    error running dos program (XP Pro SP2)

    I'm trying to run a PharLap compiled dos program in the dos window in XP. When I run the program I get the following error:

    abnormal program termination: stack fault
    CS:EIP=000Fh:00001373h

    The program runs on a win98 computer. Suggestions?
    Thanks!

    Windows XP is very different under the hood, and it isn't really made to run MS-DOS applications. But you can try some things:
    - Create a shortcut to the PharLap program.
    - Right-click the shortcut and select Properties.
    - In the Memory tab of the Properties window, you can adjust the extended/expanded memory settings, if the program needs them.
    - In the Screen tab, you can specify whether the program will be run in a window or full-screen. The latter is safer for a DOS program.
    - In the Compatibility tab, you can make the program run in Windows 95 or Windows 98 mode. Experiment with the settings.
    See if you can run the program from the shortcut.

    I tried all of the combinations and it didn't work. I'll just have to walk down the hall and use the old clunker for this program.
    Thanks for everyone's help.
