    Running DOS Application on WINDOWS XP

    Locked

    by vsharma32 ·

    Hi,

    I am trying to run a MS-DOS application (called tally) under Windows XP over NTFS filesystem; I am unable to do so as it returns the following error message:
    Tally Abnormal Completion
    Status: 3
    Insufficient Files provided by DOS
    Internal error

    I have used NTVDM even with configuration for DOS likes Files, Stacks, DOS in high UMB in CONFIG.NT.

    I have maintained it in the same folder as the above application and directed the shortcut to utlise the CONFIG.NT and AUTOEXEC.NT by configuring the ADVANCE option provided in PROGRAM Tab of the PROPERTIES of the shortcut.

    Please help

      Ran into a simular problem. Our fix was in the config.nt in the system32 directory chang the files= number to 99. Worked like a charm for us.

      Couldnt agree more with swampdoc. If u have put all compatibility in the properties of the .exe file 2 DOS. then this is the way 2 fix it.
