DOS Navigator, problem with cursor keys
|Reported by:||PSL||Owned by:|
I tried VirtualBox 1.6 to run MS-DOS 6.22 based virtual PC. I found a problem with keyboard in some applications. For example DOS Navigator 1.51, NC like free clone manager, has a problem when I try to use up and down arrow keys to go through the list of files in the window, one file is skiped, like one key press of arrow creates two events. Similar problem in UFO manager (NC like manager), I can go through list of files without problem but I have a probelm in editor, when I press "arrow right", "66" is inserted to the text. Arrow left inserts "44". Arrow up inserts "88", arrow down inserts "22" and home key inserts "77". Sometimes, text is not inserted but two events are created, like in DOS Navigator case.
I run the same PC under VMWare player/server and I don't have problem like this one. I noticed similar problem when I run my image under MS VirtualPC in the past.
I can prepare disk image with DOS Navigator for test, on request. Problem is repeatable, I guess some problem with virtual keyboard implementation.
