Re: *just* 14 more months to upgrade? @MJI
I do know that MS deliberately removed it. Very annoying.
Since our Windows software uses the same database as the older DOS software, migration has not been too difficult, but certain older tools just worked.
Our reindex tool was more stable in MS DOS executable than a Win32 Console mode, but the netbios thing in 7 32 bit prevented us repairing a database - we zipped it up brought it back to the office to fix.
We did have a competitor using our late appearance in Windows as a selling point, but out MS DOS package was so much more powerful that it took us years to convert. He used to get very nasty and was annoyed when our new version appeared.
We still have a couple of customers running our DOS system on XP, and a few customers still using older DOS screens on a couple of PCs against the latest database.
I liked XP as I could run both our old system and our new system. As a developer being able to run all of your software is good.
Now we get sales where prospective customers do not like the same competitlrs software,
