SideKick - help wanted for DOS version

  DocP 12:36 12 Dec 05

I still use Borland's Sidekick (version 1.56A) as an editor to maintain some old dBase programs - but it's stopped working. It is very useful, as it's a TSR

Anyone out there prepared to make contact to help?

I can invoke the TSR under DOS, but the hot-key combination to enter the editor has stopped working - the menu flashes past briefly but won't stay on-screen for me to select an option.

I guess it's to do with timings and interrupts.

It used to work fine. Am using XP, and most of my old DOS programs still work.

You can contact me on pcvr -at-

Many thanks
