Running DOS Program under XP Pro
Posted on 2008-11-05
I have an old DOS database that I need to run. Windows 3.11 is obsolete (this is where the database was developed and executed.) I cannot change or convert the database.
When I get properties on the executable, I run the following;
Compatibility: Windows 98/ME, 256 Colors, Disable Themes
It seems to work but I would like a larger DOS window.
Also, I get this error message: Warning There are insufficient allowable file handles in your CONFIG.SYS file. To properly utilize all of the features of Alpha Four, the "FILES=xx" command in your config.sys file should be set between 50 and 100.
How do I satisfy this error message?
