The Learning Company's earlier Reader and Writer Rabbit software
applications may lock a computer system with ANSI.SYS loaded high
using MS-DOS version 5.0. This problem occurs when either program is
executed from the hard disk and the program requests the key disk be
inserted into the floppy drive. When this is done, the system may lock
The problem might be caused by a copy protection scheme that both
these programs have. Reader 2.4 and Writer 1.2 are specific versions
that contain a copy protection scheme and have locked systems.
• Load ANSI.SYS low.
• Upgrade to a later version of either program. Reader version 4.1
and Writer version 1.3 no longer have a copy protection scheme and
do not produce the same problem as the earlier versions.
