Description

UniMaint provides a unified suite of utilities designed to allow you to maintain your OS/2 Workplace Shell, including automated repair of INI files, facilities for displaying and editing EAs, Desktop backup and restore, and portable Desktop backups which allow the user to port the Desktop to another machine or version of OS/2.

UniMaint also allows you to archive and reinstall applications! It allows you to move applications from one drive to another without the need to reinstall the application from the original product disks or CD-ROM. UniMaint also uninstalls applications. Simply drag a program object to the Uninstall icon, and UniMaint will delete program files and directories, remove associated WPS Objects, delete DLLs, erase CONFIG.SYS entries, eliminate program help files, and purge OS2.INI file entries. UniMaint will uninstall OS/2, DOS and WINOS2 applications - even those that were installed before UniMaint!
