It has been too long since I have done any  programming under DOS. Maybe one of the other senior members can offer some help. My advice is getting a Linux setup going so you can test DnDBBS yourself.

You could shell  to DOS and trying running SHARE.EXE

The only problem with that is share returns a blank line!?

You could shell  to DOS and trying running SHARE.EXE and if its already loaded it will say so. Not rocket science but works.

I am using the following code to detect share:

Code: [Select]
InregsX.AX = &H1000
CALL INTERRUPTX(&H2F, InregsX, OutregsX)
IF (OutregsX.AX AND &HFF) = &HFF THEN
    Share.Installed = True
ELSE
    Share.Installed = False
END IF

Do you know of an easier way to detect share?

My guess is DnDBBS isn't detecting the DOSemu SHARE which would mean some investigative debugging on your part. It may be something simple that requires adding some conditional code to the source.

I think (again) you can force share in start1.cfg but I'm not sure if it works..

(the reason being because the files should be locked before a write to avoid collisions between multi-nodes)

I'm Linux centric and that is where most of my Script BASIC effort goes. It's hard to ignore Windows due to the install base and revenue potential but I see that short lived.

Of course I'm excited ...

But only to the extent of Win 7  ;D

Mind you, just being able to still use a 20 year old IDE with so few issues is itself exciting.

If the Mono or the Jabaco projects had moved forward, this would have brought VB6 functionality to Linux as well as Windows, but sadly, this was not to be - which is why I'm moving most of my functionality to Script Basic etc., since I will not be upgrading to any of the new iterations of Windows.

What I miss most about moving development platforms is losing the ease of form design, where most of the widget positioning/scaling is handled in the background. I hated doing form design on 24x80 terminals, and I detest doing it on ****x**** graphics displays. Ahhh .... c'est la vie.

Don't get me wrong. I don't expect you to fix this overnight or anything like that. Just wanted you to be aware of the situation.

Of course I have heard of Debian, though I have never used it, it was Sparky and Solus that I had never heard of.

This is important to me, however as a one man band I have limited resources and am just letting you know I cannot get on this any time soon, sorry.

One other thing I might try is running p -c -test on ubuntu, then transfering the new executables out of the test direcory to Sparky/Solus to see which, if any, run there.

Thanks for the report,
Pete
