Stacker Conversion Error Msg When Path Is Longer Than 127

Article ID: 108360

Article Last Modified on 11/21/1999



APPLIES TO

  • Microsoft MS-DOS 6.2 Standard Edition



This article was previously published under Q108360

SYMPTOMS

If your path is longer than 127 characters, the Stacker conversion program cannot run. The error message you receive depends on the location of your Stacker files.

If your Stacker files are in the C:\STACKER directory and your path is too long, you receive the following error message:

The MS-DOS Stacker conversion program cannot continue because it could not find your copy of the DBLSPACE.EXE file. The DBLSPACE.EXE should be located in the directory that contains your MS-DOS files.

Add your MS-DOS directory to your search path, and then run CONVERT again. (For information about changing your search path, type HELP PATH at the command prompt.)

If the Stacker files are not located in a C:\STACKER directory and your path is too long, you receive the following error message:

The MS-DOS Stacker conversion program cannot continue because it cannot find the Stacker CHECK.EXE or SCHECK.EXE programs.

Add the directory that contains your Stacker files to your search path, and then run CONVERT again. Either the CHECK.EXE or the SCHECK.EXE file must be in your Stacker directory when you run CONVERT. (For information about changing your search path, type HELP PATH at the command prompt.)

RESOLUTION

To work around this problem, set the path to your Stacker and MS-DOS directories and then run the Stacker conversion. For example, type set path=c:\dos;c:\stacker at the MS-DOS command prompt and then press ENTER.
