Hello to the savvy ,

i have a new computer with xp pro.I used to run a Dos Based

program in win98. But using XP pro , this program start

for a second, just pop the entrance logo then disappear from the screen.

I tried all the compatibility combination offered by xp pro =same thing.

My tech tell me that i should intall win98 in a seperate partition

and boot on it when i want to use my program.The cost would be

4 hours work at $50/hour.

Is there an economic better way to proceed ?

I was thinking installing a new partition 1 gig with Partition Magic 8

and installing dos 6.22 on it , but i am scared that it messed my whole

system:pentium4 , 2.4 , ram=1gig, hd=40 split in C=20 D=20 in NTFS

:?: The faulty program is Avantage 7.1 accounting =with no support from the company...

Have you tried to set the Compatibility to Windows 95 or 98 in the shortcut to the program?
