Screen Too Large in 50 Line Mode on VGA Running DOS 4.01

PSS ID Number: Q42442 Article last modified on 11-02-1994




The Word screen is drawn at the wrong size and goes off the bottom of the screen when Word is run in 50 line mode under DOS 4.01 with ANSI.SYS installed.

This has been confirmed to be a problem with DOS 4.01. A scenario very similar to this can be duplicated at the DOS 4.01 prompt. If DOS 4.01 is put into 43 or 50 line mode while running codepage 850, the screen appears in 25 line mode where DOS 4.01 thinks it is running in a 43 or 50 line mode.
