    DBase crashing (XP-SP1)

    We're having some bizarre episodes of XP just losing the ability to hold or launch Dbase5. You launch it from the DOS prompt and it just flashes, then automatically crashes the window. I don't know how, but sometimes, after an undetermined length of time, the functionality will return. Has anyone else had any similar experiences? <img src=/S/confused.gif border=0 alt=confused width=15 height=20>

    In the DOS window we have 98-ME and 2000 as compatibility mode settings. Is there somewhere else I could check this?
    I'm attaching a print of the dump. Perhaps that will help.

    Are you using 98/me compatibility mode? Dbase5 is so old that may work the best.

    Actually, we're using DBase 4, so it's probably even uglier.
    Yes, I tried that setting. No go.
    More users are losing this functionality ( 1 more this morning)

    Well, I'm at my limit on Dbase support. You could try this Google search for Dbase forum and see if you can get a good answer.
