CMFIX Utility

      This disclosure describes a method for restoring the 'CMLIB'
references back into the CONFIG.SYS and to aid administrators from
having to reinstall a Communications product.

      During the Installation of a combined Database/Communication
product on a system that already has a Communications product, all
references to 'CMLIB' are removed from the CONFIG.SYS file.  These
changes will render the Communications product inoperable after the
machine is re-booted.  If you install the combined
Database/Communication product before the new Communications product,
then you will not have a problem.

      The CMFIX.EXE utility will restore the CONFIG.SYS so that new
Communications Product will work.  This utility compares the current
CONFIG.SYS with the backed-up copy of the CONFIG.SYS that was made
during combined Database/Communication product installation.  It then
replaces all the CMLIB statements that were removed from CONFIG.SYS.
The backed up CONFIG.SYS file, CONFIG.ES, is found in the
X:\OS2\INSTALL directory, where X is the current boot drive.  You
must run CMFIX.EXE after the combined Database/Communication product
installation and BEFORE the system is re-booted.

      Certain files which are installed during the combined
Database/Communication product installation have the same file names
as some the new Communications product files.  These files must be
deleted.  If the files are currently in use then they will be sent to
