RAM Drive Icon in Anti-Virus Is Incorrect with DoubleSpace (112858)

When you use a RAM drive with Microsoft MS-DOS version 6.0 or later, it is
represented by a regular hard disk drive icon rather than the RAM drive
icon in the Microsoft Anti-Virus for Windows drive list.
This problem occurs in the following situations:
• The line DEVICE=C:\DOS\RAMDRIVE.SYS is listed before the line
DEVICE=C:\DOS\DBLSPACE.SYS /MOVE in the CONFIG.SYS file.
• There is no DEVICE=C:\DOS\DBLSPACE.SYS /MOVE or
DEVICE=C:\DOS\DRVSPACE.SYS /MOVE line in the CONFIG.SYS file.
To correct this problem, move the line DEVICE=C:\DOS\RAMDRIVE.SYS below the
line DEVICE=C:\DOS\DBLSPACE.SYS /MOVE in the CONFIG.SYS file.
NOTE: The DEVICE=C:\DOS\DBLSPACE.SYS /MOVE line must be in the CONFIG.SYS
file. If it is not, the host drive is set to the first drive designated
after the RAM drive, even if the DBLSPACE.INI file is configured
