Connection problem with DOS Application

By aum003 ·
I just bought a new DELL 1.3GHz,128MB RDRAM with integrated NIC machine, Win98. I use it to run a DOS-based database application (on a NT server) from it but I am experiencing weird situation that the program hangs while I try to run some complicated reports. The older computers (266 to 866Hz) has no problem running this program at all. I have put the same autoexec.bat and config.sys setting to new computer. What else can I try?

Problems with Dos application

by hp In reply to Connection problem with D ...

We are using a dos application that are sensitive for caching. It mighy be the same with your program.
You may try to right click on my computer,
properties, choose performance, filesystem
fault location and mark the last square. (deactivate caching all stations)
Some of my expression my not be the right, because I am trying to translate from norwegian to english.
It is worth a try. It is easy to change back if it is not working. All our programs, both windows and dos, works with this option changed.
