I have no problem to compile them. But - I agree that some programs don't
work OK. Some detects diskette drive B even if You don't have it, some
returns a bit confused list of drives (I have realized, that for example Norton
Commander maybe sometimes creates a virtual disk B for copying from diskette
to diskette and running Your program from NC will detect drive B). In my unit
NGTVIEW for creating text GUI I have leaved the way of
list of drives, because I haven't found working routine without direct testing of

But I have test them under WinNT and maybe some problems became from this
reason :-) (more mapped drives etc.).

Have a nice day
