As most of you know there is a GW View Designer for practically every GW version, for GW800, GW801, GW802, etc.
I blogged about this before, checked it, and noticed I need to make a few changes to the prev blog, so let's make it right here. A new blog.
First, HOW it works. You need 3 things. 1 Files from GW800 (client), 2 The GW View Designer for GW800, 3 Some files from the version you run now (client). GW801, 02, 03 and IMO it will work with Ascot too.
Next make a subdir called viewers in that directory. Copy from your C:\Program Files\Novell\GroupWise directory (where the latest client is installed) the following files to that subdir viewers : de*.dll, scc*.dll and vs*.dll. These are plus minus 200 files.
Now create the following BAT or CMD file in the directory with VDESIGN.EXE:
@echo off set xpath=%path% set path=%path%;./viewers vdesign.exe set path=%xpath%
Running this batch file will add the subdir viewers to the path and start VDESIGN.EXE. All the files in the directory are GW800 based, and cause Windows .EXE files look in the current directory first the VDESIGN.EXE will have all the files it needs in its directory. Whether you have a GW802HP2 installed, the GW800 files will be used.
