SETUP /E Message: Cannot Identify Your Version of DOS

PSS ID Number: 107813

Article Last Modified on 11/21/1999

The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft MS-DOS operating system 6.2
  • Microsoft MS-DOS operating system 6.22

This article was previously published under Q107813


If you install MS-DOS 6.2 or 6.22 Step-Up and then use your MS-DOS 6.0 Upgrade disks to run SETUP /E (to install the optional utilities), you receive the following error message:

Cannot identify your version of DOS


Because you have upgraded to MS-DOS 6.2 or 6.22, you cannot run Setup from an earlier version of MS-DOS.


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

  • Follow the procedure in the "Updating Microsoft Backup, Undelete and Anti-Virus" in the README.NOW file (located on your Step-Up disk or in the directory that contains your downloaded Step-Up files).

NOTE: The procedure is not duplicated here because it is different for the retail version and the downloadable (BBS) version of Step-Up. -or-

  • Uninstall MS-DOS 6.2 or 6.22, run MS-DOS 6.0 Setup with the /E parameter, and then reinstall MS-DOS 6.2 or 6.22 Step-Up.
