RE: Re: Windows Question



Long ago, prior to the 286 CPU chip, all DOS applications ran in "real
mode",
where all of the computers resources were needed for the application. Today,
computers run in "protected mode" where each DOS program has it's own
virtual machine.
Very few DOS applications require "real mode". I got rid of most of mine
long
ago.

For those "few" applicatons that won't run under Windows ME you can boot
your
computer using your old Windows 95 or Windows 98 startup disk then run the
program from the C: prompt. An inconvenience, but should work fine. A better
choice
would be to update your software.
