Hi all - I'm in a bit of a bind. Our software has just been released in
Windows (a big move from DOS). The new manual is all Windows, and nearly
all of our boxes now run Windows NT 4. However, we have decided to maintain
the DOS version, and are releasing an upgrade soon. I can run the software
from the command prompt from NT. I use Paint Shop Pro for Windows captures,
but when I run full-window in the command prompt environment, PSP won't

Now, I realize that a solution would be to install DOS and do a dual boot,
but we think that's overkill to get screen captures. I know nothing about
pure DOS screen capture utilities, but does anyone know of ones that will
work in the NT command prompt environment?

TIA, Ginna
