"Couldn't lock file, share.exe hasn't been loaded"

The help menu says to add SHARE.EXE\L:500 to the Autoexec.bat  file (1) I didn't think machine now a days use autoexe.bat file anymore (2) I don't know how to do this (3) What is this for? Thanks for any help

Make sure you do the same with the .LDB file as well. Share.exe is no more required. This was for Win 3.1
