I had the same problem with my Windows XP machine, John. I
ended up running my K6STI programs on my spare Windows 98
machine as that was the easiest fix for me. Another possible
solution that TRlog users have developed is to turn a USB Thumb
Drive into a bootable DOS drive, and then boot the Windows XP
machine into DOS from the Thumb Drive. I haven't tried it, but
seems like it should work. I think you can find details in the TRlog
archives at contesting.com.
