Each time I uses the Crt unit it keeps saying "Error 200: Division by zero"
Why is this?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

That is becouse you have PentiumII or higher processor. To fix this problem you should have another Pascal compiler.

The reason that hapenes is because you have a computer that's too fast.

Within the crt unit, there's a calculation for the delay procedure. When you have a computer that's fast enough, a counting variable (with the size of a word) will overflow, wich causes the "Division by Zero" exception.
