Limitation on inf and cat file name length?
Hi Driver Experts:
I have a simple question:
Must the inf and cat file names be in 8.3 format? Can they be longer than 8
Any difference on 64-bit OS?
Thanks in advance.
there are no file name length restrictions in general. 64 bit XP (which is
really server 2003 64 bit under the covers) has some restrictions on cat
file name length, I think around 28 chars

Run the old lotus app in a DOSBox DVM, and export the file in ASCII
If it already in ASCII form, you can import it directly. I am pretty
sure there are some free apps in Linux that will open them as well.
You would burn a Linux Live distro disk (Ubuntu Live DVD), boot that,
and then run the compatible app within that session, open the old file,

Hi I have a .net web application and am trying to create an xml file to be

small sample excel file saved as xml and noticed several tags near the top
such as Workbook xmlns = "". I am using the xmlwriter, does it have all of
this built in or should I just create a string and write it to the text file
before entering the elements that represent the data I want for each cell?

I would have talked you out of using the beta for a website. You can't be
