If you try to run an MS-DOS-based application in an MS-DOS virtual machine (VM), the program may not start, or you may receive the following error message:
This error can be caused by running an application that calls the DosMakeMailslot function after you have started the real-mode redirector.
Rather than using the real-mode redirector, use the protected-mode redirector (virtual redirector).
The error message is misleading since you have started the workstation services.
When running the real-mode redirector, mailslots are not supported in virtual machines.
