Is your version a dos program? You're asking in the dos forum but you say it's an XP program.

Dataease has versions for DOS and for Windows. Which version are you trying to run? If it's the DOS version (very old) it will probably not run on a 64-bit system. If that's the case, I would recommend either using a VM or installing DOS-Box.

If you have the Windows version, it should be compatible with Windows 7. I don't think they released a version specifically for Windows XP.

Also, typing in ALL CAPS is considered shouting and rude, so in future, you may want to re-think that. :)

Thanks.. sorry about the caps...
DataEase was originally a dos base program but as I understand it they revised it for this customer I think in 2003 to be compatible with windows 2000 and later XP. I have been able to install it on vista, but not on w7. It comes up with a error of missing dll file.
I am not familiar with DosBox.
I have looked on their web page for assistance, but didnt find the answers that I needed. I am a beginner on this so.. skill is limited I am sorry to say

Dosbox is a program that runs in windows but simulates dos for older software.

Another method would be to try installing and running it under XP mode in windows 7:

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/...

Or you say it's asking for a dll file. You can either download and copy that file to where it's expected or install software that already contains the dll file thus installing the file that way.

It doesn't seem like that would matter but I don't know how it was modified in the first place. If it worked with XP that probably was XP 32 bit whereas you have windows 7 64 bit. I'd think the 32/64 bit would be the main problem. But that might not matter with the original dos version running in dosbox as the link from mmcconaghy explains.

Keep us updated with your progress.
