I have been running an old version of quick basic on my office PC (Windows
XP) and my laptop (Vista). In XP I haven't had any problems and in Vista
only just noticed a problem some of the time. I run these via a shortcut
like the following with varying startup directories.
On the Vista machine when I do this sometimes things start out ok until I
try to open a basic program to run and I get the message "ntvdm.exe has
stopped working", then things just close down. The strange thing is that it
doesn't happen with some of the startup directories but does with some. I
went on line and found a bunch of hits, tried what I could find as
suggestions, but nothing helped.
Has anyone seen this and or have suggestions?
