Considering that it seems no one has a revised 'wrapper.sys', and except my tentative to help you, you didn't find here too many positive reactions, the only solution for you would have been to patch the existing 'wrapper.sys'. Again, it seems that you have no disponibility for this, which is not a problem for me anyway. So for now you have no choice but to don't "wrap" TSRs when using MS-DOS 7.

Usually it is considered "de bon ton" for the people to provide the link when refering to it in their posts. Even if you don't think so, please understand that my request was not an idiosyncrasy.

I am not too old generally, I am just too old to be interested in challenges. And I never said that patching DOS is trivial, I just said that the task is easy for someone who has the needed knowledge, as any other task. Do people who have enough knowledge about MS-DOS 7 internals still exist? Yes, they still exist. So address them! This is what I wanted to tell, but now I have to be more explicit in order for you to finally understand.

You are welcome! (What acid remarks?).
