If FIXSHIFT.COM is invoked and it displays the message "FIXSHIFT Not Required," you can force it to install. You can force FIXSHIFT to install using the /I switch. The following can be typed on the DOS command line: DOS-PROMPT> FIXSHIFT /I FIXSHIFT should then display a banner message and a "FIXSHIFT Installed" message. One customer with a PC Craft Turbo computer reported that he had to run FIXSHIFT/I to successfully use SHIFT+INSERT to copy text in the QB.EXE editor.
