I had DOS fullscreen programs run just nicely - until about 2 days ago? I
wonder if some hotfix removed this, but I develop some programs that require
DOS fullscreen and it has been working since december or when I first
Now I tried to uninstall the latest video driver, and use the Vista default
one - the DOS window does go fullscreen now, but it's blank .. so something
definitely changed in the last week or so.
What's with that?
