  • OT computer question

    I bought a student edition of an older Pro-E off ebay a couple of months ago.
    It worked fine when I first installed it, but now I get a DOS window with a string of error messages. Mostly "out of environment space", with a few bad command or filename.

    This isn't supported by the vendor any more. It isn't "supposed" to have a time limit. Reinstalling the software didn't fix it. Google didn't turn up anything useful, either.

    Any ideas?

    OK... nevermind.
    I've been messing around with this for 2 or 3 weeks, and it only occurred to me to search for the error message (as opposed to Pro-E specific help) after I posted the question.

    I found the answer here, which was the first link in Google.

      Look at the config.sys and autoexec.bat files in the root directory (c:\). See if some other installation has remarked out or otherwise clobbered environment variables or the path for your program.

      This may help with running out of environment space:

        Thanks Den...
        I stumped myself for quite a while on this one before I stumbled on the same site. Now I'm just stumped trying to figure Pro-E out w/o a manual
