"Creates Process" failed function "dos_r" (error 3bc7c0)

Just upgraded from 7.2 to 7.3.41 and am now seeing this error when running the DOS FSC:

"Creates Process" failed function "dos_r" (error 3bc7c0) The Data passed to a system call is too small.

The procedure line reads: DOS -a waverunner IO.exe.  (that is a space between waverunner and IO)  This is a LabView exe we created to talk to the LeCroy scopes before VISA was available.  Line worked correctly in the 7.2 version of metcal.  This is running on a WInXP computer.

Anyone know what the issue might be and how to fix it?  Thank you.

Hi Marc,

Most likely the cause of the problem is the space in the filename. Why this worked in the 7.2 version I don know.

Removing the space should solve the problem. If for whatever reason you want to keep the space you can use a batch file with a single line ´´waverunner IO.exe´´   (use double quotes) to bypass the problem.
