hi hope you are well.
so, i have a customers windows 2000 machine here.
disk knackered. managed to clone using ddrescue to new IDE (yes, ide) disk. fix file structure errors.
then it still wouldn't boot. turned out to be system registry issue. managed to fix it by running the win 2k registry fixer from a doctored xp boot disk, which was in itself a massive nightmare..
there is a program on the machine that is no longer available and controls thousands of pounds worth of kit. they don't make the kit anymore, or the old software. the new software doesn't control the old kit. the motherboard is specific to this kit and importantly the pci card that connects to the kit.
so i need to get this program working on this exact box.
it is there, i can click the exe but it doesnt do much , just runs the egg timer.
i need to find out what it is calling that currently doesn't exist that prevents it from working.
any ideas please? been a loooong road this one already!
