Hi.
I'm trying to run a program cup386.com for unpacking old dos executables, but when I run it under dosbox, it freezes.
Is there a fix for this?
Thanks.

for unpacking old dos executables

what executables - maybe someone know already how to unpack them

no idea (cup386 don't seem to like EMM386) - but have you tried UNP from http://unp.bencastricum.nl/ - well known, works under dosbox and maybe able to unpack you exe

Yes, UNP does decompress executables, however, I was just curious as to why CUP386 crashes under dosbox. I tried turning off XMS, emms and umb, but CUP386 still falls over.

I don't even get any errors when trying to use the program.
In fact, merely typing "cup386" without any switches simply freezes the dosbox session and I had to ctrl-F9 to shut it down.
