I am trying to get an old scientific/research program called ASYST by Software Technologies, INC. (Macmillan Software Company) to function in a new windows 7 computer for a research technician. I used DOSBox and the program seems to run, but is having an issue with one of its commands. It uses a DIR command similar to DOS itself, but when using this command within the ASYST program it displays "0 File(s), 0 bytes used" when it should show the files in the directory. I am able to see the files in a regular DOS window using the DOS DIR command, and I am also able to see the files doing a DIR command from within DOSBox after mounting the drive (but prior to launching the ASYST program).
I have a suspicion that the ASYST program is having trouble seeing files on a mounted drive. Is there some configuration I am missing? I looked through the help files, and FAQ's but I have not found information to help in the matter. Any ideas?
