Help with Asset 2000 Software

By mindcrazy ·
I have posted this here because I have had no results in the support section for Windows. We are upgrading a system at our site with Windows 2000. I am currently
attempting to load a Dos based program for the client called Asset 2000. The
software requires buffers to be set at 15 in the config.sys file in order to
run. When I execute the program I receive an error stating "Your Config.sys
has Buffers=0 Asset requires 15 or more. Change it to the correct number,
re-boot and try again."I have edited the config.sys, and config.nt to
reflect the buffers. I then proceeded to edit the pif settings to point to
either of the two system files. I still receive the error. The program runs
a batch file to execute. I have also edited that file to reflect the buffers
with no avail. If anyone has encountered a similar issue with Windows 2000
and a Dos based program or experience with the Asset 2000 software help
would be appreciated.

Help with Asset 2000 Software

Settings such as FILES, BUFFERS, TEMP, PATH, etc. need to be stored in the Environment Variables by a user with administrative rights to the machine in question. User environment variables can be added, changed or deleted from Control Panel. Thereis no need to reboot after making any of these changes. Changes take effect immediately after exiting the System dialog box.

See Microsoft article Q100843 on Environment Variables in Windows NT (or Windows 2000):

Good luck,

Thank you for your post. You were the only one to reply and I had several posts over the net. Your suggestion was a good one and one that I had not tried, but it still did not work. Since the manufacture stated that they would not support the software on W2K we reinstalled Win 98. Thanks for all your help.
