This variable defines the user interface program (the WPS).
- Can be any shell with a full path.Relative paths are not allowed.
This variable change the user interface program to load at boot, and replace it with Atshell program.
where x:\path is wherever ATSHELL.EXE is placed.
- This causes the desktop shell to be launched immediately when ATSHELL first starts up, without displaying the ATSHELL dialog. (The ATSHELL dialog will appear, however, when/if you close the desktop shell program.)
- This enables a simple 'secure' mode. When ATSHELL is started with this parameter, the command prompt and configuration options are disabled and inaccessible. USE THIS OPTION WITH CAUTION -- if you don't have an alternative method of booting (such as boot diskettes or a maintenance partition), you won't have any way of changing the configuration (or even removing ATSHELL from CONFIG.SYS), unless the desktop (or startup) program itself gives you access to a command prompt. Alternatively, you can use this in conjunction with the multi-user local logon feature of Security/2, by setting 'atshell /s' as the local shell for non-privileged users, and keeping the WPS (or something else) for the system administrator.
