  • 2. XP with SP2
    I have a friend who uses a DOS application that uses DBF and NTX files. I cannot tell whether or not its a clipper application but it runs Ok under XP. After installing SP2, it crashes while loading. Has anybody else experienced this and knows any fixes.
  • 3. xHarbour: Unresolved external symbol '__snprintf'
    I don't know why but at the moment I can't seem to access either or so I'm posting this here. In the October xHarbour Builder I am getting this error: Unresolved external symbol '__snprintf' Reverting the CT.LIB to the July version makes the error go away. Looking at the 0.99.1 source the previous version and the OCT version it appears that the OCT one uses two leading underscores instead of one.

  • 4. Windows XP/2000 Background Colors
    Aside from screen size which requires fudging around in Windows XP/2000 - the backgournd colors darkgray obtained with "x?/N*" is too light and brown "x?/GR" is yellowish when compared with actual colors as these appear in Windows 98/ME. I use "x?/N*" color with setblink(.f.) for my applications, so that it will blend in with the backgrounds of other windows applications (VO etc.) which may be in use interchangeably. If I link in Causeway's CWUSECLD and Clipper's CLD.LIB in my applications, then there is no difference for these two backgrounds between Windows 98/ME and Windows 2000/ME. Windows 98 uses DOS 7.x, Windows ME uses DOS 8.x while Windows 2000/XP still use DOS 5.00. It appears that Causeway's CWUSECLD and Clipper's CLD.LIB are in someway addressing the differences between DOS 5.00 and DOS higher than 5.00. However, I do not want to link these two files in distributed applications. Would someone have a workaround. Thanks in advance Hardas
  • 5. V32PGetFonts() of Vouch32.lib error?
    In the guide of Vouch32 about the function V32PGetFonts() i read the example (for Clipper 5.2 - My OS is Windows2000) ale:=V32init("ale,"c:\...\server","c:\....\temp") local aFonts:=V32PGetFonts() nfontSel:=achoice(10,10,20,70,aFonts) But if i compile by Blinker the example i don't have nothing. Why? The array is empty. Why? thank you

Blinker Executable Clipper

I use Clipper 5.2e + Blinker 5.1

Which command is correct ?

Blinker Executable Clipper F128
Blinker Executable Clipper F:128
Blinker Executable Clipper //F:128

My config.sys setting files open 40 and I use command blinker to open
files 128.
Why my application still error dos 4 ?
Which setting read first, config.sys or blinker ?

So... you tell your system that (MS-DOS) programs can be allowed to have
40 files opened simultaneously; you tell Blinker to create your program
so that it opens up to 128 files simultaneously; and you wonder that
your application runs out of file handles? Gosh, I wonder _what_ could
be the problem...

Both. They have different purposes. The files= setting in config.sys
tells your system how many files can be opened, max. The Blinker setting
tells your _program_ how many files it may try to open. If the latter
exceeds the former, the result is often, as you've seen, a somewhat
predictable failure.

   I use same Clipper and same Bliinker as you.

   The linker command I use is:


   However, my config.sys file on my Win98SE machine has: 

   You must have your config.sys file declare at least five more files than
your bliinker link script requires.

1.need Blinker for Clipper .obj

I have a clean compile and .obj file, but have problems creating .exe
with blinker (circa CA Clipper Summer '87). I'm wanting everything
(New clipper.exe, overcl87.lib, clipper.lib,...I mean everything!) but
will settle for Blinker.exe. Maybe someone can link the .obj for me?
