This file, KBDBASE.ZIP contains the BETA KEYBOARD Driver from PCS that will replace the driver included with the Warp 4 Fixpak 13. This driver is BETA and may not work perfectly. Please ensure that you safely BACKUP the original driver prior to attemtpting installation.
NOTE TO JAPANESE KEYBOARD USERS: This Beta has NOT been tested on the Japanese keyboard driver for the Ctrl-Alt-Del Commander and we do need someone using the Japanese version to test this!
We request that you send problem reports or feedback on any issues raised with this driver to TechSupport@pcs-soft.com with the subject of "BETA KBDBASE.SYS"
There are several issues that this driver seems to correct, including the TRAP error. It also has support for the USB Keyboard.
To install this driver you will need a program such as UNZIP or PKUNZIP to de-compress the file you will download.
There are several items you will need to accomplish prior to unzipping the new file. Please read and follow these instructions completly. Also, we assume that you have installed OS2 and the Ctrl-Alt-Del Commander onto the C: drive in the default directories. Please use your specific drive letters if they are different. Also, if you modified your CONFIG.SYS to disable the Ctrl-Alt-Del Commander, please ensure you reverse those changes before restarting your system! Command examples are shown below the step where necessary.
Download theKBDBASE.SYS and save in the \CADCMDR directory (click on the link!)
Open an OS2 window and change to the CADCMDR directory - usually C:\CADCMDR
Rename the Ctrl-Alt-Del Commander KBDBASE.SYS to KBDBASE.252
REN KBDBASE.SYS KBDBASE.252 <Enter>
NOTE: This step only required if you are experiencing a problem with the Ctrl-Alt-Del Commander Status Line!Rename the Ctrl-AltDel Commander CCSLKBD.DLL to CCSLKBD.252 to disable the mouse "hot-keys" This is a temporary measure that mostly means that the mouse in a corner pop-up windows will not appear automatically. This generates an error upon start-up of the Status line, but this can safely be ignored.
REN CCSLKBD.DLL CCSLKBD.252<Enter>
Un-zip the file "KBDBASE.ZIP" into the CADCMDR directory.
Run the FPFIX command file to repair and backup the original IBM KBDBASE.SYS in the C:\OS2\BOOT directory. This will check dates and will backup the original version to KBDBASE.001 ( or .002 .003 .004 as newer versions are installed!).
If you are using the DEMO version of the Ctrl-Alt-Del Commander, you do not have all the maintenance tools included in the RETAIL version. You will need to manually copy for KBDBASE.SYS to the OS2\BOOT directory.
REN KBDBASE.SYS KBDBASE.000<Enter>
Note that if there is already a KBDBASE.000 you will need to rename to KBDBASE.001
Exit the OS2 window, shut down any other running applications are restart your system. You did remember to fix any previous changes to the CONFIG.SYS, didnīt you?
