#1 I need to stop playing with TR on other machines. Had some
lunchtime to play.
#2 I don't plan on contesting with an NT machine, but maybe Win 95
users can help. I am still on Win 3.1 at home on the 486. So the
answer to this problem is not worth much time, only if you know the
answer off the top of your head.
When booting up the NT machine into DOS (6.22 on the machine) and
running TR from a contest subdirectory, it runs TR fine but dumps out
when the LOGCFG.DAT can't find my custom add on (KI6X.CFG) in the
INPUT CONFIG FILE = statement. Says can't find file. Path to LOG is
in AUTOEXEC.BAT (finds TR.EXE fine), and I have the complete path
spelled out in the statement (tried it just with the filename). Works
fine on my home machine that way. Launches fine from an NT Command
Prompt, but being in NT the CW speed is off (slow by a few WPM) but
does seem to be smooth. I only use the simulator on this machine
(better than Freecell/Solitare) and not sure what other problems may
show up running in NT.
Still playing with the 286 problem. I found version 5.93 works better
than the newer versions on a 286 (at least the one machine I have
tried it on).
