MIRROR.COM May Cause Works to Stop Responding (Hang)

PSS ID Number: Q103918 Article last modified on 10-21-1998

2.x 3.00


====================================================================== 2.x 3.00 MS-DOS kbother

The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft Works for MS-DOS, versions 2.x and 3.0


MIRROR.COM, a terminate-and-stay-resident (TSR) utility included with MS-DOS 5.0, may conflict with Works for MS-DOS, possibly causing Works to stop responding (hang). It is recommended that you do not use MIRROR.COM with Works for MS-DOS version 2.0 or 3.0.


MIRROR.COM is designed to aid in recovering from accidental formats by maintaining an image of the system area of the disk. Because TSR programs such as MIRROR.COM by definition remain resident in RAM, they can cause memory conflicts. To deactivate MIRROR.COM, remove or remark the MIRROR.COM line from your AUTOEXEC.BAT file and restart your computer.

Microsoft does not officially support the use of any TSR programs with Works. Microsoft has not tested this configuration and therefore cannot guarantee its results.
