    Hi,

    I have a small application running in Windows NT 16 bit DOS emulation
    shell COMMAND.COM

    If I take it to run on Windows XP COMMAND.COM, could there by any
    issues/problems?

    Any inputs would be helpful.

    TIA.

  2. If the program does any direct hardware calls, then probably won't work.
    However, the best thing to do is *try* it. Also look at and read
    about the Compatibilty Wizard.

  3. Odds are it will work. *Try it*. Use in COMMAND.COM as you propose,
    but also try it in the CMD.EXE command prompt (which is the standard on
    for XP).

    If the program does any direct hardware calls, then probably won't work
    as XP doesn't permit this.

    Look at and read about the Compatibilty Wizard on your XP machine.
