Re: [Bug-XBoard] Fw: [BATCH WORLD] This batch file runs on win2000 but not on win98

That makes no sense to me. There is only one winboard.exe, not one for
Windows 98 and one for Windows 2000. If it works on Windows 2000 but
not on Windows 98, I don't see how it can be the fault of WinBoard.
WinBoard simply parses the command line that Windows passes to it.
If you want to convince me that there is in fact some problem with
winboard.exe, then you will definitely have to give me all the details.
I can't make any sense of the partial message you've forwarded.
