When using an MS-DOS extended version of NMAKE, the DOSXNT error
occurs when attempting to run an application built with FORTRAN PowerStation from the makefile.
FORTRAN PowerStation for MS-DOS comes with two MS-DOS extenders:
DOSXMSF.EXE -- This is the MS-DOS extender used by programs created with the FORTRAN PowerStation.
DOSXNT.EXE -- This is the MS-DOS extender loaded by PowerStation utilities such as NMAKE and FL32.
The DX1010 error occurs when attempting to load one MS-DOS extender while the other MS-DOS extender is in memory. These two MS-DOS extenders are not compatible (see the Microsoft Knowledge Base article Q106567 for more information on the incompatibility between DOSXNT.EXE and DOSXMSF.EXE).
There are two alternatives to avoid the conflict:
- Do not use a version of NMAKE that loads DOSXNT.EXE.
- Compile the programs that are run from the makefile with FORTRAN version 5.1 or earlier.
Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in FORTRAN PowerStation version 1.0 and 1.0a for MS-DOS.
This is not a problem in FORTRAN PowerStation 32.
Running NMAKE that ships with the FORTRAN PowerStation on the sample makefile below generates the DX1010 error when attempting to run HELLO.EXE:
run: hello.exe hello hello.exe: fl32 <<hello.for print *, 'Hello' end <<KEEP
