Windows 7: compatibility w/ 2000 pro

compatibility w/ 2000 pro

I have a program that will run on all flavors of windows however a protocol that attaches to the nic will only run in 2000. Is there a way I could install or run this protocol in compatibility mode? The protocol is LAT and is for a terminal emulator that connects to an old mainframe. Ideally if I had a copy of Pathworks32 v7.4 I could run it on XP. The question is however can I install and run the LAT on compatiblity mode and have it work?

Doing a little DEC stuff huh? I haven't anyone talk about LAT in years. I didn't think it was still around. Wow...

Anyway. LAT is a protocol and I very much doubt you could run it the way you want. You may want to look at running Pathworks under Virtual PC mode since you have W7 Ultimate.

Yeah, they'd probably never heard of VAX. A little too retro for them.

You probably already know this, but LAT isn't routable so if you do get it going it has to be local to the VAX.

Good Luck.
