AddStor SSUTIL Utility Reports MS-DOS 6.x as Version 5.0 (96383)
The information in this article applies to:
• Microsoft MS-DOS operating system 6.0
• Microsoft MS-DOS operating system 6.2
• Microsoft MS-DOS operating system 6.21
• Microsoft MS-DOS operating system 6.22
This article was previously published under Q96383
The AddStor compression information utility, SSUTIL, incorrectly reports
the following information about MS-DOS version 6.0:
VERSION is MS-DOS 5.0
REPORTED version is 6.0
SSUTIL looks at the boot record signature to determine the version of
MS-DOS. It then calls the GetMSDOSVersion() function to determine the
reported version number.
Because the boot record signature is the same for MS-DOS 5.0 and MS-DOS
6.0, SSUTIL incorrectly reports the version number.
NOTE: The incorrect version number detection does not cause any problems
or incompatibilities between MS-DOS 6.x and the AddStor utility.
