I'm using Windows 10 Pro, 64-bit version 1803 and dBASE 12.3 installed
over dBASE 12.2 without any problems.  I didn't even need to reboot.

What may be happening is that something has got screwed up in the
plus.ini file so that dBASE is opening off-screen.  Run the Windows Task
Manager and see if dBASE is actually running or not.

Backup the plus.ini file which you will find at


Delete the plus.ini file and open dBASE.  dBASE will recreate the basic
plus.ini file.
