The information in this article applies to:

If you bring up an Int 16-based terminate-and-stay-resident (TSR) program when MS-DOS Editor or QBASIC is running, your computer stops responding (hangs).

NOTE: The Banyan VINES MS-DOS redirector uses INT 16 calls.

This problem occurs when the TSR loads a 25-line character display image over MS-DOS Editor or QBASIC.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in the versions of MS-DOS Editor and QBASIC included with MS-DOS versions 6.0, 6.2, and 6.21. We are researching this problem and will post new information here in the Microsoft Knowledge Base as it becomes available.
