I'm Running Win 98 on 266Mhz Pent II 64 Mb ram.
I have several dos based programs that I use to design Speaker enclosures. I want to run then in a window so that I can switch between them. The program will boot up fine and the data entry part is text based but when I go to graph results the computer locks up and I have to reboot.Control/Alt/ Del does not work. When I had Win 95 they all worked fine in a window and could switch between them.
They all work in MS Dos mode only but the time it takes to get to Dos mode and then back to Win 98 is very irritaing plus I can't switch between them.
Is there a way I can set the properties of the programs to allow them to run in a window?
