Hi James,

I stumbled over that bug a few days ago. To fix it:



In the editor find the line:

SHELLHIGH=C:\FDOS\bin\ C:\FDOS\bin /E:1024 /P=C:\autoexec.bat

and change it to:

1234?SHELLHIGH=C:\FDOS\bin\ C:\FDOS\bin /E:1024 

(In one line)

The problem was this: There wasn't any line that included the fourth 
option as a choice ("1234?") only lines with choices "123?". So 
FreeDOS automatically won't make it possible to choose the fourth 
option. So (as shown above) we take a line that is mandatory for all 
options and include it in all choices (1234?).

Of course the best solution for you would be to make the fourth option 
the default. To do that:


Find the line:
