Specs: windows xp, amd dual core 4gb ram
I have a new computer with dual cor amd and 4 gb ram
with a 500 g hard drive in a caddy running xp
professional with sp2 i run an older program called
concad which ran fine on my old pc with the same
opperating system but now when i click on the exe I get
the system 32/cmd pop up then iy reverts back to the
previous screen. The program is no longer supported

Did you just copy or re-install your legacy application?

If it is a Win 9X program to copy doesn't suffice as an install is required. If instead that is a DOS application it should work under the new system.

Which environment do you run the application in WMware under?

Try downloading Abbund first: http://download.cnet.com/ABBUND-Tim...

You need Abbund installed, before you can use the "extended" application conCAD: http://www.abbund.com/en/products/c...

Thanks for the reply but this is not the same program it has the same name but the one i use is a conservatory drawing program so I dont think this will help but perhaps you know what this abbund does is it only for the concad you have indicated ? Thanks Les

Oh

No the above is only for Abbund :(

Do you happen to have a website address for your concad application?
Or some (any) info online

Like I said it is no longer supported so there is no web site
if you look for this below in google it shows you what the
program does the only other thing I could do is zip it up
and send it to you Regards Les

I didn't check the PDF but I did check that council site
If you right click on any one of those DOS files and check properties, oe even checkout any text file in the program folder, does it give you their home site?

The council site is where you apply for planning
permission i just googled it & it just came up with the the
planning application for someones conservatory I just
wanted to show you that it was not the same as the
concad you looked at . we bought the proram in 96 and
they did not have a web site,the owner was a bit of a
walter Mitty and tried making money out of lots of ideas
(one being a diet of rice ) but I am unsure what you
want me to do with the dos files in the folder as none
give details if you right click am I not understanding you
properley? Regards Les

A lot has changed in 14 years, including Windows98 up to the current Windows7

I think its best you find an alternative updated program
Hec, I'd say there are likely better free ones out there (do note I know nothing of the DOS program itself)

My advice: If you like or need such a program, please purchase one (which includes good reputable support)

Thanks very much for your help I have a later windows
based program that does the same job however the
reason I need the dos one working it has all of my
previous orders so when i need to find replacement units I
need to use this program or I would not bother to get it
going. Like I said it does run in vmware but the window in
vmware is small and the mouse is erratic in the program
also the f buttons do not work all of the time. thank you for
your suggestions Regards Les
