If you use DESQview version 2.33 or earlier, and you have SETVER.EXE loaded as a device driver, the Setver device does not report the specified version of MS-DOS to the application. This may result in the error message "Incorrect DOS Version" when you run a program that requires a previous version of MS-DOS, even though it is correctly loaded into the SETVER table.


If you have programs that require the use of SETVER in MS-DOS and want to run them in DESQview, contact the Quarterdeck Orders Department for an upgrade of DESQview to version 2.34.


A list of programs that require SETVER is available by typing SETVER at the MS-DOS command prompt. Additional programs may also require the use of SETVER.

Contact the Quarterdeck for more information about DESQview.
