SMCOPEN.EXE is the EZ CardBus-II adapterenabling program for the MS-DOS system. 
Before you can use any of the DOS mode drivers, such as the Novell DOS ODI
driver, the Novell Client 32 driver, the NDIS2 driver, the packet driver, or
the diagnostic program, you have to execute SMCOPEN.EXE to enable the EZ
CardBus-II adapter first.

Some notebooks come with an MS-DOS software suite that is called the Card and 
Socket services.  These services are provided to facilitate the use of CardBus
PC Cards.  However, since CardBus is a relatively new technology, most of the
Card and Socket services software on the market today is not mature enough to
fully support CardBus cards.  For this reason, in this release, SMCOPEN.EXE
does not use the Card and Socket Services, and SMCOPEN.EXE detects and programs
the CardBus bridge controller in the notebook directly.  If you have loaded
Card and Socket services in CONFIG.SYS in your notebook, please remove them
before using SMCOPEN.EXE.

SMCOPEN can be executed from the MS-DOS command line, or it can be loaded in 
CONFIG.SYS as a MS-DOS device driver.  To execute SMCOPEN from the command 
line, just type:

   SMCOPEN <Enter>

To load SMCOPEN as a device driver, enter the following line in CONFIG.SYS:


This statement assumes you have a copy of SMCOPEN.EXE in C:\SMCOPEN.

SMCOPEN finds all the EZ CardBus-II PC Cards in the system and assigns I/O, IRQ,
and memory resources to these cards.  Power is then applied to the cards
such that the cards are enabled and ready to be accessed by device drivers.

The following is a typical message displayed by SMCOPEN.EXE after it has
configured and enabled an EZ CardBus-II PC Card:

   Socket 0:  Mem D0000, IRQ C (PCI-Routed: INT A) 
	      -- SMC8034/8036 Card, I/O Port FF00

   Socket 1:  Mem D1000, IRQ B (PCI-Routed: INT B) 

This message reports that an EZ CardBus-II card is found in socket 0.  A range of
I/O ports starting from FF00 (hexadecimal), and a range of memory starting from
D0000 (hexadecimal), are assigned to this card.  The IRQ value assigned is 
IRQ C.  The system's IRQ routing style is PCI-Routed, and the PCI INT value 
is INT A.

If the IRQ routing style designed into the system is ISA-Routed, SMCOPEN 
displays a message similar to this:

   Socket 0:  Mem D0000, IRQ 9 (ISA-Routed) 
	      -- SMC8034/8036 Card, I/O Port FF00

   Socket 1:  Mem D1000, IRQ 9 (ISA-Routed) 

After SMCOPEN.EXE is loaded, it stays in the computer's memory.
If an EZ CardBus-II is inserted in a CardBus socket, SMCOPEN enables the card.
If an EZ CardBus-II is removed from a CardBus socket, SMCOPEN returns the
resources assigned to the card back to the system.

To remove SMCOPEN from computer's memory, enter:

How To Update Drivers Manually

After your driver has been downloaded, follow these simple steps to install it.

  • Expand the archive file (if the download file is in zip or rar format).

  • If the expanded file has an .exe extension, double click it and follow the installation instructions.

  • Otherwise, open Device Manager by right-clicking the Start menu and selecting Device Manager.

  • Find the device and model you want to update in the device list.

  • Double-click on it to open the Properties dialog box.

  • From the Properties dialog box, select the Driver tab.

  • Click the Update Driver button, then follow the instructions.

Very important: You must reboot your system to ensure that any driver updates have taken effect.
