• [VOICENWS] SW: UPDATE: eCS 2.2 DVD released at 16:00 hours Amsterdam

    From VOICE News Service@1:3634/1000 to All on Monday, March 25, 2013 17:57:49

    A few dozen people downloaded the eCS 2.2 beta English DVD ISO from the
    Mensys server. We had to withdraw the ISO at 22:30 Amsterdam time.
    Booting from DVD the ISO works without any error. However on boot from
    hard disc the wrong 2 USB drivers are installed.
    The files USBOHCD.SYS and USBEHCD.SYS where not updated 1 pack file.
    This could result in problems with USB devices and slow boots.
    At 23:15 we released a new ISO with the proper version of the drivers
    in place.
    If your ISO is effected by this please check the file:

    \ECS\ecs_inst.flg on the DVD it mentions:

    eComStation 2.2_beta EN_US Mon Mar 25 02:19:05 pm 2013

    In the new released eCS 2.2 beta the file has this information it:

    eComStation 2.2_beta EN_US Mon Mar 25 10:21:02 pm 2013

    If you have the effected ISO you can also boot from the DVD and open a
    command prompt and from the ramdrive (normaly drive Z:) copy usb*.sys
    to bootdrive:\os2\boot. That way your boot on hard disc will be up to
    date with the proper drivers.

    Boot from the DVD is not affected!

    Sorry for the inconvience

    Best regards,
