|

|---SMASTERS\ (SmartMasters for all Lotus products)

| |

| |--<prod1> (SmartMasters for Lotus product 1)

| |

| |--<prod2> (SmartMasters for Lotus product 2)

|

|---SAMPLES\ (Samples for all Lotus products)

| |

| |--<prod1> (Samples for Lotus product 1)

| |

| |--<prod2> (Samples for Lotus product 2)

|

|---WORK\ (Work directory for all Lotus products)

| |

| |--<prod1> (Work directory for Lotus product 1)

| |

| |--<prod2> (Work directory for Lotus product 2)

|

|---BACKUP\ (Backup directory for all Lotus products)

| |

| |--<prod1> (Backup directory for Lotus product 1)

| |

| |--<prod2> (Backup directory for Lotus product 2)

|

|---COMPNENT\ (Shared components for all Lotus products)


C. Making the Install Program Efficient

---------------------------------------

To maximize the efficiency of the SmartSuite Install program, you

should perform the following procedure to reclaim lost clusters on

your hard drive(s) before you run Install. You do not have to

convert the lost clusters to files.

On systems using Windows 95, complete the following steps:

1. Open Windows Explorer.

2. Right-click your hard-drive letter (for example, C:).

3. Choose Properties.

4. Click Tools.

5. Click Check Now under Error-checking status.

D. Server and Distribution Install

----------------------------------

Lotus recommends that you install the Server and Distribution versions

of SmartSuite 96 in new or empty directories.

E. Installing SmartSuite 96 When Running Windows from a Server

------------------------------------------------------------

If you install Approach 96 as part of SmartSuite 96 while logged into

a server with read/write privileges to a server-based Windows directory,

the Install program copies some ODBC drivers for Oracle and MS SQL

Server to the \WINDOWS\SYSTEM directory on the server.

To prevent this from happening, log into the server with read-only

privileges to the Windows directory on the server. Then,

* If you are installing SmartSuite as a server application, the

Install program copies the ODBC driver files to the \LOTUS directory.

* If you are installing SmartSuite as a standalone application, the

Install program copies the ODBC driver files to your personal

\WINDOWS\SYSTEM directory.

F. Installing SmartSuite 96 on Windows NT 3.51

----------------------------------------------

If you plan to install SmartSuite 96 on a system running Windows NT 3.51

or later, you should have administrator privileges on that system so

that files that should be copied to \WINDOWS\SYSTEM32 are updated if

they are in use by another program. If you do not have administrator

privileges, shut down all applications and restart Windows NT before

you install SmartSuite 96.

SmartCenter 96 uses Windows 95 functionality that is not available in

Windows NT. Therefore, you cannot use SmartCenter 96 on a system

running Windows NT. In addition, ScreenCam 2.1 will play, but not

record, on systems running Windows NT.

If you are using Notes 3.x, you cannot attach an Approach 96, Word Pro

96, or Freelance Graphics 96 file to mail, nor can you use TeamMail to

route mail on systems running Windows NT. In addition, you cannot use

Notes/FX between Word Pro 96, Freelance Graphics 96, Approach 96, and

Notes 3.x.

G. Multilingual Installation

----------------------------

You can install copies of SmartSuite 96 in multiple languages. This

capability is part of the Lotus strategy for multilingual computing.

NOTE: SmartCenter 96, Word Pro 96, Freelance Graphics 96, and Approach

96 support this strategy of multilingual computing. You can run these

applications in different languages at the same time. ScreenCam 2.1,

DocOnline, Organizer 2.1, and 1-2-3 Release 5 do not support this

feature. You can run these applications only in the language that

was last installed.

If you want to install SmartSuite 96 in more than one language, Lotus

recommends that you install all of the SmartSuite 96 applications first.

The first language you install becomes the default language. Then you

can choose which applications to install in subsequent languages.

To add an additional language version of SmartCenter 96, Word Pro 96,

Freelance Graphics 96, or Approach 96, you must run SmartSuite Install

again. The Install program informs you that you already have a copy of

the application in a different language, and preserves the directory

structure of the default language. Lotus recommends that you do not

change this default directory.

Remember to deselect ScreenCam 2.1, DocOnline, Organizer 2.1, and 1-2-3

Release 5 before you begin to copy files in the secondary language,

unless you want to overwrite these applications with the secondary

language.

When you install different language versions of SmartCenter 96, Install

will create a folder for each language installed. For each language

installed after the default language, the folder name will include

a 2-character ISO tag to identify the language. If English is the

default language, for example, then English applications will be in

a folder called "Lotus Programs," and French applications will be in

a folder called "Lotus Programs - FR." SuiteStart will only launch

the default language.

As you add additional language versions of SmartSuite 96, the Install

program populates the Start menu with icons for the additional

languages. For example, the icon for the German version of Word Pro

96 is labeled "Lotus Word Pro - Deutsch."

We strongly recommend that you do not install more than one language

of SmartSuite in a single server directory.

----------------------------

2. DURING SMARTSUITE INSTALL

----------------------------

A. Installing SmartSuite 96

---------------------------

Follow these instructions to begin installing SmartSuite 96:

1. Insert Disk 1 or the CD-ROM into the appropriate drive.

2. (Windows 95) Choose Start - Run.

(Windows NT(TM) 3.51) Choose File - Run from the Program Manager.

3. Enter X:\INSTALL in the Run dialog box, where X: is your disk

drive or CD-ROM drive.

4. After Install is complete, restart Windows.

Install consists of a series of dialog boxes that are generally

self-explanatory. If you need more information when using a dialog

box, choose Help by clicking Help or pressing ALT+H.

B. Ignoring a Size Field

------------------------

During SmartSuite Install, in the "Select SmartSuite Applications to

Customize" dialog box, there is a list box that includes a size field.

That field shows the default size of an application. If you customize

an application and delete features, the dialog box does not update the

size field, even though the application now requires less disk space.

-------------------------------

3. AFTER YOU INSTALL SMARTSUITE

-------------------------------

A. Reading Individual Application README Files

----------------------------------------------

After you install SmartSuite, you can read the README files of the

individual applications for more information. The README files reside

in each application's directory (for example, C:\LOTUS\123\README.TXT).

To access these files, select Start - Programs - Lotus User Assistance.

--------------------------

4. EXTRA CONTENT ON THE CD

--------------------------

Information in this section applies only if you are installing

SmartSuite 96 from a CD-ROM.

A. 1-2-3 and Freelance Graphics File Translator

-----------------------------------------------

The 1-2-3 and Freelance Graphics File Translator converts

spreadsheet and presentation graphics files between the OS/2(R)

and Windows file formats. You can convert to and from the 1-2-3

WG2 and WK4 file formats, and to and from the Freelance PRS and

PRE file formats.

NOTE: This utility is only available with an English user interface.

NOTE: The 1-2-3 and Freelance Graphics File Translator will not

convert .PRZ files created using Freelance Graphics 96.

For more information about installing and using the 1-2-3 and Freelance

Graphics File Translator, refer to the WINTRANS.TXT file in the

/EXTRA/TRANS directory on the SmartSuite 96 CD-ROM.

B. Additional LotusScript Help Files for Word Pro 96

----------------------------------------------------

If you received your copy of SmartSuite 96 on CD-ROM, Word Pro 96

specific LotusScript Help was included but was not automatically

installed. For more information about accessing these files, refer to

the Word Pro 96 README file.

C. Installing Additional Language Tools

----------------------------------------

NOTE: This information applies only if you are installing

SmartSuite 96 from CD-ROM.

The SmartSuite 96 for Windows CD-ROM contains additional

dictionary, hypenator, thesaurus and grammar checker files

for Word Pro and other products. Installing these files will

allow you to spell check and correct documents in other

languages. These files are located in the \EXTRAS\LANGUAGE

directory on the CD-ROM.

The files contained in this directory are:

file(s) for any component, you should copy the .DIC file(s)

you want into the directory on your hard disk where the existing

dictionaries for this component are located.

(For 16-bit components this directory will normally be \WINDOWS\LOTUSAPP\SPELL

but for 32-bit applications it will normally be \LOTUS\COMPNENT\SPELL).

You should then follow the instructions from relevant component's

documentation to configure the component to use the new language

tool(s) you have just installed.



----------------------------------------

5. INFORMATION FOR 1-2-3 RELEASE 5 USERS

----------------------------------------

A. 123 .INI File Settings

-------------------------

If you install 1-2-3 Release 5 on a system that contains a version

of 1-2-3 that is earlier than Release 4, you must install Release 5

to a new directory (Lotus recommends that you install Release 5 to

LOTUS\123). The old directory remains intact and none of the 123W.INI

settings carry over to Release 5.

If you install 1-2-3 Release 5 on a system that contains 1-2-3

Release 4 or 4.01, you can install the application in a new directory

or over the existing version. Regardless of your choice, certain

settings that exist in the 123R4W.INI file automatically carry over

into the new 123R5W.INI file. These settings are:

[COUNTRY]

driver=

[AUTOLOAD ADDINS]

[PRINTER]

DefaultPrt=

[CONFIG]

beep=

undo=

autoexec=

B. Hard-Disk Space Requirements

-------------------------------

If you install 1-2-3 Release 5 in a directory that contains a

previous release of 1-2-3 for Windows, you may need as much as 19MB

of available hard-disk space, depending on the options you choose to

install.

If your Windows 95 directory is on a different drive from your 1-2-3

directory, the drive that contains your Windows directory should have

2MB to 4MB of available hard-disk space.

C. Customized Sets of SmartIcons

--------------------------------

If you modified any of the sets of SmartIcons in a previous release

of 1-2-3 for Windows, and have not yet installed Release 5, follow

these steps to ensure your icon sets display the same in Release 5:

1. Create a temporary directory on an available drive.

2. Copy the .SMI files for the sets of SmartIcons you have customized

from the icon directories 123R4W\PROGRAMS\SHEETICO,

123R4W\PROGRAMS\GRAPHICO, and so on, to the temporary directory.

3. Install 1-2-3 Release 5.

4. Copy the .SMI files into the 1-2-3 Release 5 icons directories.

If you have already installed 1-2-3 Release 5, but have not yet deleted

your previous version of 1-2-3 for Windows, follow steps 2 and 4 in the

preceding procedure.

--------------------------------------

6. INFORMATION FOR ORGANIZER 2.1 USERS

--------------------------------------

A. Protecting Files with a Password

-----------------------------------

You can set passwords on your Organizer 2.1 files so that others can

view, but not change, your schedule, names and addresses, and other

information. When your files are password-protected, SmartCenter 96

prompts you for the password when you first open the calendar and

address drawers, and when you change or add information.

If you mistype your password, SmartCenter 96 displays a blank copy of

your calendar or address drawer. To restore these drawers, simply close

and then reopen the drawer.

You may want to turn off the password protection for your local copy of

your calendar and addresses, so that you are not prompted for a password

each time you change information.

B. Installing Organizer Group Scheduling Agents

-----------------------------------------------

To use group scheduling, talk to your network administrator. Before

installing Organizer 2.1 with group scheduling on a local area network,

network administrators need to review the Organizer Release 2.1

Administrator's Guide.

If you are installing from disk, you can get the Organizer

Administrator's Guide and the Agent Disks by contacting Lotus Customer

Support. If you are installing from CD-ROM, the Organizer Release 2.1

Administrator's Guide is included as part of the SmartSuite DocOnline.

The Agent software is available on the SmartSuite CD-ROM in the

\ENGLISH\WINAGENT and \ENGLISH\OS2AGENT directories.

The Lotus Organizer Release 2.1 Administrator's Guide is intended for

administrators who use Organizer mail-based or single-server scheduling.

It is not intended for Organizer Personal Information Manager (PIM)

users.

If you are installing the agent software from disk, use the INSTALL.EXE

file located on the Agent Disk for your operating system. If you are

installing from the SmartSuite CD-ROM, use INSTALL.EXE located in the

\ENGLISH\WINAGENT directory (if you use Windows 95) or in the

\ENGLISH\OS2AGENT directory (if you use OS/2).

NDEPLOY.WRI and CDEPLOY.WRI are Windows 95 Write files that answer

common deployment questions for administrators who use Organizer group

scheduling with Lotus Notes or cc:Mail, respectively. The files are

not intended for administrators who use Organizer 2.1 for single-server

scheduling, or who do not use group scheduling. The files are located

in the \LOTUS\ORGANIZE\ADMIN directory after installation from

SmartSuite.

TECHNOTE.OR2 provides information for Organizer 2.1 administrators and

advanced users. The file is located in the \LOTUS\WORK\ORGANIZE

directory after installation from SmartSuite.

------------------------------------

7. INFORMATION FOR WORD PRO 96 USERS

------------------------------------

A. To Install over Ami Pro

--------------------------

By default, Word Pro 96 is installed into a LOTUS\WORDPRO directory. It

will not overwrite any Ami Pro program files. To make editing of your

existing Ami Pro files easier, copy all the style sheets in your

\AMIPRO\STYLES directory to the LOTUS\SMASTERS\WORDPRO directory once

you complete the installation.

B. To Install over Word Pro

---------------------------

If you have a copy of Word Pro for Windows 3.1 on your system, Install

asks whether you want to remove the previous release. If you choose to

remove it, Install asks if you want it to create a backup copy of your

SmartMaster sets and if you want the files in the WORK directory of

the previous release moved to the WORK directory for the new release.

----------------------------------------------

8. INFORMATION FOR FREELANCE GRAPHICS 96 USERS

----------------------------------------------

A. Default Installation

-----------------------

The following features are not installed during a default

installation of Freelance Graphics 96:

* Foreign language spell-check dictionaries

* LotusScript Help files (LotusScript, Chart LotusScript, and

Freelance Graphics LotusScript)

* Import filters: DXF, PICT, Micrografx DRW, HGL, GAL, RND,

GIF(filter and .INI), TGA (filter and .INI), and

WPG (two filters and two .INI files).

* Export filters: TGA (filter and .INI), MET (filter and .INI),

AI & EPS (EMPS-32.FLT and .INI), and

WPG (two filters and two .INI files).

* Sound files

* The Freelance Graphics Presentation and Review Library

* 64 GoldDisk movie files

* 60 SmartMaster looks

* 1 diagram

You can install all these features by selecting Custom when you

install Freelance Graphics 96. If Freelance Graphics 96 is already

installed, you can run Install again, select Custom, and choose

only those features you did not previously install.

------------------------------------

9. INFORMATION FOR APPROACH 96 USERS

------------------------------------

A. Installing Approach from a Read-Only File Server Directory

-------------------------------------------------------------

If you install Approach 96 to a file server, and then make the

Approach directory on the file server read-only for Approach users,

problems may occur when they run the Tour and Help demos. If you

must make the server directory read-only for the users, make the

following directories read-write to prevent problems:

* <drive path>\LOTUS\APPROACH\TOUR

* <drive-path>\LOTUS\SAMPLES\APPROACH

B. Installing to Directories Other than the Default

---------------------------------------------------

If you install Lotus Approach 96 to a directory with a name that

contains a hyphen (-), you will not be able to use the Uninstall

program to remove this installation of Approach 96.

-------------

10. UNINSTALL

-------------

The Uninstall program allows you to remove all files associated with a

selected Lotus application that were copied to your system when the

application was installed. It also removes all program folders or

groups, shortcut icons, icons, and Windows registry entries.

NOTE: In SmartSuite 96, you can use the Uninstall feature to uninstall

SmartCenter 96, Word Pro 96, Approach 96, and Freelance Graphics 96.

You cannot use Uninstall to remove ScreenCam 2.1, DocOnline, Organizer

2.1, or 1-2-3 Release 5. In addition, you cannot use Uninstall to

remove files added when you installed a second or subsequent language.

Uninstall displays messages and prompts you before it removes any user-

modified file, so you can decide whether to remove the file. You can

rerun Uninstall until all files associated with the application are

removed.

Uninstall also creates an output log and displays error messages, so

you can track and review the entire process. Uninstall overwrites the

output log each time it is run, so you may want to rename this file if

you want to save it. Ask your network administrator where Uninstall

saves this file.

Uninstall does not delete files in your WORK or personal directories,

or other files that were changed since they were installed. It will

not delete a directory until all directories and files are removed from

that directory. In addition, Uninstall will not remove files copied to

a file server during a Server Install.

Uninstall displays a prompt before it removes many files, in case you

do not want to remove a specific file. If you decide not to remove a

file and the product is not removed completely, then Uninstall will

also leave the files it needs to run again, including the product .INF

and CINSTALL.INI files. If you want to run Uninstall again, do not

remove these files manually.

In addition, Uninstall will not remove files needed by another Lotus

product. Be careful not to remove these shared files manually, or

other Lotus applications will not run correctly. Uninstall will remove

these files when it removes the last Lotus application.

A. How to Invoke Uninstall

--------------------------

Uninstall is available to users from the Start menu (Windows 95) or

the Program Manager (Windows NT 3.51).

Windows 95 users can run Uninstall by completing these steps:

1. Choose Start - Settings - Control Panel.

2. Double-click Add/Remove Programs.

3. Select the program to be removed.

4. Click Remove.

Windows NT 3.51 users can invoke Uninstall by clicking the Uninstall

icon for the product to be removed.

----------------------------

11. Windows 95 Compatibility

----------------------------

A. Long File Names

------------------

ScreenCam 2.1, DocOnline, 1-2-3 Release 5, and Organizer 2.1 file names

maintain the DOS 8-character naming convention. These applications do

not support the Windows 95 long file name feature.

* If you save a file with a long file name in another application,

and then open it in 1-2-3 Release 5 or Organizer 2.1, the file name

changes to its DOS equivalent, which displays in the Open File

dialog box. For example, in Notepad, "this is a long file name"

becomes "THISIS~1.TXT" when you open the file in 1-2-3 Release 5.

Notice that Windows 95 resolves the differences between DOS names

by adding a tilde (~) and numbers.

* In Windows Explorer, if you double-click one of these application's

files with a long file name, the application opens the file with

its DOS-equivalent name, which displays in the application's title

bar. The same is true if you rename an existing file in Windows

Explorer.

B. Universal Naming Convention (UNC)

------------------------------------

The Windows Universal Naming Convention (UNC) isn't supported by

ScreenCam 2.1, DocOnline, 1-2-3 Release 5, or Organizer 2.1. These

applications cannot be installed to a UNC path. If you try to install

them to a UNC path (for example, \\SERVER\DRIVE:LOTUS\123), an error

message is displayed. To correct the problem, map a network drive to

the UNC path and set it to reconnect at login.

---------------------------------

12. CROSS-APPLICATION INFORMATION

---------------------------------

A. Using OLE Services

---------------------

Word Pro 96 OLE services may have been disabled during installation if

8MB of RAM or less were available. If so, you cannot use OLE drag &

drop, copy the OLE formats of data to the Clipboard from Word Pro 96,

or embed or link from another application to a Word Pro 96 object via

the Clipboard. To enable Word Pro 96 OLE, select File - User Setup -

Word Pro Preferences and deselect "OLE until needed" from the Disable

box on the General tab.

B. OLE Automation

-----------------

Approach 96, Freelance Graphics 96, and Word Pro 96 support OLE

Automation. Refer to the LotusScript IDE Help for more information

about OLE Automation.

------------------------------

13. LOTUSSCRIPT RELEASE NOTES

------------------------------

For detailed information on the LotusScript 3.0 language and

programming environment, see the following documentation:

* LotusScript Language Help (available from the Help menu in

Word Pro 96, Approach 96, and Freelance Graphics 96)

* LotusScript IDE Help (available from the Help menu in Word

Pro 96, Approach 96, and Freelance Graphics 96)

* LotusScript Programmer's Guide (return the coupon found in

the SmartSuite 96 package to receive this document)

A. Integrated Development Environment (IDE)

-------------------------------------------

Whenever you make substantial changes to your script in the IDE, such

as adding many lines of code or correcting errors, be sure to press F2

to recompile the script; this ensures that you are seeing the most

recent set of error messages.

When writing scripts in the IDE, you may encounter the following

limitations:

* The IDE browser may crash when you are expanding a method

belonging to a class that is defined in an LSX containing a lengthy

argument list.

* The Inspector doesn't display properties for native classes.

* While debugging a script, you cannot step into a class destructor,

an %INCLUDEd file, or a USEd module.

* The Undo command is disabled when you navigate to another section

of your script.

* When you import a procedure, comments appearing before that

procedure are moved to the declarations section. To ensure that

the comments remain with the procedure, relocate them within the

procedure's definition before importing the procedure into the

IDE.

* If you change a class to a property, the associated methods

become module-level procedures.

* Directives are not evaluated until you compile your script.

* The Inspector does not display complete information about Variants

containing OLE objects.

* If you use a ReDim statement within a loop, the Debugger may

generate an error when you step to that statement, even though the

code runs correctly outside of the Debugger.

B. LotusScript Language

-----------------------

You may encounter the following limitations while programming in the

LotusScript language:

* If a run-time error occurs within a class constructor's parameter

expression, the class constructor halts execution. After the

error occurs, the object is deleted, and LotusScript will attempt

to execute the class destructor. This may cause another run-time

error if the destructor relied on the action of the constructor.

* Circular structures are not properly destroyed by LotusScript, and

the memory for those structures is not released until you end

the session.

* Errors occurring within a class destructor must be handled within

that procedure; error-handling routines outside of the destructor

cannot trap errors occurring within the destructor.

* Converting between decimal numbers and strings:

For converting between decimal numbers and strings, the conversion

functions CDbl and CStr should be used in favor of Val and Str.

CDbl and CStr honor the Windows setting for the decimal symbol,

while Val and Str do not.

For example, if the decimal symbol is comma (,), the number one-

and-five-tenths is represented as the string "1,5". The code

shows how to convert this string to its numeric form:

Dim x As Double

x = CDbl( "1,5" )

X now contains the decimal value of one-and-five-tenths. The CStr

function is used to convert it to a string containing the regional

digit separator:

Dim y As String

Dim y As Double

x = 1.5

y = CStr( X )

results in y containing the string "1,5" (again assuming the

specified decimal symbol is the comma).

NOTE: Although CDbl will always work, you may want to use CSng or

CCur instead, depending on the desired data type of the result,

or the magnitude of the number being converted. This is especially

important for international users.

* The UBound function sometimes returns incorrect data when used with

a dynamic array that is passed as an argument to a procedure.

C. Win16/Win32 Differences

--------------------------

* On Win32, ChDir "C:" and ChDir " " do nothing; on Win16 they

generate the error "Path not found."

* On Win32, you can use Name to rename a file using the same name

(Name myFile As myFile); on Win16 this generates the error

"Permission denied."

* On Win32, ChDrive "A:" with no disk in the drive generates the

error "Device unavailable"; on Win 16, it does nothing.

14. KNOWN ISSUES

----------------

A. Organizer 2.1 and SmartCenter 96

-----------------------------------

If you run a Node Install for Organizer 2.1 and then install

SmartCenter 96, the Address and Calendar drawers may not be able to

detect your Organizer files. Ask your Network Administrator to copy

the following files from the local SmartCenter directory to the

Organizer directory on the network file server.

* ORG16.DLL

* ORG32.DLL

* ORGAPI.DLL

B. Displaying ScreenCam Movies

------------------------------

The ScreenCam movies provided with SmartSuite 96 may not display

properly if you are using large fonts. To view the movies correctly,

choose Display Properties - Settings - Font size and select Small

fonts.

C. Specifying Directories on a File Server

------------------------------------------

If you want to perform a Distribution Install or manually copy the disks

or CD-ROM to a file server, do not specify a directory name that

includes a space (for example, \SMARTSUITE 96).

D. Using the TCP Network Driver

-------------------------------

If TCP is set as a port for Lotus Notes Release 3.x, the SmartSuite

application may crash when you attach a file from Approach 96, Word

Pro 96, or Freelance Graphics 96 to mail. To prevent the application

from crashing, disable the TCP port in Notes.

E. Using Internet Files

-----------------------

The .URL files shipped with SmartSuite 96 should work with any Web

Browser. If you encounter any problems, contact your Internet vendor.

F. Opening Windows 3.x Files

----------------------------

If you open a Windows 3.1 application immediately after you install

SmartSuite 96, an error message may appear when you choose either

File - Open or File - Save, saying that the selected drive cannot be

accessed. To make this drive accessible, follow these steps:

1. Click Cancel until all dialog boxes are closed.

2. Minimize the application.

3. Choose Start - Accessories - Notepad.

4. Switch back to the application.

5. Choose File - Open or File - Save.
