Those Ctrl key combinations do work in other Windows programs? What if you test them with SCODE.COM?
The CTRL key combinations work everywhere else, just not in the editor so it must be the editor program itself that is doing something funny. I don't know why other CTRL combinations work in the same editor though!?! I have been also using the editor for years in 32 bit Windows running NTDVM with no problem. I have attached the editor exe to this post just in case you have any other ideas. Just load it up and access all the menus by pressing F9.
I ran BW, and the Ctrl key combinations worked just fine. What version of vDos do you use, is there perhaps any TSR program loaded before BW?
You are dead right, the are working correctly in vDos. I have Dos application which is strictly 8.3 filenames but I have found that using UNC paths I can get a total of 64 character for the combined path & filename which I really need. As I also have a deep directory structure a I have to put shares on the deeper levels of the directories so the whole path\filename fits in 64 chars. Unfortunately this doesn't work under vDos but it does work in vDosPlus. I could map all the shares/directory paths to a drive letter under vDos. I will try that soon, I just have to modify my code it do that where vDosPlus works off the bat. vDosPlus must be messing around with the keybaord a bit which I have read in the docs. The good thing is a can use vDos for my source code editing and VDosPlus to run the app. Problem solved. :-) Thanks for your help.
