Question about Claris Draw (DRAWV1) for Mac
I have used Claris Draw v1.0v3 for many years but not with the Window XP OS, I cannot even get the program to start. Is there some mod to a dll or running mode that is necessary to get the app to work.
Right click on the Claris Draw program icon and open properties box. Then select "Compatibility" tab.
Under Compatibilty tab, check "Run this Program in compatability mode for:"
Select Windows 98/ Windows ME option from drop down menue.
Make sure "Claris" folder is in C:\Windows
Now do following whenever you thereafter want to run Claris Draw:
Try to open the Claris Draw program and you should get message saying it can't find Claris directory.
In the message box, browse down to Claris directory and double left click it.
Then left click on any file in the Claris directory window.
Now left click on the Claris directory again, but hold the left mouse button down.
The OK button should stay lit while you are holding the left mouse button down.
While still holding the left mouse button down, press the "Enter" key on your keyboard.
Claris draw should now run.
This nutty start up procedure seems a little complated, but once you get the hang of it, it takes only a few seconds to do it.

I found that Draw runs on XP but I have to tell it each time it opens where to find the CLARIS folder, and when it does run it won't respond to the OPEN menu item. I can still open files though by clicking on the file to open, but it's pretty inconvenient. Looks like I'm going to have to run the program on my old pre-XP windows machine.
