The best bet for getting DOS software to run with Windows 95 is to not
load the GUI at all. In people terms: When you boot the computer,
right after you see the Starting Windows 95... message, press the F8
key. You will get a menu of options. Select "Command Prompt Only" (I
think it's option 5 or 6). This will boot you directly into DOS
(unofficially version 7). Run your software from there. You lose the
pretty graphical interface, but it clears up a lotta problems.
Here's a fun fact: If a 16-bit application crashes in Windows 95,
it's possilble that it will take the system with it. So much for the
claims of being "crash-proof."
