The list of fixes which make up the Fix Pack 8 for VisualAge C++ 3.0 for OS/2 US English.
The Fix Pack is broken down into a several components to help simplify its distribution. The fixes are cumulative within each component, thus you need only apply the latest one for each component.
The Fix Pack uses the following naming convention:
-- The first two characters are always CT.
- The next character indicates the component:
C - Compiler (i.e. C/C++ compilers, ILINK, ILIB)
D - Documentation
O - Open Class Libraries
S - Open Class source code (a separate product)
U - Utilities (i.e. debugger, browser, performance analyzer)
V - Visual Tools (i.e. Visual Builder, Data Access Builder)
W - WorkFrame
-- The next two characters are the version number of the product.
-- The last character is the level of the Fix Pack.
For example, CTC301 is the first compiler Fix Pack for VisualAge C++ Version 3, CTC302 is the second compiler Fix Pack. CTV301 is the first visual tools Fix Pack, etc.
Each ZIP file contains a read.me file which contains information specific to that particular component. It is strongly recommended that you read those files before installation. Also, there is an LST file within each ZIP file. LST files contain the list of fixes that went into the corresponding component.
The order of applying Fix Pack components:
2. CTC308 *
7. CTD308 *
10. If you have the OpenClass source code, apply CTS308 at any time.
POST-FP8-1 and POST-FP8-2
After applying Fix Pack 8 you should install post-FixPak 8 OpenClass fixes POST-FP8-1 and POST-FP8-2. You must apply CTO308 prior to installing these two fixes. The installation process consists of copying files over from ZIP to their respective directories as soon as you backup the original files (CTO308) from those directories. No other changes are required. Both files contain readme.txt with the list of fixes.
If you wish to have the support for Euro currency symbol you should install EUROFIX. The prerequisite for this fix is CTC308. Download the fix, unzip, and refer to readme.txt for installation instructions.
