When you run MemMaker on a computer running SuperStor Pro, the system may provide an error messages about an illegal read to a device and then prompt you with an "Abort, Retry, Fail?" message, or you may receive the "Bad or missing command interpreter" error message.

To prevent this problem, add *SSTORDRV and *DEVSWAP to the MEMMAKER.INF file.


If you have already run MemMaker and your machine stops responding (hangs) at the "Abort, Retry, Fail?" prompt, do the following:

    Restart your computer.
    Type memmaker /undo at the MS-DOS command prompt and then press ENTER.
    Edit your CONFIG.SYS and AUTOEXEC.BAT files with MS-DOS Editor. If MemMaker was unable to undo its changes, remove the MemMaker commands (such as CHKSTATE.SYS, SIZER.EXE, and MEMMAKER.EXE /SESSION) and save the files.
