Q58639: Token Ring Network Driver May Conflict with BASIC 7.00 Setup
Article: Q58639 Product(s): See article Version(s): 7.00 Operating System(s): MS-DOS Keyword(s): ENDUSER | SR# S900207-50 B_BasicCom | mspl13_basic Last Modified: 26-FEB-1990 A customer reported that when running the SETUP.EXE installation program for Microsoft BASIC Professional Development System (PDS) Version 7.00 for MS-DOS and OS/2, problems may occur if a Token Ring network device driver Version 1.10 has been loaded from the CONFIG.SYS file during a system boot. Upon removing the device driver and rebooting the system, everything seems to install and build correctly. The customer reported that the source files on the distribution disks were overwritten with the current system date and weren't properly unpacked onto the hard disk, and subsequent library and toolbox builds crashed because of the corrupt files used. Microsoft has not confirmed this information.
