running a PIF file for DOS application using CreateProcess
I am trying to find a way to use Allocconsole and open a DOS session
using the the extra parameters in a pif file like memory settings.
when I try to launch the PIF using create process I am getting an
The NTVDM CPU has encountered an illegal instruction.
and get the Close Ignore buttons.
If I use CREATE_NEW_CONSOLE in the creation flags, ofcourse everything
but it is open in a new window. in the allocated console window I
always get this GPF.
I can change _default.pif and just execute cmd.exe but I do not want
to be dependant on _default.pif because of multiple executions issue.
_default.pif is is hardcoded into ntvdm.exe.
How can I allocconsole, run CMD with PIF settings ? and no
Thanksfor your time,

Maybe first you should clarify what programming language you're using. You
posted to a C++ group, a VB group, a Delphi group and others. Even better,
post to *relevant* newsgroups only.
