Hi, I was having some Programs D

Hi, I was having some Programs D

Hi, I was having some Programs D

(OP)
Hi,

I was having some Programs DOS based prepared by me in around 2000 in Clipper5. This was working very nicely in Window XP and Window 7, but couldn't open or update in the current Windows.

Please let me know whether anybody can help me by giving the direct installation software of latest version of Clipper5.3 compatible to Window10 (64bits) along with the procedure for Installation and Compilation to Open/ Update/ Compile/ Run the available Programs with me.

Regards,
K M Mathew

RE: Hi, I was having some Programs D

You can use DOSBox or D-Fend Reloaded to emulate DOS and run your current program.

RE: Hi, I was having some Programs D

Greg is right, Clipper is 16-bit and you need something like DosBox to run it now.

Regards

RE: Hi, I was having some Programs D

I can say that my own experience with xBase++ is that it is not quite 100% compatible, close but no cigar.

I am talking about a version from 2003 though, perhaps it is better now.

The above not withstanding, xBase++ has kept a very old application going well past anything I ever expected when I wrote it in the 90s.

** edit **
Just looked at their website, they have, seemingly, dropped the 100% compatibility claim.
