I am converting a workstation presently running DV Classic to DV/X.
The owner's license was bought early, and the DV/X is 1.00, with no
patches applied.

I have two software compatibility problems.  The first is with the DV
Datebook, one of the fabled DV Companions, on which the workstation
owner is dependent.  The software is supposed to run under DV/X as far
as I can tell, but I have problems getting the application to
recognize the keyboard at all.  No matter what is typed into the
window, nothing happens.  QOS distributes a DVP for the Datebook,
and I am using it.  This does not help.

Second is Borland's word processor, Sprint.  Sprint is at 1.01A.  The
Advanced User Interface is installed, slightly modified.  The problem
is that Sprint's non-BIOS keyboard handler sees all the Alt-Keys as
Alt-Shift-Keys.  Changing the "X-keyboard-behavior" parameter in the
DVP does me no good.

If anyone has used either of these applications and solved similar
problems, I'd be very grateful for assistance.  If anyone is using
these programs successfully, please let me know how you did it.

   This problem doesn't exist under versions of DESQview/X later than about 
1.1.  I seem to remember seeing this on the earlier versions of DVX - it seems 
that the solution was keyboard conf of 1, 2 or 4....sorry I can't be more 
specific (I believe it was 1).

Another *very* old bug.  Try changing the DESQ key to something other than 
{ALT}, or try running Sprint in a full screen window.

		       SCO Files Lawsuit Against IBM

March 7, 2003 - The SCO Group filed legal action against IBM in the State

made concentrated efforts to improperly destroy the economic value of 
UNIX, particularly UNIX on Intel, to benefit IBM's Linux services 
business. See SCO v IBM.
