Yes, there is I think. Get Tree to make the program compatabe with Windows
2K, XP, et al.   DOS is history. 
I could not operate the Stew because of the problems I had when I needed to
upgrade to Win 2000. I am not going to go to extreme measures to make this
program work as I upgrade to newer Windows operating systems. Look for old
laptops with Win 95 ? never happen......
