Need executable program (Y2k?) converter

oracletwooracletwo Posts: 14Member
Help! I need a program that converts an executable so that it runs on computers that the executable won't normally run on. I don't recall the name of the small conversion program but I think it corrects a Y2k problem or something like that. It's used by running the conversion program, then typing in the name of the executable to be converted. Does anyone know what I'm talking about? Thanks.

    I think what you want is TPPATCH, which fixes the runtime 200 error in Turbo Pascal. Turbo Pascal programs which use the CRT unit will crash with RUNTIME ERROR 200 when run on machines faster than about 200 MHz. Google "TPPATCH" to find downloads of TPPATCH.EXE

    I recently downloaded a program called Patch.exe which is similar to TPPatch.exe except that Patch.exe changes my compiler while TPPatch.exe changes individual files, if I understand it correctly. The problem I had was indeed a computer speed issue. I had an older clone computer that I wanted make use of.

    I'm a newbie on this forum. It seems like a nice one. I haven't done any Pascal programming in a long time but lately I've been fooling around with it, hoping to get some ideas about something neat to do.
    Thanks again. My programs are running fine on both my computers.
