Set it up either as a desktop icon or on a function key in your standard TOS
desktop and just run it.  It causes a reset in Single TOS and will reboot
with MAGXBOOT.PR already properly renamed.

It makes additional windowed dialogs available.  Versions from v1.11 and
below aren't needed with Magic (it adds the dialogs to systems that don't use
Magic) but, depending on the applications you run, WDialog v1.96 is needed
even with Magic v5.11.

Place it in your Auto folder before NVDI, accordig to the NVDI programming
docs.

Can't help you here.  However...

This allows you to use COPS in singleTOS.  It may have other functions, but
that is the one I know about.  It gives you extended window functions that
aren't normally available.
