Error Using LOADHIGH (LH) With Third-Party Shell (93923)

If you use the new MS-DOS 6.0 and later LOADHIGH (LH) parameters (/L or
/S) with a third-party command interpreter (sometimes called a shell),
such as NDOS or 4DOS, you receive the following error message:
Error: Unknown Command "/l:<region1>;<region2>"
MS-DOS 6.0 and 6.2 COMMAND.COM supports two memory specific
parameters: /L and /S, which are determined by MemMaker. For example,
"LOADHIGH /L:0;1 MOUSE.COM" is a valid command in MS-DOS 6.0 and 6.2.
Third-party command interpreters such as 4DOS and NDOS are designed to
replace COMMAND.COM. These command interpreters have to be updated to
work correctly with the new /L and /S parameters.
To work around the problem, either use COMMAND.COM for your command
interpreter or remove the /L and /S parameters from your LOADHIGH (LH)
For more information or to obtain an update to your third-party
command interpreters, please contact your command interpreter vendor.
