Q31155: "Unable to Read TOOLS.INI" Message Appears in OS/2 with MEP
Article: Q31155 Product(s): See article Version(s): 1.00 Operating System(s): OS/2 Keyword(s): ENDUSER | | mspl13_basic Last Modified: 8-JUN-1988 MEP.EXE, the OS/2 version of the Microsoft editor, will give the following message when the INITIALIZE function is invoked (i.e., SHIFT-F8 in the default keyboard setup): "Unable to read TOOLS.INI" This message will appear if the editor's name is left as MEP while the TOOLS.INI tag for the editor is labeled [M]. The two names must match. To correct the problem, either rename the editor to M, or label the tag [MEP]. The tag can be set to [M MEP] if you wish to use the same TOOLS.INI settings for both real-mode and protected-mode versions of the editor.
