installing DosFileDirectory.je.2.zip step by step

Aaron Reichow said in the Squeak Mailing Lists:

The only thing you must know about if you are going to use a stock image
is that WinCE's file system works a little bit different than in desktop
Windows versions, but it identifies itself to Squeak as Win32, which
causes some confusion when Squeak tries to use the native file system for
loading changesets or using the .changes file or saving an image. Which
is a bad thing. To remedy this, you need to load a fix on another machine,
most likely a desktop. You can get this changeset here:


I've found this fix works in every image I've tried it in- version 2.6 to

then Rachel replied
. I visited the site and downloaded the fix, but I can't
seem to figure out what to do with the fix from this point. It doesn't
self install to my pc, and I can't figure out if there is a directory
that I'm supposed to copy the file to or ?? I'm at a bit of a loss as to
where to go next...

and Dean Swan explained:
Here's a step-by-step to apply the fix:

1. Start the version of Squeak that you want to add this patch to.
I'm assuming that you're using 3.2 for the rest of this.

2. Right click on an empty area in the Squeak window.
3. Click on 'open...' in the menu that will pop-up.
4. Click on 'file list'
5. The window that opens after selecting 'file list' is similar in function to the Windows Explorer window on a PC.

Use the upper left part of the window to go to directory where you saved the Zip file you downloaded.

6. Left Click on the 'DosFileDirectory.je.2.zip' file, then right click on the 'DosFileDirectory.je.2.zip' file.

7. Select 'open archive viewer' from the pop-up menu.

8. A window that works a lot like 'WinZip' will open.

9. Click on the 'Extract All' button.

10. A window will pop-up asking you to select a directory to extract to. Select a directory.

11. Go back to the 'file list' window. Go to the directory where you extracted the 'DosFileDirectory.je.2.cs' file to.

12. In the upper right pain of the file list, left click on the 'DosFileDirectory.je.2.cs'.

13. Click the 'File-In' button.

14. Close the archive viewer and the file list windows.

15. Pop up the world menu (as in step 2) (i.e. save, save as..., save as new version, or save and quit - all near the bottom of the menu).

Then when you start Squeak again using the image file you just saved, it should include the DosFileDirectory fix.
