WIN98 computer. Y2K compatible, running windows AND running a DOS program under DOS in the same computer.
All working fine for last 5 months since getting new computer. On 5 Jan I acessed the DOS program(first time this new year). Got a black screen with message:
Screenio V2.1.046(16.29.50 mar 22,1990) aborted in panel ars005am reason=0035 evaluation perion has expired.
So in my miniscule computer knowledge I ended up resetting the date on the computer from y 2000 to y 1986. Now my DOS program works. This program was bought about 1995 and used since then in a 286, then a 386 and for five months in my present windos computer. The software co. (OxTech) has long been out of buis. It's not a demo...came with discs, manual etc.
MY QUESTION: how do I put the correct fix ot the computer....(Is there a fix?) and ...will I screw up anything to come by leaving the date at 1986?
Shoud I toggle the date back and forth as I use the DOS program(almost every day)....I dont use spreadsheets or anything that has a changing date. A real step by step fix would be great!
