OS/2 Extended Edition Install Previous Release of Communications Manager

       The OS/2* Extended Edition installation allows the end
user to remove a previous version of Communication Manager.

      The end user is informed that a previous release of the
Extended Edition is being removed for upgrade to a newer release of
Extended Edition.

      After a selection is chosen from the OS/2 Extended Edition Main
menu, a check is made to determine if a previous version of Extended
Edition exists in their environment.  If a previous release is
detected, a prompt message is displayed asking the end user to select
to remove the previous version or do not remove the previous version.
The end user is forced to select one of the choices.

      Without this prompt message the end user could be damaging a
verified running system.
