I'm having trouble running Microsoft Direct X based applications on my P166 PC Compatibility card. (Mac 7220/64 - MacOS 8.1).  All such applications just seem to have various ways of terminally jamming. Has anyone struck this problem? Does anyone know how to fix it? Any help appreciated.

I should also mention that the performance tab in the system control panel shows that the PC card is operating in MSDOS compatibility mode. I can't seem to fix this problem either. Perhaps it is related.

I'm pretty sure the regular DirectX distributions will not include the right drivers for Apple sound chips of Apple video. Goto C:\Program Files\Direct X\Setup, and run DXSETUP. It will tell you which of your drivers are certified for DirectX and which are not. Check with the maker of the card to see if they have a custom DirectX distribution specifically for their DOS cards.

My PC card is an Apple. So far I haven't found any suitable software updates. I'll have another look.

Thanks

I'm not trying to be point greedy, but see the answer posted to your other question. This problem is caused by that one. Try VirtualPC or SoftWindows.

I had the same problem all you have to do is update the system software.  Restart.... Update the software for the PC-Card....Restart...Then you have to go online and get the new DirectX ver 6.1...


    It looks like a lot but i worked for me!!
