Re: MS-DOS 7 vs 6 - Are there incompatibilities to know about?

in DOS
Hm, not sure. I vaguely remember VSHARE from WfW 3.11. The same problem applies to VSHARE because it doesn't work on MS-DOS 7.1 due to kernel incompatibility according to the W3XSTART readme, that's one of the reasons why I don't recommend Windows 3.x in that case. Finding an implementation of …

Only problems are applications that are coded to check for dos7.1 and stop running like creative CTCM,CTCU (because they think you are running it from win9x). SETVER (included on a normal Windows 9x installation) can be used to get around the version check of several programs and for CTCM/CTCU …
