You may want to look into the program mkcompat.exe.  It comes with Win95
and you should find it in your Windows/System folder or just type
"mkcompat" in the run command.  The idea is that it will make Windows 3.1
programs compatable with Windows95.  I used it on Oligo per the developers
instructions and had no problems.  Unfortunately I am unable to provide you
with specifics on what each setting in the program will do but you may want
to check Microsoft's site for more info.

I have been using Gene Runner v 3.02 for a few years and I have got used
to it, finding it very useful for my needs. However, it is a 16 bit
application, at it uses an awkward file manager which cannot recognize
long file names. Everything else works fine under win95, but this
limitation on filenames length makes if a tittle of a pain when handling
big sequence libraries.
The question is, anybody knows of an upgrade for win 95? (don't think so
because the company doesn't seem to exist any more), or is there an easy
way to make this application use a long name-compatible file manager?. I
have tried other packages, but most of them are too complicated, too
simple or too expensive for what I need. I haven't found a good
equivalent of Generunner's oligo analysis menu.
