Question Installing Win2Front?

[Off Topic| History]
Hi! Since childhood I have been playing along with the A1200,
but then I had some long long years without one and like 5 years ago,
I switched one for a Blues Bass that I didn't want.
I have updated it with a 4GB CF-card,
it uses Workbench 3.0 on it's Kickstart 3.0 rev. 39.106.
Oldie, but goldie.

[Off Topic| Plans]
I am going to buy the 3.1.4 Workbench with it's 3.1.4 ROM (Kickstart 3.1.4 rev 46.143) from 2018,
because, why not, and a 32GB CF this month, but later on even an accelerator card,
also found a 68030 40MHz + 128MB in my favourite [Amigastore]. ^^


[ON Topic| Problems]
Now, I have been using WinUAE, and found this really really good guide on how to install Workbench 3.9.2 which I like on the computer,
but don't want to be on actual hardware ever. haha In part two of the guide, he installs a program called "WindowToFront",
he links it to [Aminet], but the program was not at all the same.... In it's installation process.
It's name is "Win2Front.lha" I extract those via WinRAR in Windows,
then link the folder as a hard-disk in the emulator.

[Off Topic| Usage Rant]

I usually only played games on the computer that I had as a child,
and the other one have more or less been collecting dust until I changed the CF installed WB3.0,
and from then up until two days ago when I started watching all the fun stuff that I kind of just dropped because of money problems back then.
I am not any good at the whole Workbench usage at all, but I am learning, and woosh.
I would like to get some help with how to install it in WB 3.9.2 so that I can easily do it on the actual Amiga, later on.

Hello and welcome!

Utilities on the Amiga don't usually require much installing, simply run the program by double clicking on the icon. If you want it to run automatically, put it in the WBStartup directory as suggested in the readme.

It is better to extract .lha archives on the Amiga side rather than using WinRAR; certain Amiga specific file attributes don't exist in Windows and you may end up with odd behavior once the files have been moved over.

Thank you !! ^^

Well that did NOT work, I instead when trying to delete it, also deleted all the utilities???! Amiga in a Nutcrack, it's not the first time that WB deletes essential files, so I have a backup of the harddisk, just in case of emergency when I have done something stupid.
