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

This article was previously published under Q77224


For the DD.EXE device driver portion of LapLink to be compatible with MS-DOS 5.0, you must use LapLink version 3.0a (with DD.EXE version 3.0a).


The DD.EXE driver allows drives on remote computers to be remapped as local logical drives. When an older version of this driver is used (for example, version 1.35[a]), the machine will lock up. The version of the driver can be determined by its copyright message or by the driver's creation date; old drivers will have dates earlier than 1990.

According to Traveling Software, LapLink version 3.0, except for this driver, is compatible with MS-DOS 5.0.
