Re: Auto Launch Windows 3.1 Games?

demiurg1981 wrote on 2020-05-21, 04:43: I did what you suggested, but it loaded the game without sound. Why are you bumping a five-year-old thread? What exactly are you doing? What game are you running? People will not be able to help you without a lot more detail.

Re: Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II - How to switch GPUs?

in Windows
This was being discussed in another thread recently. It appears that something broke in nVidia's drivers somewhere along the way. Perhaps you saw that thread already? https://www.vogons.org/viewtopic.php?f=61&t=73700 The GOG version requires at least Windows 7 and is presumably using dgVoodoo. …

Re: MFC250.dll error

in Windows
Cool. It's satisfying to solve a problem like that. I wonder why ANESPIN.VBX wasn't properly copied from the floppies by the installation program? Did you get Filemon from that link I posted before? The official Sysinternals website stopped offering legacy Filemon years ago, so that was the first …

Re: MFC250.dll error

in Windows
Filemon, but I couldn't get THAT to work on real or virtual 95 Well, what happened when you tried it? Did you download the right version? Are the locales the same? I ran into a program once that crashed mysteriously because it expected Windows to provide the date and time in a particular format …

Re: MFC250.dll error

in Windows
I might also suggest using Filemon from https://sysinternals.d4rk4.ru/Utilities/Filemon.html on your Win95 machine. With luck, you can track exactly which files the program is trying to access, and then put the files in the appropriate locations in your PCem machine. (Filemon is a little tricky to …

in Windows
Not sure if anyone has figured this out already. I'm trying to run ZPC cd rom on Windows 10 with Dosbox. It'll complete setup then close Dosbox afterwards. Restarting it and running zpc.exe gives errors Cannot find MSVFW32.DLL Unexpected error: 21 You edited your post. Now this is just confusing. I …

Re: DOSBOX calling executables

I have been told that dosbox is not able to call executables Not sure what you mean by that. You can run DOSBox with multiple "-c" arguments to make DOSBox automatically run commands when it starts. https://www.dosbox.com/wiki/Usage provides an example: dosbox c:\atlantis\atlantis.exe -c "MOUNT D …

Re: Full screen

If you want to run apps like WordPerfect, you would probably be better off using vDosPlus. There is an immense knowledgebase on the subject available at http://www.columbia.edu/~em36/wpdos/ .

Re: ZPC cd rom on Windows 10 with Dosbox

in Windows
I'm trying to run ZPC cd rom on Windows 10 with Dosbox. It looks like you have Windows 3.1 installed in DOSBox, and you're trying to run ZPC with it - despite the fact that it clearly says on the box that it's for Windows 95!? What exactly made you think this would work? Did you read something …

Re: Switching video card when switching OS.

Thanks. Just one more question. Do adapters exist that would allow both video cards to be connected to a single monitor? I used a VGA "splitter cable" once to connect two cards to a single monitor. Of course it won't work at all if there's any kind of signal coming from the card that is supposed to …
