I have a lot of programs that I wrote in the programing

Customer Question
I have a lot of...
I have a lot of programs that I wrote in the Euphoria programing language. They all work with my Windows 7 Premium desktop. I bought a new Windows 7 Professional laptop and a lot of the programs don't work. Mostly the DOS programs. Things like xcopy don't work. I see that both Premium and professional use DOS Version 6.1.7.7601. So I don't get it.

Hello,
I am Pete, and I'll be happy to assist with your question today.
If your old Windows 7 was 32 bit and the new Windows 7 Pro laptop is 64 bit then that would explain why some of the programs are not working.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
