DOS Applications hang on shortcut start at NTVDM
Posted on 2006-11-15
I have several legacy applications that I am have used for years. Some include Borland Turbo Pascal, and C++, Paradox, d/Base and such. I just moved to a new laptop. I went from a Dell Latitude series with a Pentium M processor and 1GB of RAM to an HP TC4400 with a Core Duo Processor and 3GB of RAM. After the switch, my apps seemed to sorta stop working.
If I start a cmd shell, and start the application, it works. However, if I try to start app (95% of the time) it hangs at NTVDM.
Can anyone think of way I can fix this?
