NewDeal Technical Support Document 229
The easiest solution for this problem is to tell your NewDeal not to use your math coprocessor. To do this, edit your GEOS.INI file. Find the [math] section and change the line immediately following the section header to read:
coprocessor = noneFor example, if your current GEOS.INI file reads:
[math]You would change it to:
coprocessor = intx87ec.geo
[math]If there is no [math] section in your GEOS.INI file, add both lines to the end of the GEOS.INI file.
coprocessor = none
NewDeal software only uses the math coprocessor in NewCalc, NewFile, and Calculator, so turning off the coprocessor recognition will not slow down most operations.
NEWDEAL /nomemto start NewDeal. If you don't get the error message, you are loading a program in your AUTOEXEC.BAT or CONFIG.SYS file that conflicts with your NewDeal software. To find out which program is causing the problem, you will need to edit these files and try removing or REMarking lines, rebooting, and re-entering NewDeal (without /nomem).
