    Hello tech,:)
    It's easter, so I realise some helpers might be away and help might be a bit slow as well as answers from me until Tuesday, lol.

    I got a problem, driving me up the wall for four days now.:mad:
    I use a developer program to make executables (hobby of mine saves me going troppo) called Clarion, it works OK, I made a DOSable program with it, it works OK.

    Once I could open to full size DOS screen by pressing the Alt+Enter keys and it would stay open until I was finished with it, then I could revert back to a small screen by pressing Alt+Enter keys again.

    Now if I press Alt+Enter keys the DOS screen appears, but it stays open in full screen for a couple of seconds then automatically closes back to the usual small screen.:(

    I have tried right clicking on the icon, properties, screen and putting a dot in the full size option, but this does not work.

    I have scanned my PC for viruses etc but no joy there.
    I have Dialup only, so don't ask me to do a Panda or Trend scan as they drop you if you no got broadband.

    I'm using XP pro, 512meg ram, using a Gigabyte MB, and Nivida video card.
    XP working OK-dokie, sound ok-dokie, video ok-dokie, screen to DOS wonkie.


    OK what do I do now:confused:

    You can download PowerCmd and use CTRL+ENTER to test its full screen mode.
