Subject: OS/2 2.11 problems.
Summary: Having trouble reinstalling WIN-OS2 after applying 2.11; need help.
Keywords: 2.11, install, help, win-os2
I've recently applied the service pak to my existing 2.1 system. After
doing this I decided I wanted to use the multimedia features of OS/2 so I
installed MMOS2 from the service pak diskettes; everything went fine.
I then decided that I wanted sound in WIN-OS2 as well and felt that the
safest way to get this up and going was to reinstall WIN-OS2 from the
original 2.1 CDROM using the selective install program.
When I tried doing this, though, I got an error stating that I had the
wrong version of UNPACK.EXE and the installation halted.
After some detective work I realized that 2.11 installed a newer version
of UNPACK. "No problem," I thought, "I'll just copy the old UNPACK from
the CDROM to my hard drive and all will be well." Wrong!
I still get the same message using the original UNPACK supplied on the
CDROM itself. Digging further, I discovered that the selective install
program had itself been upgraded. Do I need to reinstall this also?
Am I going about this in the wrong way? Is there a way to selectivly
install WIN-OS2 from the service pak itself?
Is there an easier way to get WIN-OS2 to recognize my SB-Pro card without
going through the trouble of reinstalling WIN-OS2?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
