Hi,

I have a application that works on DOS mode. Whem I Start the same Apps on my Windows 2000 Computer, the Enter Key doesn't work very good. Sometimes with the ASSCII Code Alt+13 it works, but not always.

Thanks ...

I usually get around this by running the following command before starting the application:
mode con codepage select=850

Try that and see if it "works around" your problem.

The place to fix this is in start | control panel | regional settings, but i haven't had much luck with it, but maybe you will.

Hope this helps
