When I started a program in Win3.11 it said, that I need Win32s on my computer. I installed Win32s on my PC but when I tried to start it, Windows return "unexpected error 21"

Is this it?

Unexpected DOS Error 21 can occur when you try to run Math CAD for Windows, version 4.0. To resolve this problem, obtain Math CAD's Fax #2000.

I do not use MathCAD for Windows.
My problem is that I get the error with every Win32s program.

I think you may have MSVCRT20.DLL in your system directory, maybe some programs need this runtime file.

But, this version of MSVCRT20.DLL is not compatible with Win32s. So, that happens.

Hope this helps.

Can you tell me, where I get a new version of this MSVCRT20.DLL file?

Or are there some other .DLL files that could help me?


Anyway, thanks...
