Hi,

I've installed FreeDOS 1.2 in VirtualBox.

I'm trying to use the Append command to make a file available globally 

I'm using this format:

append c:\pe\pe.x

 

I receive:

Incorrect DOS version

 

How do I use the append command in freedos?

 

Any help much appreciated

David

Probably append is the wrong version.

Why not just modify the path variable?

path=%path%;c:\pe\pe.x

Found the answer for DOSBox for any one interested:

 

in disk Z:

 

ver set 6 22

 

Then in C:

append c:\pe\

 

As far as I understand you can you can only do the APPEND command once per DOSBox session, the format's the same as PATH.

 

Hope this helps someone
