Solomon III version 7.0 is an accounting program by TLB. When you run
the start-up file SOLOMON.INI at the command prompt, your computer may
stop responding (hang).
Editing the SOLOMON.INI file should make Solomon III compatible with MS-DOS
To use Solomon III with MS-DOS 5.0, you must delete two lines in the
SOLOMON.INI file. The following procedure uses MS-DOS Editor to modify
the SOLOMON.INI file. Editor is an MS-DOS 5.0 feature; with earlier
versions of MS-DOS, use the Edlin editor.
• Change to the \ACCT\PROG directory;
• From the command prompt, type the following and press ENTER:
• Delete line #6, which starts with "COMPVERS", and delete line #7,
which starts with "IF ERROR LEVEL...". Save the edited file, and
exit MS-DOS Editor. Retry executing the SOLOMON.INI file.
NOTE: Solomon III version 7.1 is compatible with MS-DOS 5.0.
