Merge 4.1.1/Win95osr2.5 Fails on OSE 5.0.5 500Mhz Box
You gave no information about your processors and their speed...
Are you running a 500Mhz Pentium III single or dual processor box?
If so: you probably will NOT be able to use Merge 4.1.1 and any version
of Windows 95. Details on this and MRGTP are in the newsgroup thread.
Note: Merge 4.1.1 and Win95b2.5 will run on a dual Pentium II 450Mhz box.
This was bug-reported to SCO back in August, there has been NO
progress that I know of. The last I heard from SCO on this matter
was in September. I've had this problem for 7 months now.
