I see such weekly on freecycle and we can get that old OS on ebay fast.
I'll reveal I write apps for RS232/422/485 connected gear and when this complaint is told I have to go to the shop and see what's up. One time it was some 128 megabyte ram machine running XP. That's going to hurt.
Dear friends, I'll try to be clear in my explanations.
I have a problem with a Win98 based program running under WinXP. The problem seems to be how data is spooled and then transfered to a metal bending machine. Here's the story, we have a metal bending machine, all the info (lines and curves) comes out of a computer to the metal bending machine, the metal bending machine acts as a big printer basically. The program is Win98 based but the computer controlling the bending machine kunked last week and we replaced it with a new PC running WinXP. The Win98 based program works under Win XP but when the info is sent to the bending machine, it takes forever to transfer, it's as if there is an issue on how the data is spooled. Anybody has an idea on how I can adjust this? The bending machine is an Accu-Bend CNC (channel letter bending machine).
