WIN 2K colors wrong in DOS box

By gbhall ·
When running a DOS program in Win2K (actually Foxpro 2.6, but any Dos program is affected), I find that the screen colors are "as normal" when run as a full-screen session, but when the session is NOT full-screen, the colors all change to something much duller and generally unusable, although apparently trying to be similar. Is there any cure for this nonesense?

Sorry no help! This solution only affects programs which do not have 'their own' colors. Foxpro for instance has it's own sets of color choices. The problem is that Win2K is arrogantly mapping these colors to it's own versions, and they are not too close at all !
