Dos program requires SHARE

By SCrow ·
I need to run an old Dos based database. I'd like to run it on the WINNT 4.0 box.

When I try to run it at a dos prompt on a Win98 box, it says that it requires SHARE to be running.

Anyway to run this program on a windows box, especially an NT box?

Thanks,
Steve

Dos program requires SHARE

yeah...Kinda Ironic..I was dinking around with a Windows 3.1 machine today and an app stated that it needed to have share loaded. So I opened the manual and it said to load share in the autoexec.bat file
@Echo Off
Path=c:blah blah blah
set temp=c:\temp
c:\windows\smartdrv.exe 2048 1024
lh c:\dos\share.exe /l:50 /f:4096

that is the letter L by the way and not the number one. I have win2k as well and there is a share.exe file in there as well.

Thank you, but I understand that Share was done away with after Win95b, and I'm not sure if WinNt4.0 has it or not.

Any other ideas?

Create a shortcut to the program and run it through a dos window. When the dos based program starts it should run. If not add the share program to the environment settings in my computer|properties.
