Does Paradox for DOS run on Vista?


Yes, but you must use the compatibility mode.

Rajendraps.. Mike wasn't referring to a 'compatible' version of Paradox DOS.. he meant that you should use the Windows Compatibility Mode feature when using Paradox DOS with Vista.. I have not used Vista myself, but other Paradox folk that I know have used Vista, have reported that 4.0 and 4.5 DOS run fine with Vista without having to use the Compatibility Mode feature..

your mileage may vary, but I'd really like to hear from you if you have any Vista issues other than the fact that "full screen" isn't available..

Hi Mike

A question.

Does Paradox 7 work on Windows 7?

Thank you very much.

I stopped using Paradox 7 several years ago. I had problems with strange behavior with buttons disappearing and such. Paradox 7 might work on Windows 7, but I recommend you upgrade to Paradox 9, 10, or 11.
