This information applies to both Microsoft DoubleSpace and Microsoft DriveSpace. For MS-DOS 6.22, use DRVSPACE in place of DBLSPACE for commands and filenames.

According to Computer Lab International Technical Support, the 5250 emulator card and software do not work unless you have the following command in your CONFIG.SYS file:
Since DoubleSpace usually adds this line to the CONFIG.SYS file, this problem should rarely occur.


If you are having problems with the emulation software even though the DEVICE=C:\DOS\DBLSPACE.SYS /MOVE line is in your CONFIG.SYS file, move the command closer to the top of the file.

The 5250 emulator card and software are manufactured by Computer Lab International, a vendor independent of Microsoft; we make no warranty, implied or otherwise, regarding this product's performance or reliability.
