MS-DOS 6.2 Upgrade Setup replaces the MEMMAKER.INF file in the directory that contains your MS-DOS files (typically C:\DOS).

If you have customized your MEMMAKER.INF file, your changes are lost when you run MS-DOS 6.2 Upgrade Setup.


To work around this problem, do one of the following:

  • Copy your old MEMMAKER.INF file from the OLD_DOS.1 directory. For example, type copy c:\old_dos.1\memmaker.inf c:\dos at the MS-DOS command prompt and then press ENTER. -or-

  • Modify the new MEMMAKER.INF file.

NOTE: The new MEMMAKER.INF file contains entries that were not included in MS-DOS 6. For more information, read the comments in the new MEMMAKER.INF file. To do this, type edit c:\dos\memmaker.inf at the MS-DOS command prompt and then press ENTER.
