I cannot do lots of things on my puter as it says it is not dos compatible? I
have xp professional ....I tried installing a 3 disk (floppies) - MS-DOS
Serries 6.2 and got this message: A:\Setup.exe
C:\progra~\Symantec\S32EVNT1.DLL an installableDriver
failed DLL installation. Close program to terminate.
I have games and other CD-Roms that will not play cause it says without Dos
no go. This I am ver confused on and if anyone out there could please steer
me in the right direction I would appreciate it very much. Thanks.
