NET5.COM Requires /C= Switch to Use SHELL.CFG (77456)
The information in this article applies to:
• Microsoft MS-DOS operating system 5.0
This article was previously published under Q77456
Microsoft MS-DOS version 5.0 requires an upgraded NET5.COM file to
operate correctly on a Novell network. Parameters for the NET5.COM
file are stored in a SHELL.CFG or NET.CFG file.
This non-formatted text file created by the user or network
administrator could include options for preferred server=, File
Handles=, and Show Dots=. The SHELL.CFG or NET.CFG file will not be
recognized with NET5.COM unless the program switch /C is added to the
end of the NET5.COM command line.
In previous versions, the SHELL.CFG or NET.CFG file would be read
automatically if found in the same directory as NET3.COM or NET4.COM
file when executed. To have NET5.COM use the SHELL.CFG or NET.CFG
file, it requires the program switch
on the command line (where [path\] is the drive and directory
location, and <filename.ext> is the specified filename).
