Abstract

Considers the problems that can be encountered when using DOS 5.0 with software such as PASSPORT. Discusses ways of circumventing incompatibility problems using DOS 5.0′s Setver command, as a step‐by‐step process: edit Config.sys, instruct Setver, and rebooting the computer. Concludes that the Setver command exists as a “lie” to make DOS 5.0 files acceptable, and as such is necessary when running programs incompatible with it.
