Win XP & Classic V13 Set-Up Questions.

Win XP & Classic V13 Set-Up Questions.

Win XP & Classic V13 Set-Up Questions.

Looking for help to cure a RECOVER problem.  I've installed V13 on a new machine with Windows XP.  Everything went well during install and RESTORE of data from old system.  The problem is in the AP module.  The first time I tried to RECOVER the system hung-up.  I was able to CTRL+ALT+DEL to END TASK.  I tried the process again.  It worked.   All other RECOVER on other modules worked fine.  Doing some other troubleshooting, I tried the RECOVER again on AP and it hung again.  Long story short, it's intermittant.  If I try the process again it will succeed.  It's about a 1 in 3 or 1 in 2 chance it will work.

I don't want to proceed with commissioning this machine until I find a solution to this problem.  I don't think it is the data as it will RECOVER maybe even 2 times in a row.  I don't think it is the hardware, it's working so well on other tests.  

Does XP use the AUTOEXEC.BAT and CONFIG.SYS?  I saw on another forum that XP uses a CONFIG.NT instead of SYS.  What are the suggested parameters for the CONFIG?  Are there any other set-up suggestions for XP and Version 13?

Thanks in advance.
