Landtech dos for windows - new systems (XP) need to windows
Hi, We recently upgraded our computers to XP. Currently an office system LANDTECH is running our forms through a DOS program. Landtech for windows however is also loaded... We want to upload the DOS version forms into the Landtech Word database... not sure how... if we can't do that, i need to solve the problem regarding network printing as Landtech DOS has LPT ports (which are obviously defunct on the XP machines) and we need to change the LPT ports to read the USB connection to the network

NOTE: You need your Office CD-ROM to complete this task.
Quit all currently open programs.
Start an MS-DOS prompt in a window by doing one of the following:
Microsoft Windows 95 or Windows 98:
Click Start, point to Programs, and then click MS-DOS Prompt.
Microsoft Windows Millennium Edition (Me):
Click Start, point to Programs, point to Accessories, and then click MS-DOS Prompt.
Microsoft Windows NT 4.0:
Click Start, point to Programs, and then click Command Prompt.
Microsoft Windows 2000 or Microsoft Windows XP:
Click Start, point to Programs, point to Accessories, and then click Command Prompt.
To change the directory to the location of the Vbe6.dll file, type one of the following (including the quotation marks), and then press ENTER:
CD "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Vba\Vba6"-or-
CD progra~1\Common~1\Micros~1\Vba\Vba6NOTE: This is the default directory for the Vbe6.dll file. If you installed Microsoft Office into another drive or directory, you must type its path.
To unregister the Vbe6.dll file, type the following.
In Windows 95, Windows 98, or Windows Me, type:
C:\Windows\System\REGSVR32 /U VBE6.DLLIn Windows NT 4.0, Windows 2000, or Windows XP, type:
REGSVR32 /U VBE6.DLL-or-
C:\Winnt\System32\REGSVR32 /U VBE6.DLLNOTE: This is the default directory for the Windows System directory. If you installed Windows into another directory, you must type its path.
In the MS-DOS prompt window, rename Vbe.dll to Vbe.old by typing the following and then pressing ENTER:
rename vbe6.dll vbe6.old
Quit the MS-DOS prompt window. To do this, do one of the following:
Type Exit at the command prompt, and then press ENTER. -or-
Click Close (the X in the upper-right corner of the window).
Start Microsoft Word.
On the Tools menu, point to Macro, and then click Macros.
The Windows Installer detects that the Vbe6.dll file is missing on the system, installs the file from the Office CD, and registers it again.
Try to change the File system of the hard drive to FAT. It is currently in NTFS. Mac recognizes NTFS file system as read only. You must use the disc utility and format it with a volume format of MS DOS.
By changing it to MS DOS (FAT) you can use it with Mac and PC. Readable and writable.
Recommend removing OLD DOS Operating system First. Then Install Windows XP. XP will NOT upgrade older systems unless it's Windows 98 and Fully Updated. However, can NO Longer do because Microsoft does NOT support any versions other than "2000/ME/XP/Vista".
You are still using a trial version of the office. Microsoft Windows office will not allow you to save once your trial version expires. Check to be sure you have a full version. Uninstall all former versions. Check your system clock to be sure its using a current date and time. Install the full version of windows office and you should be ok. Cheers
Well, since the new hard disk is not formatted, and there is nothing currently on it, you will not get a dos prompt or an operating system detected. What you need to do is insert your Windows XP disk, then reboot the machine. When you see the HP screen, tap the F12 key, which will take you to a boot menu. On the boot menu, choose your CD drive, then the computer will boot from the windows disk. From there, just format your disk, and install Windows.
BTW, upgrading to XP from an ME system can be very tricky because of the incompatibilities between hardware. On the systems that I have upgraded, I've disconneced/removed all but the necessary hardware, including floppy drives, modems, sound cards, etc. And if you still have problems, consider a newer/replacement video card.
Intel Pentium® III, AMD™ Duron or Athlon™ class processor or higher 128MB system RAM A 300W system power supply An AGP 2.0 (or higher) compliant motherboard 50MB of available hard disk space CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive Microsoft® Windows® 98, ME, 2000, XP, or Windows® VGA or DVI-I compatible monitor This is what you need for graphic card to work!!! Its very good card!!!
You can upgrade from your current edition of Microsoft Windows XP or
Windows 2000 to a corresponding or better edition of Windows Vista by
purchasing and installing an upgrade copy of Windows Vista. While selecting the edition of Windows Vista that's right for you, it's
important to clearly understand what hardware your PC will need to
ensure the features you want will run reliably.
