I noticed problems with window mode/full screen mode when running DOS\nprograms from the Vista command line "cmd.exe".\nLet us take as example an MS-DOS program which you will find e.g. at INTEL.\nIt is the CPU command line identification tool CPUID.EXE. This program shows\nup fine in window or full screen mode when started from the "cmd.exe"-window\nuntil Windows 2000. When started under Windows XP in the "cmd"-window it is\nnot possible by any means to start this program in the original window mode.\nIt immediately shows up in full screen mode. Only after start in full screen\nmode you can return to window mode by <ALT><RETURN>. Under Windows VISTA BETA\n2 the same effect. There is no start in window mode possible. Even VISTA\nmight hang (graphics driver?).\n\nI suppose, that the full screen mode might be preferably enforced when a\nC-programm compiled with MS-C 8.0/Link 5.60 (which I use) is too big and/or\nhas an overlaid structure as is the case with my DOS program! Many other\nMS-DOS programs which I tested started in window mode and could easily be\nswitched between this mode and full screen mode.\nDoes anybody know possible reasons for this behaviour and why are there no\nproblems until Windows 2000? Might be, as Vista is still in Beta stadium\nthere could be a fix.
