Hello,

I am attempting to run a Bridgeport milling machine that has a DOS CNC control with DOSBox. I've attached the .zip program.

In DosBox I use the command Z:\>mount a: c:\sx15 and the directory is successfully mounted. I change the directory to a: and can view the directory of files. When I attempt to run autoexec.exe, I get the error "Configuration File 'Z:\CONFIG.BXT' not found:".

CONFIG.BXT is located in C:\SX15 and I can view it in the a:\ directory in DOSBox

What am I doing wrong?

Before I attempt serial comms I would like to get the emulation working,

AUTOEXEC.EXE
ECHO OFF
PROMPT $P$G
PATH=A:\DOS
MODE COM1,4800,N,8,1
MODE COM2,4800,N,8,1
RUN

RUN
ECHO OFF
PATH=A:\DOS
:LOOP
BS
FONTLOAD A:\DOS\BXT.FNT
ECHO Loading Operator Interface...
BXT %1
IF NOT EXIST NEXT.BAT GOTO SKIP
CALL NEXT.BAT
DEL NEXT.BAT
GOTO LOOP
:SKIP

I attempted this with an earlier version of the Bridgeport program(BXT.EXE DOS 3.20 I think) successfully in DOSBox. The .zip files and .exe are attached. I am confused as to why I am getting the error with the newer version.

I appreciate any help.

Thanks!

I patched out the drive variable, it will just look for 'config.bxt'. Dont know if it will work for you.
But I do not get the config error now. I could not get both programs to run, but they do the same now afaict.

Good luck!

Edit: Will he ever come back, starting suspense drum-roll 😁 ......
