    Only default.pif in the \windows folder and nothing else.
    Searched registry for "run" and it isn't pretty. Found a few
    programs that use "run" as a startup option. Please don't waste
    time on this.

    Yes default pif may be involved.
    Isn't there any in the windows folder?

    I believe when running Ms-DOS programs, if no specific PIF is found a default PIF is used. However I think creating a shortcut creates a PIF.

    Try the "properties" settings for your MS-DOS executable.

    Also try a more meaningful shortcut name. Don't know about you, but "Run" kind of forces me to ask myself, "Run what?"

    Rough guess but perchance something to do with the "RUN" menu????

    Weird problem with shortcut named "RUN"

    If I create a shortcut with a name called "RUN" to a DOS program that starts from a batch file the program opens up with a red background.
    What would cause this. Can't find any PIF's or executables named "RUN".
    Is this a registry thing? Is there such a thing as a reserved shortcut name?
Working...
