Martin, I think that was for Warp 3 which might explain odd results if you are running it on Warp 4 or its derivative.
I believe desktop wizard expanded the screen to something bigger than what you could actually see.

Hello

"WPS Left!" is also weird to reduce the size of the desktop showing the scrolls bars.

It has the source code, but I don't know if it is missing the DLL's source code.

Hello

Any idea what is this Chinese 90's OS/2 software is about? I added a google translation of the readme, but I can not make it run (Gives a GDI error). I'm not sure if it is some kind of calendar or PIM ?

There's a calculator, calendar, editor, expression thingy and hpv, which crashes with the GDI error.
Run them from a cmd prompt as all but the hpv.exe are text mode, the calculator and calendar seem to use English, though not the editor.
I'd guess that hpv.exe wants a DBCS system.
Edit: the calculator uses the number pad, need numlock on.

Hello

Any ideas what is this csv_imp exe ? some kind of csv import command line tool?
I can not run it, since it says it requires "WPPERSDB".

wppersdb.dll seems to be part of "Personal Card Manager" on ecomstation.ru: https://en.ecomstation.ru/projects/wpperson/?action=history
(back in 2013)

Hello

This time I don't know what this software is about:
- http://ps-2.kev009.com/pccbbs/os2_coding/migrat.zip
Some place say it is a " NetWare Migration Utility" and "Netware Migration Utility for Netware 3.11 and 4.0", but other place says it is "Fix for 000D's when migrating apps "

Did someone remember this one? I just want to have it documented and archived, not that I have any plans.

This appears to be an older version of the IBM supplied migration tool (\os2\install\migrate.exe).

Hello

I found this VSE/ESA Workstation Interface:
- http://ps-2.kev009.com/pccbbs/os2_coding/vse-esa.zip
I'm guessing it is a utility to send commands to a mainframe, right?
It comes with a .VRP and some .VRX files, are those the source code of it for VX-REXX ?

Regards

Hello

Just trying today (if trying is right word) this software I found: "IBM M-Control Program/2". It is some multimedia/video software for several platforms and for OS/2 MMOS2. It has a toolkit, libraries, samples, but I'm still now sure what is this software for.

I guess it is something relates to Video and LaserDisc, it says it has support for the following device:
Code: [Select]

                        Pioneer LD-V2200
                        Pioneer LD-V4200
                        Pioneer LD-V4300D (NTSC/PAL)
                        Pioneer LD-V4400
                        Pioneer LD-V6000
                        Pioneer LD-V6000A
                        Pioneer LD-V6010A
                        Pioneer LD-V8000
                        Sony LDP-1200
                        Sony LDP-1450
                        Sony LDP-1500
                        Sony LDP-1550
                        Sony LDP-2000 (Models 1-5 RS-232 Interface)
                        Sony LDP-3600D (NTSC/PAL)

I downloaded those files and transform them from diskette images to zip files.

If someone knows a more easy going definition what is this for, let me know.

Martin, I unzipped it and zipped it back up again.  Try this zip file.
