Necromancer's Dos Navigator (Announce)

posted by bretjohn(R) Homepage E-mail, Rio Rancho, NM, 28.09.2018, 20:33

I've used NDN for a long time -- the best NC clone I have found.

I've downloaded and tried the latest version (5461) on two different machines, a desktop and a laptop. Nowhere on the link provided to report problems/bugs, so I'll do it here at least for now.

On the desktop (Intel I5-4590 CPU) the 32-bit version works fine, both with real hardware and in VMWare under Windows 10.

On the laptop (Intel I5-2450M CPU) it crashes (simply hangs) with no startup messages or error messages or anything. It does this both with the real hardware and in VMWare under Windows 7. There is not a lot a commonality between real hardware and VMWare other than the CPU (almost everything else is virtualized in VMWare and doesn't look anything like the real hardware), which makes me think it may be CPU-related.

Also, the 64-bit version won't work with any of my DOS setups (I use JEMM on all of them) -- I get an error message:

D3X: error 0xFB: V86 mode

So, the 64-bit versions apparently won't work when a 32-bit EMM is already installed since they put the CPU into V86/protected mode.
