DOS open error 2

Hi,

I run a DOS application created using Clipper 5.01 on a Windows ME machine 
and got the error message "DOS open error 2".  Can somebody tell me what 
"DOS open error 2" is.  The same application runs on Windows XP machines 
without any problems.  Are there anything about Windows ME machines that I 
should watch out for?

Thanks,
Peter Tan

Yes - the fragility of the OS.

Hi,

I remember that ME on every startup replaces autoexec.bat and config.sys
with empty dummys, so if you set any environment thats gone.

Sorry, this in not exactly correct.
Any SET you put in autoexec is kept. Please have a look at the last
lines of this post.

Donot agree.
I work every day with: main machine=WinME and Laptop=WinXP Pro

To run Clipper applications, I find ME is perfectlly safe and stable.
For example:
- Calling external programs (pkzip, blat): works good in ME. Had
problems with other machines running XP;
- Network drives not connected at boot time: never happened with ME,
happens a lot at some sites with XP clients.

I could agree with you, if we were at "comp.os.for.general.use", but
not at "comp.lang.clipper".

I once spend a 1/2 day of quality time with that error.  After I tried to
open the file in Dbase, I found out that I was missing the .dbt file.
