PNS works nice with Craig Payne's KBuf128.SYS (avoids key buffer overflow) and KS.COM, a Key Stuffer. Both not found any more where I once discovered it. Tempi passati.


PS: or use X-Finder -- and you will never use the Filer again. Smile

Oh, nice. I was able to dig up and kbuf128.sys from the 2000 CD InfoBase archive I downloaded a while back. And at that point, I didn't even really need to get PNS involved, since I don't (yet) need a menu with multiple actions for each file, I just want them to open in the given app. So I put some entries (a version made for use with FILER.INI that uses @ instead of \) into my FILER.INI, and that seems to be working well.

X-Finder looks pretty cool; I might spend a little time figuring out what kind of overhead is involved (both time needed for installation and configuration, and system RAM for running the thing).
