WINDOWS 2000

I used to compile several programs with my old WIN95 .Apparently I cannot do it now with the 2000 version, and when going to the DOSPROMPT,DOS refuses all commands I used before.Is it become impossible?

I don't think so since I'm running it fine on Windows XP. Hmmmm What specific message are you getting (when you try those usual commands)?

Try copying the command.com file off of your windows 95 cd. I bet you could also find it on the web :roll:

Umm what part of WINDOWS 2000 did you not understand?

URSULE, is it possible that you forgot to bring your programs with you into Win2k, or that some paths are incorrect? :D

The guy with the name I cannot spell has a point. I bet its becuase you use the C:\windows path and you should use the c:\documents and settings\yourcompname in doss docs and settings are docume~1 :lol:

It's quite obvious that the program you're looking for is not installed. Ever considered installing it? :D

adosorken and Nekrophidius are one and the same person. Unless you're being horribly sarcastic, I figured such a thing was quite common knowledge. :D

Compil with WIN2000

Post by URSULE » Thu Jan 20, 2005 6:52 am

The reason I cannot compil is because to do this, I use a document written in notepad then copied in the interpretor program and then saved as file.text.
Then to compil,in win 95, I rename the text file.txt as file.bas and in my documents, I see the file modified with a bas icon.
Now, if I do the same still in my documents, but in win 2000, I see no modification of the icon, and more, this file, originally file.txt now file.bas is ignored by the interpretor program.This is why the compilator finds nothing,probably. I don't understand why the modification here is not made to that file?

Somewhere in the Folder Options for Windows Explorer (and I don't mean Internet Explorer) is a checkbox with the text "Hide extensions for known file types". It's clearly checked off on the system you're talking about that does not change the icons when you change the extension. Find this checkbox and uncheck it. Your problem will then be solved. :D

What are you compiling with? QB4.5 or PDS7.1, I once had probs with 7.1 compiling, just turned out that my QBX libraries where not loaded up right or something, or I put them in the wrong spot, :) ,..

:wink: I'm prob way off, lol, I get that way sometimes.. I'm on WIN98 mind also,.
