Screen Corruption During Partial Installation of Grammatik 5.0

PSS ID Number: Q102932 Article last modified on 11-03-1994

====================================================================== 6.00 MS-DOS kbother

The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft Word for MS-DOS, version 6.0


When you use the INSTALL EXTRACT command to perform a partial setup of Grammatik 5.0, the Install program may display the file decompression prompt in the middle of the default Setup screen. The two superimposed displays cause the screen to appear corrupted, or jumbled.

This problem occurs when the Install program displays the first filename from the second Grammatik disk. It does not happen at any other time during the installation process.


This is a display problem only; the screen corruption does not affect the installation process.

We are researching this problem and will post new information here in the Microsoft Knowledge Base as it becomes available.


Grammatik 5.0 is the grammar checker supplied with Word for MS-DOS.

When you perform a partial installation of Grammatik, the INSTALL EXTRACT command displays each filename and asks whether you want to decompress that file. For more information on performing a partial installation, see pages 136-137 of “Microsoft Word for MS-DOS Grammatik User’s Guide.”
