    XP 9x/ME emulation

    i haven't upgraded to XP [and might not] but isn't there a 9x/ME emulation feature that you can boot up in? and, if so, wouldn't that have the DOS support so you could check my programs? oh and just give me a _little_ more time, it'll be out there... 5.1 thanks

    xp has what it calls compatibility mode. how you do this is only a matter of checking your files properties and clicking the box for compat. mode and picking the os from the list you want xp to TRY and emulate while running your program.
    Free the weed!! Class B to class C is not good enough!!
    And the FAQ is here :- http://faq.cprogramming.com/cgi-bin/smartfaq.cgi

    Dunno DA. Your programs rock, you're probably able, so why don't you learn Win32 API and do it all with directdraw or opengl?

    hmm... don't have the compiler... don't have the resources... and most importantly... don't have the time... i'm sorry if my creativity is only for those Chosen to have DOS in their blood...

    I couldn't get one of your programs (don't know how many you've done), to work under any of the XP compatability mode settings. I just kept getting conventional memory errors.

    I think the compatatbility mode just fools the program into think it's running on a different version of Windows, so if the XP Dos VM isn't capable of running your programs then the compatability mode isn't going to help.

    I thik compatibility mode just fixes the api calls.
    Won't do squat to help you run an old dos proggie (or a new dos one for that matter)

    or you could get a boot disk for 9x or me or maybe xp [if it has one] or an old DOS disk. and boot from it and see if it runs... which i'm sure it would...
