Boot message - "line ?? is unrecognizable" following MM uninstall

Last Updated: 5th December, 1994

Symptoms

Error messages at boot time of the form "line xx is unrecognizable." following uninstall of Warp OS/2 MultiMedia.

Hardware

Any.

Problem

APAR PJ15966

Several users have reported having their CONFIG.SYS left in an unusable state after using the new-with-Warp Selective Uninstall object in the System Setup folder. Damage included extra lines at the end of the file and edit errors on individual lines.

Workaround

Do not use the OS/2 Warp Selective Uninstall feature to remove MMPM/2. Instead, use the following procedure:

  • Edit CONFIG.SYS and remove any references to the \MMOS2 directory.
  • Delete the contents of the Multimedia folder on the WPS Desktop, then delete the folder itself.
  • Shut down OS/2 and re-boot to free up any MMOS2 DLLs in use.
  • Remove the \MMOS2 directory.

Notes

None.
