MSCDEX Doesn't Load with Trantor CD-ROM Driver (95956)

MSCDEX won't load with a Trantor CD-ROM driver.


MSCDEX can't find the Trantor CD-ROM driver TSLCDR.SYS (commonly used with Adaptec 1542b SCSI cards) when you have a very large CONFIG.SYS file (for example, greater than 100 lines) and you use a MS-DOS 6.0 multiple configuration menu.

As a result, MSCDEX won't load for this device driver.


To work around this problem, decrease the size of the CONFIG.SYS file or don't use a multiple configuration menu.


Microsoft is researching this problem and will post new information here as it becomes available.
