ERDEV & ERDEV$ "Advanced Feature" Error in OS/2 Protected Mode

Article ID: 35653

This article was previously published under Q35653


The statements ERDEV and ERDEV$ give the run-time error message "Advanced Feature Unavailable" when compiled and run in OS/2 protected mode because these functions are set by MS-DOS interrupt 24H, which is not available in OS/2 protected mode.

ERDEV and ERDEV$ are not supported in OS/2 protected mode. This restriction should be added to Page 40 of the "Microsoft Basic Compiler 6.0: User's Guide" for Versions 6.00 and 6.00b and to Page 520 of the "Microsoft Basic 7.0: Programmer's Guide" for Microsoft Basic Professional Development System (PDS) Versions 7.00 and 7.10.
