Paradox 4.5Dos in Win95

Just got new computer with Win 95 -- also just got Paradox 8.  I have Paradox 4.5 for DOS, and while the tables will transfer just fine, I'm going to be (it looks like) having to create scripts, reports, forms, etc. for PDox8.  This will take time, and I need the info printed out soon and often!!  So, I copied PDox 4.5 to Win 95 and when I attempted to run it got this message:  Unexpected Condition: GP0000 at Paradox:28:1323: Leaving Paradox
Obviously, I'm not getting my info this way :)  I know that it's possible to run DOS programs in Win 95, but what's necessary to get PDox 4.5 to join that crowd?  TXS!!

Try the following:

Make a Copy of the Start|Programs|Dos MS-Prompt (Copy/Paste) and rename the copy Paradox for DOS or whatever.

Select it Properties and edit the program tab to point to wherever you installed Paradox at.

Make sure that the Memory Tab reflects the environment that you need for Paradox /DOS.

Save the changes and attempt to execute the (PIF) file.

In theory, the default memory settings should be enough to get Paradox running, but if not, fiddle arround with the difrent option in the memory TAB.

Hope this helps.

Very vague to say the least!!  Not of any help because of it.  I've already got the program under its own icon -- if I had known the memory settings, I'd have naturally done that :)

Here's the solution that I've since found, and it works!!:  

Add to the end of the file name that runs the program (paradox.exe) the following switch:

-extk 3096
