Document relates to: Laplink for DOS

 

SUMMARY

I need to connect a computer running in DOS to a computer running in Windows. What version of Laplink do I use?

 

SOLUTION

Laplink V for DOS is used for computers that cannot boot to Windows. However, this version of Laplink will not install when running Windows. Furthermore, Laplink V/DOS does not connect to any other version of Laplink running in Windows. The Windows command prompt (virtual DOS machine) is not a substitute for DOS. 

Instead, you must install and run Laplink V/DOS on both computers. See Technical Document 718: How to Install and Use Laplink V/DOS to Rescue Data from a Computer for more information.
