I am trying to get some inhouse legacy software to work. This is going to be a bit wordy so hold tight.
Machine using the software: XP
Machine storing the data: Windows 7 Pro
The software is homebrewed. The user selects a vessel and needs to program a hardware key. Our program uses a batch file to call another program. Our program also passes on the vessel's name and path. Striped to the reliant part, this is what is passed to the command line:
CP32.EXE -U -E"//Font/Master Quad Account/VesselName/Vesselname.128"
With machines running Win XP and Vista this ran without a problem. With Windows 7 the CP32.exe program return a message telling me it could not find the *.128 file.
1) Since the Windows 7 machine does not touch a network that is outside of our shop I am currently sharing everything on the machine.
2) I am running the XP machine as an admin. I also created an Admin account on the windows 7 machine that has the same username/password as the XP machine.
3) From the XP machine I can get to all of the reliant folders and have full control via windows.
4) Set up another XP machine. Same problem.
