    Has anyone here been able to run dbase III under Windows 7?

    I want to continue using this program and am now dual booting to an XP setup in order to do it.

    I was not able to get it to run in the Windows 7 virtual machine set up with XP.

    Any suggestions or is this an impossible task?

    I got it running under the virtual machine in Windows 7 and in Windows 98 compatibility mode. There is a problem now that I have not solved so far but will keep trying. It is that the screen is very small and so far, I cannot correct it by running it "maximized" or in the different screen resolutions.

    If I can get this to run in a full screen mode, I will leave the answer here.
