Q: When installing the DOS LAN Requester, do I need to change the configuration on the PC?

A: The DOS LAN Requester installation may fail with an obscure message about a file having a read-only attribute. If it does, the failure may be because of the SHARE program being started in the AUTOEXEC.BAT file. Remove the SHARE statement from the file, reboot the PC, and try the DOS LAN Requester installation again. After the installation, you can add the SHARE statement back to the AUTOEXEC.BAT file.
