I am currently using at a test machine a k6/2 cpu @400mhz, does it also crash with error200 due to it's speed on tp7 progs?
if it does, I am gonna replace it with a 200mmx cpu...

My old PII 333 would get Runtime Error 200, but not all the time. Sometimes when I got Runtime Error 200, I could run the program again immediately afterwards and it would run perfectly.

Replacing your CPU seems overkill anyway; programs that produce this error can easily be patched.

Get the patchers for both TP and C programs and forget about runtime error 200. Do not discard that CPU yet. I think they are somewhere in the forum.

It's really just a matter of replacing a specific hex string with another. XVI32 (a darn nice hex editor) can do it:

I wasn't aware it could happen with C programs, though.

I use tppatch. It's on forum. Maybe the executable you are trying to patch is packed (LZEXE, etc). You may need to unpack it first. If you are having problems patching something, send me a pm. I could take a look if you want.
