MS-DOS 4.0 Redirector Needed When Upgrading PCSA Networks (73447)

The information in this article applies to:
    Microsoft MS-DOS operating system 5.0

This article was previously published under Q73447


When upgrading machines using Digital Equipment Corporation (DEC) Pathworks or PCSA networks, you may encounter "Incorrect DOS version" error messages when attempting to load REDIR.EXE. This can occur despite using the SETVER command as outlined in the version 5.0 "Microsoft MS-DOS Getting Started" manual. You should ensure that you are using the DOS 4.0 redirectors because the MS-DOS 3.3 redirectors do not recognize the version number as reported by SETVER.


The DOS 4.0 redirector is available on the PCSA Client Setup Disks, Disk 2, as REDIR400.EXE. This file should be copied to the hard drive using the following command:
   COPY A:REDIR400.EXE [drive:][path]REDIR.EXE
where [drive:][path] are the drive letter and path to the current REDIR.EXE file.

MS-DOS 3.3 redirectors are not supported in MS-DOS 5.0.
