    Default Drivers For Microsoft XP

    I'm a user of Alpha 4, Version 6. It was running under Microsoft ME. I recently upgraded to Microsoft XP Professional. After the upgrade, it still run but only in half screen (horizonal) mode. I cannot get it to run in full screen mode. Is there a patch or driver available to correct this?

    There are worse problems than the video display using older versions of A4 with XP. Data corruption can occur. Alpha released version 7 specifically to deal with compatibility issues with XP.

    That doesn't necessarily solve the video display issues. Visit the version 7 forum and search for "video" to get an idea.

    if you want alpha to go full screen you have to go into the properties and adjust the screen width to 80 and the screen height to 25 and also enable full screen. This should have alpha running in full screen.

    Larry,

    I have NOT tested this is Win Xp, but it works in other flavors of Windows. When A4 opens, look across the top of the Alpha window and you should see a button with arrows pointing up, down, left and right. Click it and A4 drops into full screen mode (at least it does on my home Win 98 system and one of my clients' Win 2000 systems). To go back to the smaller (graphics) window, I think the sequence is either [Ctrl]-[Enter], [Shift]-[Enter] or [Alt]-[Enter]. I'm at school now, so I can't tell you for sure.

    {alt}{enter} is the key to use.

    Works on my version of XP

    No comment on "Drivers for XP" but interested in Ver 6 on ME machine. Inherited an ME machine as substitute for W98 machine.

    Tried innmerable times to install both Ver 6 and Ver 7 on the ME machine. The "run time" screen loads then nothing.
    Will not accept ANY parametes for the database, script path, and application I want to run.

    Any thoughts?

    There are some special issues for ME.

    Search the message board.
    You said you had v7? Those issues are addressed in the documentation that comes with the software.

    We have a small network and windows ME works just fine.
