Runtime error 003


I've received a program working under DOS. It's written a couple of years ago, and it isn't working on the newer computers. I need to get it fixed though.
When I ran it on my computer it gave a Runtime error 200, so I looked it up, and found a patch to fix this error. (DizCover)

When I run it now, it gives a runtime error 003 ? I can't find any information about it, no patches ... what can I do to make it work again ?

Exact error: Runtime error 003 at 0D49:1E42.

what program is it?
☠ MASQ ☠Commented:
Runtime 003 is a path/file error & usually relates to the number of characters in the name of a path.  Remember that DOS only supports 8 character file/folder names in the path and no spaces.

M :o)

Yeah but they told me the program's working fine on a win95 computer.

the program's situated in c:\atm
Is program in directory  c:\atm  in working or not working computer.
Next Dos restriction (in some interuption) is limititation of
total path length to 80 or 128 (I am not sure) characters
