The Print Que for Windows Purpose: The normal procedure for printing a document in Microsoft Excel and Word for Windows involves waiting for the application to send the entire document to the Print Manager before the next document can be created or loaded. This program is designed to allow the users of these programs to create a list of the documents and/or spreadsheets to be printed, which THE QUE will then print. Hardware/Software Requirements: IBM Compatible 286 or 386 Computer Microsoft Windows version 3.0 or higher, running in Standard or 386 Enhanced Mode. Microsoft Excel version 3.0 or higher Microsoft Word for Windows version 1.1 or higher MS DOS version 3.3, 4.01, or 5.0 (untested on other versions) Installation: Copy the QUE.EXE, VBRUN100.DLL, and WNDFIND.DLL files into the WINDOWS directory. (for this version of THE QUE, these files must be in a directory named "WINDOWS") Operating Conventions: THE QUE, like other Windows applications, is made up of Drive, Directory, File, and Text Boxes and Command Buttons. These controls can be operated in several ways, including mouse, keyboard, or a combination of the two. Mouse operation: To operate a Drive List Box click on the down arrow on the right side of the box to make the list appear below the box. If there are more drives than can be shown, use the scroll bars to advance the list. To select the correct drive Double - Click on it. Selecting directories and file names uses a similar process, except that the lists are visible without using the down arrow. After a directory is selected, its icon will change from an image of a closed file folder to one of an open folder, and the icons for any parent directories will also be shown as open folders. To operate the different command buttons, click on them. Keyboard Operation: Operation of the controls with the keyboard is done by first selecting the control to be operated on, using the "TAB" key to move among the program controls. (Combining "SHIFT" and "TAB" causes backward movement through the controls.) When a box is "active,"the first item in its list will be highlighted and have a dashed line around it. When a button is "active," a dashed line will appear around the command in the center of the button. To operate the Drive List Box after selecting it, hold down the "CTRL" key while pressing the "DOWN ARROW" key. When the list of drives appears below the box, use the arrow keys to highlight the desired drive and press the "ENTER" key to register your selection. As in mouse operation, directories and files are selected in the same way as drives, except that there is no drop down list. To operate a Command Button after selecting it, press the "ENTER" key to start the command. Mouse/Keyboard Combination: The Text Boxes on the setup screen are the only controls that can be operated using a combination of the mouse and the keyboard. To enter the program path, click the mouse cursor on the line where a directory path is to be entered, the type in the desired path. Initializing THE QUE: When THE QUE is opened for the first time, an initialization screen will appear. If using a mouse, click on the round "button" next to one of the application names, then either type in the appropriate directory path or select the drive, directory(s), and file name for the application as explained above. Repeat the process for the other application. If not using a mouse, Select the button for one of the applications as explained above. Either type in the directory path for the application or select the drive, directory(s), and file name for the application as explained above. Repeat the process for the other application. Program Operation: Use the mouse or keyboard to select the drive, directory, and file names of the documents and/or spreadsheets that are to be printed. Select a file either by double-clicking on its name or by clicking once on the file name and pressing the "Add" button on the right side of the screen. Files can be removed from the que by selecting the filename in the "Files in the Que" box and pressing the "Delete" button. When the list in the "Files in the Que" box is correct, press the "Start Que" button to put THE QUE into operation. NOTE: If files in the que are saved on a floppy disk, that disk must be in the drive while THE QUE is operating. Limitations: File access in this version is limited to the default filename extensions that are created by the program (ie "xls" or "doc"). If Windows is run in conjunction with any of the popular screensavers, disable the screensaver before running THE QUE. If THE QUE is being run on a machine that has low memory (1 megabyte), close or disable all possible applications and remove wallpaper or complex patterns from the desktop to improve efficiency. (THE QUE will open and close all necessary applications as it operates.) The biggest limitation at this time is that the paper orientation selected under printer setup must match the formatted orientation of the document. (This limitation does not apply to spreadsheets using printers that allow the paper orientation to be set in the Page Setup dialog box in EXCEL 3.0. One such printer is the HP Laserjet III printer.) The unregistered version of this program is limited to a maximum of three files in the que at a time. Registration: The author request that shareware user limit the trial of this program to 30 days To register this program send $25.00 to: Arthur S Chadbourne 133 Parker Street Lowell MA 01851 Registered user of this program will receive a floppy diskette containing a version of THE QUE with the ability to list twenty-five files for printing and without the "nagware" reminders present in the shareware version of the program. Acknowlegements: I would like to thank several people for their support and advice. These people have been vital to the successful completion of this program and its documentation. The first person that I have to thank is my wife Gini for the original idea for the program. Next I want to thank Andy Tarbell for all of his suggestions for improvements and enhancements to the program (I'll probably be old and bald before I get them added). I want to thank Ken Tarbell who kept asking me for the program before it was done. Finally I want to THANK Jonnathan Zuck For his advise and his WFIND function.

WinInit ------- by Tom Roberts WinInit will initialize the Windows 3.0 desktop from a list of applications and window sizes read from WIN.INI. Application windows will be moved to the specified position and size on the screen, and shown or iconized, as specified. Copyright (C) 1991, by Tom Roberts. All rights reserved. This program may be freely distributed by electronic or other means, as long as this copyright notice is preserved. Version 1.0, August 6, 1991 WinInit is a simple Windows application to set up the initial desktop based upon a list of applications and window sizes read from WIN.INI. WinInit is expected to be executed only during Windows initialization, though it can be executed at any time. In keeping with its simplicity, WinInit must be manually installed, including manual editing of WIN.INI. INSTALLATION ------------ To install WinInit, first copy the WININIT.EXE file to a convenient directory within Windows' PATH; the directory \WINDOWS may be used. In these instructions, \WINDOWS is assumed. Next, WIN.INI must be edited. This may be done using any text editor, including Windows Clipboard or System Editor. WIN.INI is normally located in the \WINDOWS directory (the System Editor will always find it for you). WIN.INI is divided into sections separated by lines of the form: [section-name] (starts in Column 1) Find the [windows] section; it is usually first. Look for two lines: load= (possibly followed by a list of programs) run= (possibly followed by a list of programs) Delete the list of programs on each of these lines, and add WININIT.EXE to one of them (use D:\path\WININIT.EXE, if necessary): load=WININIT.EXE (Program Manager will appear normally) OR run=WININIT.EXE (Program Manager will appear as an icon) NOTE: WININIT.EXE should appear ONLY ONCE in the "load=" and "run=" lines; the other line should not contain any programs. The choice of which line to use will determine how the Program Manager window is displayed during Windows startup, as described above. Basically, WinInit gives you better control over the automatic startup of Windows applications; it replaces the functionality of these two lines in WIN.INI. Now move to the END of WIN.INI. Add the following lines: [WinInit] (start in column 1) win1=1 0 0 250 300 clock.exe The first line introduces the section for WinInit. The second line tells WinInit to execute clock.exe, move it to a window with origin (0,0) and size (250,300) [units are pixels], and show it with ShowWindow state 1 (which is SW_SHOWNORMAL - i.e. a normal window). Save the file WIN.INI to disk, and restart Windows. Windows should start up, and display the clock in the upper left corner of the screen. The Program Manager window should also appear, icon or normal, as selected above. If all is well, you can re-edit WIN.INI, placing whatever programs you wish into the WinInit section of WIN.INI. The format of WinInit lines is (note that "" indicate optional items - DO NOT type the brackets): win1 = Start X Y Dx Dy [D:\path\]command.exe [arguments] Where: win1 indicates the window to WinInit: win1 - win63. Start indicates the initial ShowWindow status: 1=normal, 2=icon X is the X coordinate of the upper left corner, pixels. Y is the Y coordinate of the upper left corner, pixels. (0,0) is the upper left corner of the screen; X increases to the right, Y increases down. Dx, Dy are the size of the window, in pixels. command.exe (plus optional drive and path) is the command. NOTE: You can use normal DOS .EXE and .COM programs, as well as Windows applications and .PIF files; DOS programs will only start up as icons, even if Start is 1. Windows will follow the DOS %PATH% to find the file. The extension, however, MUST be given. arguments are the optional arguments for the command. Commands will be executed in numerical order, not necessarily the order they appear in WIN.INI. Note that unless the command is a .PIF file, Windows will set its current directory to be the directory in which the program was found; this may help avoid using absolute pathnames in the arguments. For .PIF files, Windows uses the Start-up Directory field from the .PIF file. WinInit can be executed at any time; it will read WIN.INI and launch the programs listed, and then exit. As this is rarely (if ever) used, WinInit has no icon of its own.
