Theres a 16 bit program which ALWAYS I used for years. Now my system had winsock to get me back online, my system hasn't been the same.
So I shared an 16 bit application which wouuldnt work on my computer at this time; and I shared on the other computer, but it still doesn't work. Both computers have XP AND share the same network. Why cant I run it?
Can you give an ideas what may be preventing the program from running?
Faithfully,
Classy

Not all programs like being run across a network. Copy it locally to your computer.

Not all 16-bit programs work in Windows either. Some break under Service Pack 2.

I guess I will have to use it from my other computer which has SP2 XP.
Maybe its time to buy an more up to date rolex file. If you know of any names of programs which resembles a rolex file, please tell me.
OK, Thank you.
