c++.idde - Dos Application Window

reply "Rajiv Bhagwat" <dataflow vsnl.com> writes:
The 16 bit IDDE (SCWMN16.EXE) keeps on saying "Cannot create DOS application
window" again & again: on loading a project, on finishing the compilation,
on running a program. It also does not allow starting of debugging due to
this error.

As I usually use makefiles only, I had not noticed whether this is happening
for CD832 only, or was present for earlier versions.

hi It remind me something but i don't remember how i turned around this. Do you want to try something ? download the DOSBOX.EXE and the DOSBOX link attached and put them in DM\BIN !! Let or Set DOSBOX.EXE read only !! now try, there is a chance it works now: no garantee. good luck roland note 1: if there is a virus in the DOSBOX.EXE i send, it is dated before 1999 and wasn't already detected .. note 2: unable to atach DOSBOX.PIF: my #~& Netscape transform it in DOSBOX.EXE I think the properties are important. If it does not work try to change your DOSBOX.EXE properties note 3: i work on Win 98

Yes, this problem occurs only with Win98, I have verified that there is no
problem with XP. But under XP, IDDE can't debug 16 bit DOS/X apps.
I have the same DOSBOX.EXE file. Changing it to 'read-only' and trying out
different parameters for its PIF did not work.
BTW, it opens a dos app (which shows SCWRMVDD.EXE) and that remains open
throughout. Closing it has no effect.
Anything else to try?

i don't remember who is the Dos Application Windows program. Can be SCWRMVDD.EXE not DOSBOX.EXE, sorry.

- try VGA mode ? (you have to destroy your superb super 3D Video Card on the control panel and prevent Windows from reinstalling it when restarting .. ) - try to debug a text only program ? - if you can open the debug application Windows set it full screen (Alt-Return) and retry ? That is kind of thing i could have done in the same situation. no garanties, may be silly sugestions .. roland
