Displays the version table. Reports a version number (earlier than 6.0) to programs or device drivers that were designed for earlier versions of MS-DOS. You can also use this command to display and modify the version table, which lists names of programs and the number of the MS-DOS version with which they are designed to run. If you are using a program that has not been updated for this version of MS-DOS, you can add its name to the version table by using the SETVER command. Syntax SETVER [drive:path][filename n.nn] SETVER [drive:path][filename [/DELETE [/QUIET]] To display the current version table, use the following syntax: SETVER [drive:path] MS-DOS displays two columns: the left column lists the names of the program files; the right column lists the corresponding MS-DOS version with which each file is set to run. Parameters [drive:path] Specifies the location of the SETVER.EXE file. filename Specifies the name of the program file (usually an .EXE or .COM file) that you want to add to the version table. You cannot use a wildcard character (* or ?). n.nn Specifies the MS-DOS version (for example, 3.3 or 4.01) that MS-DOS 6 reports to the specified program file. Switches /DELETE Deletes the version-table entry for the specified program file. You can abbreviate this switch as /D. /QUIET Hides the message typically displayed during deletion of an entry from the version table.
