I'm trying to run a program for Microsoft Flight Simulator 5, the ATC Workshop that comes with the FS5 addon Flight Shop. ATC workshop allows you to create flight "adventures" for FS5 that are totally air traffic controlled.
When I run the utility (FSFSADV.EXE) in Windows 3.11 under DOSBox I get an error message stating the SHARE.EXE hasn't been loaded (see attached screenshot), and then the utility immediately closes/shuts down. The readme for ATC Workshop states that:
WINDOWS 3.1 OWNERS ------------------ The ATC Workshop component of Flight Shop requires SHARE.EXE to be in memory and configure […]
WINDOWS 3.1 OWNERS
The ATC Workshop component of Flight Shop requires SHARE.EXE to be in memory and configured properly to function. You will need to edit your CONFIG.SYS file and add or alter the following line:
You will not be able to use ATC Workshop without this addition to your CONFIG.SYS.
If you are using Windows for Workgroups 3.11 or Windows 95 this is not an issue.
I dug up a copy from my old backups of SHARE.EXE for MS-DOS 6.22 and ran it before starting Windows 3.11 under DOSBox, but get the same error message. Any idea of a workaround for this?
I recently installed my old copy of Microsoft Flight Simulator 2000 Professional, and have been having a blast flying it. FS2000 supports adventures files from the much older Flight Shop that have been converted to the newer FS2000 format (with the AAFConv.exe utility that comes with FS2000), and I thought that it would be fun using some newly created ones. Hoping that I still can 😀
