GRiD 2260 PEN Pointing Device is Disabled in Virtual Machine

  • Microsoft Windows for Pen Computing 1.0

This article was previously published under Q101877


The GRiD Systems model 2260 PEN pointing device, which is designed for use with the GRiD original equipment manufacturer (OEM) version of Microsoft Windows for Pen Computing 1.0, stops functioning after you start MS-DOS Prompt in a window.


When you run MS-DOS Prompt in a window, the PEN pointing device becomes disabled until you close MS-DOS Prompt. The pointing device icon remains in a locked position in MS-DOS Prompt or in a Windows-based application while MS-DOS Prompt is still in memory. This behavior does not interfere with subsequent data processing.


Closing MS-DOS Prompt restores full functionality of the PEN pointing device.

The model 2260 PEN pointing device is manufactured by GRiD Systems, a vendor independent of Microsoft; we make no warranty, implied or otherwise, regarding this product's performance or reliability.
