program won't run standalone
I'm a tech - not a programmer. But, I must revive a crashed pc with a particular tried and proven program from another computer.
The program won't run from a floppy, in another computer, or even in another directory. The program executes flawlessly within the program directory it resides in (Borland, Turbo Basic). There are different versions of the original code. I have the same problem with each. The program is in executable code. What is missing when it is moved? The program is used to print incrementing numbers onto labels. The program has been used in different pcs running DOS or Windows.
I'm guessing it has to do with environment, configuration, file association, - something other than programming errors.
