When you run VSAFE with Microsoft Windows, you receive repeated messages
about .EXE files being changed if you install or upgrade any Windows-based
This occurs because some applications create a zero (0) byte .EXE file
and then add to the file during the installation process. When this
happens, VSAFE repeatedly reports that the .EXE has changed.
To work around this problem, do the following:
• Run Vsafe Manager (MWAVTSR.EXE) and choose Options.
• Clear the Protect Executable Files check box and choose OK.
NOTE: When you run VSAFE with Microsoft Windows, you should also run
Vsafe Manager (MWAVTSR.EXE). This program enables VSAFE messages to be
displayed in Microsoft Windows. You should not start VSAFE after you
have started Windows, nor should you change any VSAFE settings.
