How to tell if an old-style "Device=xxxxxxx.386" code is loaded

I have an application that was origianally run under Win98. There are three "Devie=XXXXXXX.386" files that were entered inthe 386Enh section of the SYSTEM.INI file.  I've placed them in the similar file for XP, which I understand is in fact processed for backward compatibility.  Still, the application doesn't run, but I can't tell if it is because these 386 files are not loaded.  Is there a way to tell?

Have you tried running this under the W98 compatibility mode?  Right click the shortcut to the app and you will find a Compatiblity tab..

Hi, all

I'm trying that. There seems to be some disk activity when trying different compat modes, while there was none before. This is getting closer.  I've spent about 4 hours on it today and will report back soon!
