SETUP /E Message: Cannot Identify Your Version of DOS (107813)
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.
• 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.
