Re: Autoboot for floppydisk

Hello, if you want a disk to autoboot, that is autostart a program, then you need to use a DOS that offers this feature else you will need to issue the command BOOT instead. Right now I just remember the Eurohard DOS4.1 having that feature Next step will be saving the program you want to be autostar...

Re: xroar-snap-2019-49969

well, it has been easier than I expected.
The config file offending line contains this text:

ui windows32

Looking at the XRoar manual I can find there this
-ui windows32

But this fails too when added to the config file. But it didn't create any problem with older versions ...

Re: xroar-snap-2019-49969

Hello,
a great step forward ...
I have created a new folder with the xroar.exe but *NOT* with the xroar.conf ... and it works!!
So there is something inside my xroar.conf that is accepted by prior versions but not by the last ones.
I will keep making more tests tomorrow.
cheers

Re: xroar-snap-2019-49969

Pere, have you tried checking the AVG log files? It could be that it is preventing the latest XRoar from making certain system calls or is placing XRoar in a sandbox. If so then there should be a way to make AVG ignore XRoar, but not having AVG I can't help much on that matter. Yes, I have not foun...

Re: xroar-snap-2019-49969

Searching the web I have found, recommended by MSN this url:
https://github.com/lucasg/Dependencies
And using this program on the new failing snapshot shows no problems :-(

Re: xroar-snap-2019-49969

Re: xroar-snap-2019-49969

I have been making some more tests ... If I use any older snapshot, for instance XRoar v0.35.x snap 2019-31064, it works flawlessly As soon as I copy any of the two last snaps, it gets blocked! Are there new 'dependencies', I mean some that were not 'needed' in past versions? AVG keeps saying the fi...

Re: xroar-snap-2019-49969

Hello Ciaran,
this is a Murphy's bad luck case ...
I will try on my wife's laptop to see what happens there. Both have the same AVG version ...
I had given a peek at the windows event viewer, but didn't see anything related to xroar unfortunately.
thanks for your help!
cheers
