Design Manager 6.0.1 - My screen goes black during when "translate" is run (DOSGRAB in Windows 95)

Description

Keywords: DOS, DOSGRAB, black, translate, XACT, Design Manager, Win95

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
When "translate" is performing, my screen suddenly turns black. Once "translate" is complete, the Windows screen returns. Everything completes normally, but when I start Flow Engine, the screen turns black again.

Solution

This is related to DOSGRAB. When ever a DOS-based program is launched by the Design Manager GUI, the DOSGRAB program enters a full-screen DOS mode.

To avoid this problem:

1. Select DOSGRAB (be sure to select "dosgrab.exe" and not the shortcut) with the right mouse button. This will cause a pop-up menu to appear.

2. Select "Properties" at the bottom of the pop-up menu.

3. In the DOSGRAB Properties dialog box, select the "Screen" tab.

4. In the Usage section, select "Window" instead of "Full-screen."
