SHARE.EXE Functionality Built into Windows NT


The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft Win32 Software Development Kit (SDK) for Windows NT, versions 3.1, 3.5


The functionality of the MS-DOS SHARE.EXE utility is built into the Windows NT kernel. Any application or application programming interface (API) that relies on the SHARE.EXE functionality is automatically supported. This functionality cannot be disabled.


If you run the MS-DOS version of SHARE.EXE, you will receive a message stating that SHARE is already installed. The Windows NT MS-DOS emulation hooks Interrupt 2Fh function 10H and always returns a status indicating that SHARE is installed.

If you run an MS-DOS-based application and it complains that SHARE.EXE is not installed, the application may be searching the AUTOEXEC.BAT file for a "share" string rather than using the proper Interrupt 2Fh interface.
