If the new version MIGHT work, that is better than the current version NOT
WORKING AT ALL.
I can understand you not wanting to give it out, and that was fine since we
had an Emerald that ran...now I can't run your current "released" version
You say that the new version is not an option. WHAT IS MY OPTION? We paid
for this software and we expect to get support for it. When it's not
functioning AT ALL on a machine, I'd call that a need for support.
So, let's try going to the VB5.0 directory as you suggested...well, guess
what, I don't have VB! I have FoxPro!
