DBLSPACE ERR Msg: Invalid DBLSPACE.INI Setting: SWITCHES=/N

Article ID: 104034

Article Last Modified on 10/10/2003



APPLIES TO

  • Microsoft MS-DOS 6.0 Standard Edition
  • Microsoft MS-DOS 6.2 Standard Edition



This article was previously published under Q104034

SYMPTOMS

If you modify the DBLSPACE.INI file with the DBLSPACE /SWITCHES command in MS-DOS 6.2 and then uninstall 6.2 and use MS-DOS 6.0, you receive one of the following error messages when you boot your computer:

Invalid DBLSPACE.INI setting: SWITCHES=/N
Invalid DBLSPACE.INI setting: SWITCHES=/F
Invalid DBLSPACE.INI setting: SWITCHES=/FN

CAUSE

These switches are not valid for the MS-DOS 6.0 DBLSPACE.INI file.

RESOLUTION

To work around this problem, edit the DBLSPACE.INI file and then add the switches to the CONFIG.SYS file. For example:

  1. Use the ATTRIB program to clear the DBLSPACE.INI file attributes. For example:

          attrib -r -h -s h:\dblspace.ini
                            

    To determine which drive is your host drive, type dblspace /list at the MS-DOS command prompt and then press ENTER.

  2. Using MS-DOS Editor, edit the DBLSPACE.INI file and remove the SWITCHES entries.
  3. Save the DBLSPACE.INI file.
  4. Edit the CONFIG.SYS file on drive C and add the SWITCHES entries.
  5. Save the CONFIG.SYS file and exit MS-DOS Editor.
