    Hi
    I am running a clipper program on a novell network, and my client machines have been running on Windows 95/98.
    I have been operating with the following line in the autoexec.bat :SET CLIPPER=E:00;F:250;SWAPPATH:'C:\WINDOWS\TEMP\'

    I have a machine that is not running on Windows XP, and i have no idea where to add the above line, or how to make it work..
    each time i try to run that program i get the following error "Unrecoverable Error 5311; cannot create VM swap file"
    where do i set the variables in Windows XP?.

    Thanks!

    Go to C:\windows\system32, and edit Autoexec.NT and Config.NT there is where the environment variables and DOS configuration must be set, every Dos Box that is opened will use the values within this files.

    DonĀ“t expect to see them if you type the SET command, but they are initialized and the clipper program will read them.
