If your AUTOEXEC.BAT, CONFIG.SYS, or Windows SYSTEM.INI file is marked as
read-only, MemMaker displays the following error message:
MemMaker cannot continue because it cannot gain access to the
AUTOEXEC.BAT, CONFIG.SYS, or Windows SYSTEM.INI file. Make sure the
read-only attribute for those files is not set.
To undo MemMaker's changes, press ENTER.
If your AUTOEXEC.BAT file or SYSTEM.INI file is marked read-only but
the CONFIG.SYS file is not, MemMaker does not undo the changes it made
to the CONFIG.SYS file.
To work around this problem, remove the read-only attribute on the
AUTOEXEC.BAT and/or SYSTEM.INI file and restart MemMaker. To remove the
read-only attribute on the AUTOEXEC.BAT and/or SYSTEM.INI files, use the
ATTRIB command as follows:
attrib c:\autoexec.bat -r
attrib c:\windows\system.ini -r
