The examples for the command "setver"

It is important to note that the use of "setver" may no longer be supported on modern versions of Windows. The `SETVER` command is used to set or change the version number reported by MS-DOS to a program. Here are some examples of using `SETVER`: Example 1: Displaying the current version table

SETVER

This command displays the current version table. Example 2: Adding an entry to the version table

SETVER C:\Path\To\Program.exe 6.22

An entry for the program "Programm.exe" with the reported MS-DOS version 6.22 is added here. Example 3: Deleting an entry from the version table

SETVER C:\Path\To\Program.exe /DELETE

This command deletes the entry for the program "Programm.exe" from the version table. If the entry is deleted, the program reports the default version of MS-DOS. Example 4: Deleting an entry from the version table without a message

SETVER C:\Path\To\Program.exe /DELETE /QUIET

Here the entry for the program “Programm.exe” is deleted without a message. Hints: - Replace "C:\Path\To\Program.exe" with the actual path and file name of the program you want to set the version number for. - Replace "6.22" with the desired MS-DOS version. - Note that the use of `SETVER` may no longer be necessary in modern versions of Windows due to changes in operating system architecture. If you need more specific instructions or examples for a specific use case, please let me know.

Important information, tips for the "setver" command

There are some important considerations when dealing with `SETVER` and possible alternatives: --- SETVER: 1. Compatibility: `SETVER` was primarily used in older versions of MS-DOS and early versions of Windows. In modern versions of Windows it may no longer be as relevant, as many older programs are supported by the newer operating system versions. 2. Admin rights: In some cases, you may need administrative rights to use `SETVER`, especially when adding or deleting entries in the version table. --- Alternatives: 1. Compatibility Mode: Modern versions of Windows provide a compatibility mode that allows you to run older applications in an older operating system environment. You can do this through the properties of the file to be executed. 2. DOSBox: When it comes to running MS-DOS programs, DOSBox is a powerful alternative. DOSBox is an emulator for MS-DOS and allows running DOS applications on various operating systems. 3. Windows XP Mode: For some older applications, Windows offers a "Windows XP Mode" that creates a Windows XP virtual machine for running older programs. 4. Customizations in the application: Sometimes changes can be made directly in the application to make it compatible with modern operating systems. This may require updating the application itself. --- Important Considerations: - Backup: Before using `SETVER` or making changes to an application, you should create a backup to ensure you can undo changes. - Security: Review security risks, especially when using older software that may no longer be supported. - Vendor Support: Check for updates or recommendations from the application provider to ensure compatibility with modern operating systems. - Documentation: Consult the application and operating system documentation for specific compatibility instructions. Note that the choice of method depends on the specific application and it may require some trial and error to find the best solution for your needs.
