This review is from: System Commander 9 (PC) (CD-ROM)
I used System Commander years ago and found it excellent. Then I wanted to use a very, very, good CAD programme that runs under DOS 6.2 so I needed to install the old operating system on my current computer. The simple answer appeared to be System Commander. It wasn't. The vendor, Avanquest, eventually admitted that it will not function in modern computers.

The limitations imposed by current hardware were carefully not stated.

The sole solution to my problem has been to drag an antique computer out of the attic and try and get it to function. So far it will run the CAD programme but is averse to printing anything. Well, it HAS been stood idle for years and no doubt cleaning a few contacts will provide a solution.

To answer the obvious question, why not simply buy the updated CAD programme that runs under Windows? The answer is simple; I do not have enough design work to warrant spending over £4,000 when the old programme does all I need.
