Does anyone else have a problem with delay() and windows 2000. delay(2000), worked when I had windows 98, but since my laptop has had win2k, it just hasn't paused.

From the manual page
-----
Some operating systems that emulate DOS, such as OS/2 and Windows/NT,
hang the DOS session when the <Pause> key is pressed during the call to
`delay'. Plain DOS and Windows 3.X and 9X are known to not have this
bug.
-----

It's a DOS emulation - which means good enough for most use, not perfect.



Use the sleep function instead

awww, I hate microsoft, can't even emulate their own operating systems.

i feel you on that one... you all can't run my demos on XP/2K since the emulation doesn't support conventional memory simulation. of course we should all make boot disks with mouse drivers, and i hope all who would like to do so would do.
