    Default windows 2000 & A4 color equation

    We just upgraded to windows 2000 and installed a4v6 with a little help from this mssg board. The program itself runs fine however, there is a problem with the screen colors. We use several color equations in a4 to highlight important mssgs and the colors are all wrong in win2000. Fields are now magenta that used to be light blue and blinking fields no longer do so.

    I use a Pentium III 850Mhz, 256MB Ram. Windows 2000 SP2

    Any suggestions?

    Jack:

    I suppose you've already tried a number of windows screen color resolutions, i.e. 256,16 bit high color and 32 bit high color.

    In case you haven't, it's right click (on 98 at least0 on the desktop and pick 'Properties' then click the 'Settings' tab. Lower left is a 'Colors' drop window to select these alternates.

    If that doesn't get it, try running A4 in a window.

    If none of that works, try resetting the colors in A4 at the Alpha Main menu 'Other', 'Configuration','Set screen colors' and see if you can make it better - even if you have to create your own scheme. PAIN!!!!!

    Good luck

    Ken
