Custom.txt - WinPhlash 1.3 build 46

The "OEM Only" directory contains executable files that are required for WinPhlash.
The following ten files are included in this directory:

     - Custom.txt         	This text file
     - Phlash.ini         	Configuration Settings file
     - Phlash9x.vxd       	Virtual Device Driver for Windows 98 and ME
     - PhlashLc.dll		English Dynamic linked library for WinPhlash resources
     - language/*/PhlashLc.dll  Languages other than english Dynamic linked library for WinPhlash resources
     - PhlashNT.sys       	Virtual Device Driver for Windows NT, 2000, and XP
     - WinPhlash.exe      	WinPhlash executable file
     - WinPhlash.hlp		English Specific Standard WinPhlash Help
     - Help/ADV/*/WinPhlash.hlp Language Specific Standard WinPhlash Help
     - Help/STD/*/WinPhlash.hlp Language Specific Advanced WinPhlash Help
     - Wp.ico		  	Bitmap file for WinPhlash Logo
     - PhComp.exe		Program to compress the BIOS image.

It is recommended that the OEM provide a PHLASH.INI file containing updated options as well as a BIOS image file for flashing.

Three additional files are included in the "OEM Only" directory.
These system files may also need to be loaded into the system directory:

     - MSVCP60.DLL
     - MFC42.DLL


A - The method of providing WinPhlash and any related files (BIOS image and flash settings) to their customers is the decision and responsibility of the OEM. A BIOS image file compressed with PhComp can be used with WinPhlash exactly the same way as a normal BIOS is. The change is transparent to the end-user.

B - It is important to also make sure that the necessary system files (DLL's) be loaded into the appropriate directory. The name and path of this directory depends on both what operating system has been installed and where the user may have selected to install the operating system. Care should be taken not to use a hard coded directory path name for this installation.

C - It is also important to make sure that newer versions of these files (DLL's) that have already been installed on the target system, are not lost by copying an older version over them. Version numbers and dates should be chacked and the user consulted before possibly losing newer versions. If they are to be copied over, the original versions should be saved in a known location, with the original name. The user should be advised of this information so that they can restore the originals if necessary.

D - Various third-party utilities such as InstallShield, are available which greatly ease these tasks. It is the responsibility of the OEM to consider use of such a utility to develop a sophisticated installation package.

E - A simpler alternative is to create a batch file to copy the appropriate files to known locations. Again, care must be taken to observe all of the above notes.
