Trying to run Old dos program , pfs first choice, in windows xp pro
Posted on 2009-04-28
We are upgrading our computers(current computers are xp) new ones are xp pro with vista license. Have run first choice and ctr pro dos programs for last 5 years with no problems. On the xp pro the ctr program works fine but the first choice will not. If i run the first.com file it will come back in a dos window "cannot find first choice" If I try to run the first1.exe it will give me a runtime error r6009. Need to print also. I run first.com file on the current computers, have compared file settings on the shortcuts and they are the same.
At a loss as to what to do.
We only use the data base in first choice, and it is very user friendly. Would consider switching to a new program if it had the same capabilitys. But I have never found anything close to its functionality.
