Win32s Update Information

Windows NT users and Win95 beta-testers
Windows NT and Win95 are 32-bit operating systems with Win32s and OLE  
support built into the operating system. Users of Windows NT and Win95  
should NOT install Win32s on their systems.

Windows 3.1 and Windows for Workgroups Users
You have a 16-bit operating system and you'll need to install  
Microsoft's Win32s software. This software will allow you to run 32-bit  
applications in Windows 3.1 or WfW 3.11. Since Mosaic is also an OLE  
compatible application, Mosaic users must use Win32s with the OLE. The  
latest version of Win32s is available at NCSA's ftp site,  
ftp.ncsa.uiuc.edu, in the /Mosaic/Windows directory. The file  
w32sOLE.exe is a self-extracting executable. After you download the  
file, put it in a temporary directory (c:\install), type w32sOLE, and  
all associated files will decompress.

The latest version of Win32s version 1.25.  It was released by Micorsoft  
to address the National Language Support problem and the compobj.dll  
problem some Windows users were experiencing with version 1.20. We  
recommend you upgrade to this latest version if you prefer to use a  
language other than English(American) in your Windows environment, OR if  
you experiencing problems with the compobj.dll library while using  
Microsoft Office, Excel or Word. In general, if you are NOT experiencing 
problems with Win32s v1.20, upgrading to Win32s v1.25 is not required.

Win32s must be installed BEFORE you install attempt to install Mosaic.
