DoubleSpace User Interface Text Not Visible on Monochrome (99241)

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.

When you run DoubleSpace on a monochrome video display screen, some text and some highlighted screens are not viewable. For example, when you select a menu, you may be unable to see the selected command.


There is no way to directly change the default colors or the video display. To work around this problem, use the command-line parameters instead of the character-based user interface.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in MS-DOS 6.0, 6.2, and 6.22. We are researching this problem and will post new information here in the Microsoft Knowledge Base as it becomes available.
