I'm trying to use a 16-bit program (3-D morphometrics visualizer called Morpheus
) that I have run under WinXP Pro Sp-2 successfully in the past (August 2004) on the very notebook that I am writing on right now. It's always worked flawlessly but in the intervening years something has gone awry and I can no longer click anywhere on the main menu bar (File/Edit/View, etc.) without the program shutting down. The error message (I had to record the crash so that I could isolate the frame to read the message!) is pretty uninformative:16-bit Program under XP - woe, woe, woe is me...
I've completely removed the original installation and have reinstalled the application. I've confirmed that it works on a different XP Pro machine and have spent some fruitless hours trying to determine if I am missing an essential dll. This may very well be the case, but I'm buggered if I can figure it out!
So, my friends, I turn to the donationcoder community in hope that someone has any insight!
PS Morpheus has a command line component that still works on my machine... even from within the GUI version.
