Maintenance Pack 2

for Smalltalk MT 4.2

Welcome to Maintenance Pack #2 for Smalltalk MT 4.2. The pack upgrades Smalltalk MT version 4.2 to 4.2b. Maintenance packs are cumulative so there is no need to install pack #1.

This document is organized into the following topics:



Installing Maintenance Pack #2 involves two steps, step 1 copies the files and step 2 installs the source code into the image.

  1. Exit Smalltalk
  2. Run the installer and select the Smalltalk MT 4.2 installation directory as target folder (it is the default target folder).

Note: Select a separate directory if you wish to keep your current installation intact. You can then copy files as needed.

Installing the Smalltalk project

  1. Launch Smalltalk MT

  2. Navigate to the folder Source\Maintenance Packs

  3. File-in the maintenance pack project.

The About box in Smalltalk MT should now display version 4.20b. To check the runtime DLL version, go to the Image Properties, Linkage page, and select STRTDLL40.dll. The box at the bottom of the page should display:

Smalltalk MT Runtime DLL, Version

Updating GDI+

If GDI+ is not installed in your image, you will automatically use the new library the next time you load the GDI+ project. Otherwise, the best procedure is to uninstall GDI+, unlink STGDIPLUS.dll, then reinstall.

Removing Maintenance Pack #2
Because the maintenance pack overwrites components that are used by the Smalltalk MT development environment, you must repair the original installation when you uninstall the maintenance pack. To uninstall, start Setup and choose Remove.

Note: If you installed to a separate directory you can remove the maintenance pack safely.
