I am trying to run WHATIF under a windows 98 SE environment using Exceed 6.2
as an interface. Windows and Exceed have latest updates according to
vendor's web sites.
Both programs reside on the same computer.
Exceed is in c:\program files\exceed
Whatif is in c:\whatif
Both programs report successful install.
Exceed is functioning with respect to running remote hosts.
Setting exceed to local host:
If I run DO_WHATIF
the program appears to start, but stays within a DOS window ...
execution terminates with a c:> WHATIF prompt, but also
has the following error messages directly above the prompt
c-inittext could not open message file '/dbdata/messages.txt
possible configuration error in DO_WHATIF.com, whatif.fig or configf1.fig
If I attempt to run Whatif
I get the error message:
cannot find cygwin1.dll
The files that WHATIF cannot find are present in default installed
I have tried adding c:\whatif and c:\whatif\cgyusr to the path command in
the autoexec.bat file and it has had no effect.
There appears to be a problem in getting WHATIF to export its output to
(Display has been set to localhost by vendor install config files)
Any thoughts on configuring WHATIF to find cgywin1.dll ? and to run via
Exceed under Windows98?
