According to Personics technical support, you must replace the file DOSSHELL.VID with SCREEN.VID from their distribution disk to make the MS-DOS Shell Task Swapper work correctly on the UltraVision Laptop computer.


Use the following procedure to replace the DOSSHELL.VID file:

    Change to the directory that contains the Shell files (usually the \DOS directory).
    Rename the DOSSHELL.VID file with the following command:
          rename dosshell.vid dosshell.1st

    Copy the file SCREEN.VID from the UltraVision disk to DOSSHELL.VID as follows:
