I don't know if it will be of any help, but I can link DOS app's under XP
without any problems from within IDE and from DOS box without any problems
with BC 5.02, all valid patches applied. I do not have any ".pif" files in
Windows root directory besides _defualt.pif (*) and I have not altered
"config.nt" or "autoexec.nt" files in "Windows\System32" directory. Anyhow,
I have attached all files zipped in "borland.public.attachments" newsgroup
if they will be of any help.
