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.


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.
