SYMPTOMS

When you run MS-DOS MemMaker, you may receive the following error message:

Error reading CONFIG.SYS in root

CAUSE

This error occurs when a program or command in your AUTOEXEC.BAT file changes the default drive (for example, from C to D), you run MemMaker, choose Custom Setup, and then choose to "Optimize upper memory for use with Windows."

RESOLUTION

To correct this situation, edit your AUTOEXEC.BAT file and add C: (without the quotation marks) after the line for the program or command that is changing the default drive. For example, if your AUTOEXEC.BAT file has

   D:
   DOSKEY
                

add C: after the DOSKEY line:

   D:
   DOSKEY
   C:
