Legacy DOS apps on 64bit XP
Posted 29 April 2008 - 01:41 AM
We are considering 64bit XP in our business, mostly for speed increasing in our Crystal Reports (some reports take up to 7 hours to complete). All of our crystal report engines in our apps are 32bit, one is able to upgrade to 64bit but all our other crystal apps will remain at 32bit. Should we expect a nice speed increase even if we are still using 32bit Crystal Reports apps ?
As well, we have some Legacy DOS apps (Accpac Plus for Dos), that we use for part of our Accounting Systems. Can you get a dos prompt (by typing cmd at the run command) from XP 64bit, and run a dos app from it ? Most notably we run our dos apps via a batch file to get maximum compatibility and run some commands before the app is loaded.
As well we have some older ODBC drivers that are all 32bit, will I be able to install those ODBC drivers and have them still work ? Of course the ODBC drivers integrate with our Crystal usage, to really its all one big ball of wax between ODBC and Crystal.
Any experience here would be greatly appreciated.
