Hi Glenn,

thanks a bundle for your reply.

Now, pity I have to tell you that things went from
bad to worse today with Calmira/Windows.

What happened is this:

When I tried to boot into Calmira the shell opened with message:

' Application error '
'Exception EReadError
 in module CALMIRA.EXE
at 0020:25DC.
Stream read error.

I clicked 'OK' & then it gave me
a cascaded array of smaller error dialogs saying:

'General protection fault in module CALMIRA.EXE
at 000B: 249D
& various other addresses

I did a reboot of machine but exactly got the same, so right now
I can't even get in any longer.

There is no panic though, because I still have the Linux part of my dual boot
system available

Nevertheless i grew up with Calmira/Windows & see what I can do to get it back. 
also need it
for special backup purpose.

I still have the DOS prompt available, so I'll try your suggestions in a while.

Neither of them, but to give you more details: I did a complete backup of all my
files some days ago because of a failed network installation. this was when I
still had the 3.12 beta in.
After the 'restoration' everything worked fine (without windows network). Only
after I had installed 3.2
on top of the existing Calmira version the strange symptoms occured.
