"Automatically Generated Configuration Files" Message
The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional
When you choose to start MS-DOS, Microsoft Windows 95, or Microsoft Windows 98 from the Windows 2000 boot menu, you may see the following message:
You are using automatically generated configuration files. Your original configuration files have been renamed Config.upg and Autoexec.upg and are located in the C:\MSDOS7 directory.
This behavior occurs if you upgrade Windows 95 or Windows 98 to Windows 2000. When you upgrade, the existing Config.sys and Autoexec.bat files are copied to the MSDOS7 folder and renamed to Config.upg and Autoexec.upg. A new Autoexec.bat file with the message listed above is then created.
This is an informational message only; it reports the location of the backed-up copies of the Config.sys and Autoexec.bat files. If you need settings from these files, you can edit the current Config.sys and Autoexec.bat files using any text editor (such as Notepad).
If you do not want to see the message, you can edit the Autoexec.bat file and remove the entry:
- Make a backup copy of the Autoexec.bat file (copy it to Autoexec.sav).
- Click Start, click Run, type notepad c:\autoexec.bat, and then click OK.
Delete the following entry:
Echo You are using automatically generated configuration files.
Echo Your original configuration files have been renamed
Echo Config.upg and Autoexec.upg and are located in the C:\MSDOS7 directory.
- Save the Autoexec.bat file.
