Err Msg After Installing MS-DOS: Your Computer Is Running... (115866)

The information in this article applies to:
    Microsoft MS-DOS operating system 6.22

This article was previously published under Q115866


The following error message is displayed when you try to run DriveSpace:

Your computer is running with an incompatible version of the DRVSPACE.BIN file. You must update DRVSPACE.BIN on the root directory of drive <drive letter>.
This error message is also displayed if you try to run DoubleSpace; however, <drive letter> is replaced by an at symbol (@) rather than the actual drive letter.

At this point, your DoubleSpace-compressed volumes may be inaccessible.


This error occurs after you install MS-DOS 6.22 to a directory other than the one that contains your MS-DOS 6.0 DoubleSpace files (typically C:\DOS). In this situation, the DBLSPACE.BIN file is not properly updated.


To correct this problem, uninstall MS-DOS 6.22 and then reinstall MS-DOS 6.22 into the directory that contains your MS-DOS files.
