Poledit work-around for MS-DOS limitation
Posted on 1997-08-31
At our school, I have installed system policies via POLEDIT and have
included a restriction on running MSDOS programs for all students. This is
one bit of POLEDIT which actually works!
However I have received some subject resource CDs which run from MSDOS
applications so I need to circumvent the MSDOS limitation for these
Every time a student runs the application they, of course, get rejected
because "the system administrator has restricted access to this
application". I'd like to get around this without removing the restriction
on running other MSDOS programs.
I did come across a batch file which someone had written to do this. It
goes something like this:
However, I can't get it to work. Can someone suggest what else I might need
to set - program properties etc. Is the above information incorrect
altogether? Any advice would be appreciated.
