	CLVBETSR is installed by executing CLVBETSR.EXE

	which displays the date and version.

	has been re-enabled.

Known Problems.

	1). Loading the TSR high has resulted in page fault errors with
	    some applications.
            Current solution is to load the TSR in conventional memory. 
            Please refer to your memory managers documentation for further
	2). You may encounter screen flicker in the following modes.
            1024x768 4bpp 70Hz and 72Hz refresh rates in Banked modes.
            1024x768 8bpp 87iHz and 85Hz refresh rates in Linear modes.
            800x600 15bpp and 16bpp 72Hz refresh rates in Linear modes.
            640x480 15bpp and 16bpp 60Hz refresh rates in Banked and Linear modes.  
            Current solution is to use CLMODE utility to set your refresh rate
            either higher or lower to avoid problems.

NOTE: These problems are system dependent and could not be reproduced across
      all platforms.
