Re: best strategy for running DOS MYM on a Linux machine?

The dosemu desktop icon is downright ugly. Since the above-listed script launches MYM and I don't use dosemu for any other apps, I converted the MYM12 icon to .xpm format and copied it into the appropriate folder. In my distro (Linux Mint 18.2 xfce), program icons are stored in the /usr/share/pixmap...

Re: best strategy for running DOS MYM on a Linux machine?

Today I ran into several minor issues: * MYM 'Validate data' takes significantly longer on my Linux machine (7700K CPU) than on my 11+ yr old XP machine -- about 7 seconds versus less than half a second. After having to deal with a corrupted BUDGET file a few years ago, I got into the habit of valid...

Re: best strategy for running DOS MYM on a Linux machine?

I decided to install DOSEMU over DOSBox based on a comment I read elsewhere that DOSEMU is a better representation of DOS than DOSBox. DOSBox was developed specifically for gamers and has some features specific to gaming, but for non-gaming apps, DOSEMU may be a better choice. At installation, DOESE...

best strategy for running DOS MYM on a Linux machine?

My XP machine is getting a bit long in the tooth so I recently built a high-end 64-bit Linux machine. This is my first experience with Linux, so i appreciate the script posted elsewhere in this sub-forum that prevents duplicate instances. But what's missing is advice on the best strategy for running...

Re: Spin Off

Not sure if you're still following this, but I had a similar situation. I simply "bought" the spin off shares at 0 dollars. Once I entered the new value, a gain is created, which is appropriate. I think you can reverse your initial attempt by doing a 0.75 split.

Re: MYM won't run in fullscreen mode

Fortunately I made a full backup (True Image) a few hours after my previous MYM session, when everything was working fine. I restored my active partition and to my surprise, the error persisted. That means the error must have been caused by something that changed in the hours between my last MYM ses...

MYM won't run in fullscreen mode

I'm still running XP. Microsoft issued a special security XP update May 17th after the WannaCry exploit (KB4012598). I installed that update yesterday and now I can't run MYM. I get the following error message: "ntvdm.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close." :x I can still open a DOS windo...

Re: Any Value to upgrading from version 11 to 12?

Not sure if the OP is still following this, but there's a file in the following website library (MYM/DOS V12-What's New, currently 2nd on the list): http://community.netscape.com/n/pfx/forum.aspx?nav=library&webtag=ws-money There are a few other MYM-related files in the library. Also, the Finance/Ta...
