I recently found some older sourcecodes that I wrote back in the good old DOS-days - I even found my Borland Pascal and tried to install it but I keep getting this error: Too many subdirectories and the installation breaks. I've tried this under XP (ok, XP isn't really nice to DOS programs) so then I tried an installation under MS-DOS (using Virtual PC by Connectix) and I get the same thing. Any ideas what's causing this and how it can be fixed ?
This is what I tried under Virtual PC: I found a backup of my BP-Directory and simply copied it to the virtual hd - I then added c:pin to the path so I could just start it
I then found a backup of my BP-Directory and added bpin to the path. I can start the IDE just fine under Virtual PC - but as soon as I try to compile something I get "Internal Error 216 at [address:here]" and that's it. Does anyone know a way how I can run BP in a nice 'sandbox' environment like Virtual PC or VMWare ?
Thanks for your help
