If you are using the Autoback program from Colorado Memory Systems, typing Path or Set at the MS-DOS command prompt yields the path statement "path=c:\dos" even if a path statement that lists several directories exists in your AUTOEXEC.BAT file.


If the Autoback tape backup scheduling terminate-and-stay-resident (TSR) program loads before other commands in the AUTOEXEC.BAT file, those commands are not processed correctly. For example, if the Autoback TSR program loads before the PATH command, the PATH command is not processed.


To avoid having your path rewritten as c:\dos, load Autoback as the very last line in the AUTOEXEC.BAT file.
