According to the eStylerLite licence the following is not legal

eStylerLite is the Styler (SmartWin) version for eComStation. If you want to use eStylerLite for eComStation for your OS/2 follow these steps. I have tested this with ACP2. It will give you the 3d look buttons, title bar options and the extended shutdown option.

  1. Unzip s:\cid\server\ecspkg\estyler.zip where s is eCS 1.1 CD1 to a temporary directory.
  2. Copy the three DLL in ecs\dll\ to \OS2\DLL
  3. Add eStyler DLL to SYS_DLLS:LoadPerProcess, you can use the following REXX script
/* */
estldll = "ESTLRL10"
SAY "Adding eStyler DLL to SYS_DLLS:LoadPerProcess ..."
val = SysIni("USER", "SYS_DLLS", "LoadPerProcess")
IF val \= "ERROR:" THEN DO
  IF 0 = POS( estldll, val ) THEN DO
      val = STRIP( STRIP( val, "T", X2C("00"))) || " " || estldll || " " || "00"x
      val = SysIni("USER", "SYS_DLLS", "LoadPerProcess", val );
    END
END
  1. Create an empty file in the root directory of your boot drive \WiseMachine.FIT
  2. Reboot
  3. Start estyler.exe

Optionally you also can copy \OS2\DLL\PMMRGRES.DLL from eCS 1.1 to OS/2. This will give you the round titlebar buttons.
