No protected mode spec for Lotus




To: vax LARRY::COCONNER Subject: Re: VCPI & MSFT


As most of you know, I have been trading phone calls with the following three M'softies:

Russ Werner (in charge of Windows and DOS business unit) Phil Barrett (Development manager, Windows) Tom Lennon (some marketing role under Russ)

I had gotten earlier this year the spec for "protected mode" back doors in Windows, under our CDA with Microsoft, along with working prototype code.

I also have a promise to receive an update from them "in Aprol" (orf Beta Windows 3 software, and the interface specs for the "back door").

This update has not come .. I spoke to Phil yesterday (a very chilly phone call), and he said we were "probably on te Windows 3 SDK list, and that is in Mfg."
