DESCRIPTION

     ForceIcon is an utility mainly for users of CDRom drives
     or users of networking software capable of sharing devices
     and icons. Since one can not snapshot the position of a
     volume`s icon (on read only media), nor replace it by a
     user-defined one, I wrote this utility. ForceIcon allows
     you to set the position of a disk`s icon and/or replace
     it by a different image/icon which doesn`t have to be a
     disk.info file. All types of ".info" files may be selected.
     Special features include inheritance of device specific
     settings, specifying the root drawer`s size/position
     and display flags/modes.

NEW FEATURES

     - Added Server/Prefs concept. The main program comes
       with no GUI. It is controlled through an external
       Prefs editor.

     - Prefs Editor rewritten to use MUI (version 7)

     - Inheritance added. Volume entries may inherit settings
       from the corresponding device entry now.

     - Better code for scanning the DOS-List entries

     - Online Help

     - Diskchanges will be sent to all known volumes/devices
       on startup, now. This way you might be able to start
       ForceIcon from within SYS:WBStartUp

     - Added memory pool support

     - Edit entry will cause a diskchange to the volume/device
       so that you may see the changes you`ve made

     - More and better cloning of window flags

     - Added pattern support

     - Some bugfixes
