New report I have an installation of NV1 working completely off a USB Stick. No workarounds. Click on the desktop icon and away you go. A breakthrough. What has happened is that the new DOS version has broken away from games. The new variation is vdos.exe. And even a later vdosplus.exe. I’m using the vdos.exe because it does everything for my NV. And on Win 10, 64bit.
Anyone else, so we can exchange info.
Figured it out. Something overlooked. A bad nv.exe file. So, now we are moving along to the next propblem, but getting better. Have to figure out how to get the cursor to show.
Later. The cursor is working because it moves the page up and down. Is there some way to change the cursor code in the Odds & Ends outside of it?
Later again. maybe the cursor is okay, perhaps the color of the cursor is what needs changing.
Anyone with ideas?
Much later: Looks like I will have to bring my notebook with me to use NV Dosbox because it works there but not on the thumb.
That doesn’t work because when I turn off my fkeys on Win8 they don’t work in NV. I think the best thing is to get Win 8 32 bits and forget Dosbox.
that’s what I had. What that does is bring up the NV shell. When I click on Books, an error comes up and says It can’t find nvc.exe. Thta’s strange in one way because my Dosbox autoexec file final line is f:dosprogsnvnv.exe
Printing has always been handled by “prnt.” It’s what I use on another computer running Win7. Have used it for 5-6 years. If you need it, email me at email@example.com and I’ll send it. It’s freeware. I couln’t find the link using Goggle.
Got NV1 running.DOSBox 7.4 has a configuration file. With a bit of tinkering, it loads and runs. I’m going to run the books a bit longer as a test to see if any gliches appear, but, so far, none.
Getting there. Before I start, please don’t tell me to get NV2. I have it and don’t like it. My NV1 will now run with DosBox in Win8 64bit. My problem is that the curser shows on the home page and menus but does not show in the books.
Cam anyone guide me to an answer?
Found out how to address it, but unfortunately, it’s back to the 64 bit error.In other words, Win 8 runs DOS easily, but not 32bit. This may be a novice question, but is there software that converts 32 bit programs to 64bit?
I played around with Win8 more and I can get a Dos window to appear. Win8, and I don’t know why this is this way, but the program folder is two folders; one is Programs and one is Programs (x86) which seems to handle the “older” stuff. I put NV1 in the x86 folder but I can’t figure out how to address it. More later.
I spent an hour yesterday in two chat sessions about this with Microsoft and the bottom line was, “Not our problem. Get with NewViews.” My new computer is 64 bit. All I wanted to know was how to get NewViews to work, like can I divide my hard drive into two partitions and place MS XP in it? Any help. Got nothing. What gets me is that accounting is “black and white.” Dos is “black and white.” We DOS NV1 users, and I have been with NV since they started, just want to stay with “black and white.” Why doesn’t some NV authorized agent update NV1 under license and sell it? Dosen’t look like Q.W. page is interested.
Thanks. Sorry for the delay. Converted to Windows 7 and it didn’t go well. I had Vista Ultimate and Win 7 didn’t like it.
I’ll give your suggestion a try and let you know.
I apologize for overlooking your answer. Here is the setup. Each “state” is a report. Then, within each state are the donor accounts in the state in total only posting..
Where I’m trying now is to simply create a read only, atuorun CD of the books so that our leaders across the country can decide what they want to review.I just entered a new question on the forum today.
Again, I apologize for the overlook. I don’t like having someone respond for nothing. Not my nature.
Thanks. Perhaps it would be useful to list the “Top 10.” Then let everyone make up their own mind which to choose. I have used two so far, both acceptable…but not quite.
Best would be using the capitalist approach, select the best one and buy or license the code. Then have software clean it up for NV. May be less expensive in the long run than starting from “time zero.” Then watch NV1 fly off your shelves.
My opinion, of course.
I’m not mad at anyone, but I wish QW would listen about this problem. I have been using NV1, almost since NV started. I have NV1 on a separate hard drive on my computer dedicated to just NV1…nothing else. When I purchased my current computer, and the ones before it, the NV hard drive was placed in it. I don’t want my accounting data anywhere near the Internet. NV1 is fantastic software.
Bookkeeping is a “black and white” process. It’s a numbers process that is either a debit or credit. You don’t need “bells and whistles.” Where the fancy stuff comes in is with reports. I have been printing dos to usb using Prnt 1.2.2. Not fancy and slow. I cannot understand why QW doesn’t create a “bridge” application that takes the NV1 data and sends it to print-report software with the bells and whistles.
And sell it!
I agree. I have been using NV for 15 years and happy with the “black and white” edition. I know that Q.W. Page wants to sell the Windows version, but they owe it out of a sense of corporate pride to their customers to issue a USB print file.
The DOS2USB software does good with me except for one hangup. On any account line just before an underline, that account number moves out one column to the right when printed. I tried all different print codes but it does it every time. Any ideas?
