Article: Q57797 Product(s): See article Version(s): 7.00 Operating System(s): MS-DOS Keyword(s): ENDUSER | SR# S900112-81 | mspl13_basic Last Modified: 1-AUG-1990 Microsoft BASIC Professional Development System (PDS) version 7.00 has not been fully tested under nor is it guaranteed to run under any version of Novell NetWare. Below are some confirmed and unconfirmed cases of problems using BASIC PDS 7.00 programs with Novell NetWare. Confirmed QBX.EXE Hanging Report -------------------------------- 1. Microsoft Product Support Services performed one test that showed that QBX.EXE may hang under Novell Advanced NetWare version 2.15 revision C. This test was performed on an IBM AT with a 16-bit Ungermann Bass network card. The test was run on a nondedicated Novell server. The QBX.EXE editor screen comes up, but at this point, the machine hangs and requires a cold reboot. This information applies to the QBX.EXE editor that comes with Microsoft BASIC Professional Development System (PDS) version 7.00 for MS-DOS. Unconfirmed QBX.EXE Hanging Reports ----------------------------------- 1. A customer reported that QBX.EXE can hang under the following configuration: COMPAQ 386/20 or ALR 386/33 computer Version 2.15 Novell Advanced NetWare Micom Interland board NI52100TP-8 Microsoft Mouse 7.00 When the customer booted without the Novell drivers, or with the Novell drivers and without the Microsoft Mouse 7.00 driver, QBX.EXE worked correctly without hanging. Microsoft has not confirmed this information. 2. A customer reported that QBX.EXE can hang under the following configuration: IBM PS/2 Model 50z computer Version 2.15 revision C Novell SFT network 3. A customer reported that a BASIC PDS 7.00 program using the OPEN COM statement may hang on a workstation connected to Novell Advanced NetWare version 2.15 revision A. When a Quarterdeck QEMM version 5.00 expanded memory driver was installed, the machine would not hang, but instead, QEMM would return an "Exception 12" error. When the software for the Novell Network was removed, the computer would not hang, nor would it generate an Exception 12 error with the QEMM driver loaded. Microsoft has not confirmed this problem. The customer reported the problem on the following configuration: Dell System 310 Novell Advanced NetWare version 2.15 revision A DOS version 3.30 80387 math coprocessor 4 MB extended memory Video Seven VGA video card Phoenix 80386 ROM BIOS Plus version 1.10 A05 Western Digital EtherCard Plus 16, or 3Com EtherLink card 4.
