You may receive the following error message if you are using MS-DOS
Error: R6003 - Integer Divide by Zero
This error message can be caused by corrupted DoubleSpace files or
incompatible terminate-and-stay-resident (TSR) programs.
To work around this problem, do the following:
• Copy the DBLSPACE.BIN file from Disk 1 of the original MS-DOS Upgrade
disk set to the root directory for your host drive. For example,
if your compressed drive is C, and your host drive is H, type the
following at the MS-DOS command prompt and then press ENTER:
To determine your host drive for drive C, type dblspace /list at the MS-DOS command prompt and then
Note: If there is an existing DBLSPACE.BIN file on the host drive but
it is corrupted, remove the attributes from the file before copying a
new one to the drive. For example, type attrib h:\dblspace.bin -r -s
-h at the MS-DOS command prompt and
then press ENTER.
• Expand the DBLSPACE.EXE files from the original MS-DOS disks. For
example, type the following at the MS-DOS command prompt and then
DBLSPACE.EX_ is located on Disk 3 of the 1.44-megabyte (MB) 3.5-inch
disk set and on Disk 4 of the 1.2-MB 5.25-inch disk set.
expand a:\dblspace.ex_ c:\dblspace.exe
• Restart your computer by pressing the reset button or by turning
the machine off and then on again.
• If you have not eliminated the problem, restart your computer
again. To isolate the problem, press the Clean Start function key (F5)
or the Interactive Startup function key (F8) when the text "Starting
MS-DOS..." appears to eliminate unnecessary device drives and TSRs.
