MemMaker Err Msg: Bad Input Character (@) (100795)

The information in this article applies to:
    Microsoft MS-DOS operating system 6.0

This article was previously published under Q100795


If you have a command in your CONFIG.SYS file that contains the at sign (@), you receive the following error message when you run MemMaker:

Bad input character (@)
Since the at sign is a valid parameter for the Corel SCSI and STAC Electronics Stacker device drivers, you may receive the above error message if you run MemMaker and have either of these drivers loaded.


MemMaker version 6.0 does not accept the at sign as a valid command parameter.


To work around this problem, either use "REM" to remark out the command line containing the at sign or remove the at sign parameter from the command line before you run MemMaker.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in Microsoft MS-DOS MemMaker version 6.0. This problem was corrected in MS-DOS version 6.2.
