After you upgrade to MS-DOS 6.x, you may receive the following message if you are using Stacker:

WARNING: Unrecognized load high method. Unable to verify driver fit
The driver loads successfully, but you must press a key to continue.


This message occurs if you use a DEVICEHIGH= command for the Stacker device drivers in your CONFIG.SYS file. It does not occur if you use a DEVICE= command.


To work around this problem, ensure the command for SETVER.EXE is located above the Stacker device drivers in the CONFIG.SYS file. To do this, SETVER.EXE must be located on the uncompressed Stacker partition.

    Copy SETVER.EXE to the uncompressed drive. For example, if your compressed drive is C and the swap drive is D, copy SETVER.EXE to drive D as follows:
          copy c:\dos\setver.exe d:\

    Put the following SETVER.EXE statement at the top of your CONFIG.SYS file:

    Restart your computer.
