Never knew there was something like WS2000, at first I thought it would be some last hybrid DOS/Windows version succeeding WS7. But it is a version between WS3 and WS4. Confusing version number and Crtl+Q,N functionality. Tested WS4 (Split line) and WS7 (Check word), both worked fine. In both version a Quick menu is displayed with second key descriptions.
“one or more files is open” is a WS2000 message, not the “You cannot exit this way” - “One or more files are open!” popup of vDos?
Do other Ctrl+ key combinations work correctly, and if it is a WS2000 message, any (other) key combination that should actually invokes this?
Tested this with a variety of control +2 keys. In every instance, the program locks up, and I have to use device manager to kill it.
I'll do some more work on this.
Does VDOS have to be in the c:\vDos directory. When it didn't work, I renamed the directory to VDOSNEW. But that was after it didn't work in the original directory. My VDOS has the 2015 in it and it works just fine (except for the copy keys).
Just moved the AUTOEXEC file from the old Vdos directory to the new. It executed fine. But then locked with the 2nd control key.
I haven't made any changes to the config.txt file. Could that be the issue? could this have to do with the XMEM = 4 EMS line in the config.txt file?
If you have to use task manager to end vDos, “one or more files is open” obviously is a WS2000 message…
It doesn’t matter where vDos is located.
Directives in config.txt shouldn’t be the cause, though “EMS = 4 EMS” is not valid in vDos 2018.05.01.
If some TSR is loaded before WS2000 is started, disable that temporary by REM. You can also check if you have the latest release (dated May 30), if not, download vDosSetup once more to install vDos. The initial release didn’t foresee a program loaded in EMS would eventually also locate its stack there.
