5th Generation's Direct Access version 5.1 for MS-DOS may generate the following error message after you upgrade to MS-DOS 6.0 or later:

Failed Detection Level 1: has changed.


According to 5th Generation Technical Support, the Direct Access installation must be upgraded to work correctly with MS-DOS 6.0 or later. This procedure involves deleting all executable files (.EXEs) from the subdirectory containing Direct Access files, clean booting with MS-DOS 6.0 or later, and then reinstalling Direct Access by choosing the "Perform update from prior version of Direct Access 5.1" option during the Direct Access Setup.

For more information on this procedure, call 5th Generation Technical Support.
