Before I moved the NV 1.40c set of books over to C:NV141, I checked to ensure that Fast Access was set to off. That’s the way version 1.40c works.
When I try to load NV 1.41, the screen goes black, there is a beep and then a window pops up titled ” 16 bit MS-DOS Subsystem”. It has a message “NV The NTVDM CPU has encountered an illegal instrauction. CS:2035 IP:370a OP:0f 25 4a 3e 02 Choose ‘Close’ to terminate the application..
If I ignore or close, the window disappears
