Terminal mode in an XP environment

Terminal mode in an XP environment

Terminal mode in an XP environment

I am using Visual Objects version 1.0c. I successfully convered a Clipper application to its terminal mode version on a Windows 98, later updated to Windows XP, and successfully transferred the program to a second computer on a local network, also a Windows XP. Now writing a new application on the upgraded XP works fine, but I cannot transfer it to the second XP. I loaded the VO program on computer #2, then tried writing the code but the computer froze when compitling was attempted. The error message said the program timed out when in a Windows 16 bit task.
While both computers are running WindowsXP service pack 2, I can succeed on the one computer, but not the other.  Any explanations?

RE: Terminal mode in an XP environment

Try adding "everyone" with full permissions to the folder in the root directory.  Next, make sure you can create a folder and file on computer #two from computer #1.  Then see if you need any special DDL files installed before the prigram will run.
