Hello,

This is kind of a broad/open-ended question: But does anyone have some "getting started" help for usage of the SIMH simulator (to be used for VAX/VMS)?

I can provide any other details as necessary, but generally speaking would like to get this going.

We downloaded simhv38-1-exe-ether.zip for VAX and now we have all of the .c source and a vmb.exe

So now that we downloaded it, now what? I get an error running VMB, is there some other way to set it up? We could compile the source into something usable, but with what? Those kinds of questions.

The Help - FAQ link appears to be broken on their web site.


Thanks!

The link on the {Help with SIMH} webpage to a text version of the SIMH FAQ indeed is broken. AFAIK, the text version isn't maintained any more; you can download a PDF version via the {Simulator Documentation page}.

An older, but still quite accurate description of setting up SIMH and installing VMS is at {Phil Wherry's site} (also referenced on the "Help on SIMH" page), although it describes Linux.

We downloaded simhv38-1-exe-ether.zip for VAX and now we have all of the .c source and a vmb.exe

So now that we downloaded it, now what? I get an error running VMB,


VMB.EXE is the VAX-11/780 bootloader. The program you should be running is VAX.EXE. But before that, install WinPcap (a prerequisite, as described on the SIMH home page), and create a VAX.INI.

HTH,
Martin

HPE only makes the most current version of OpenVMS Alpha / IA64 /VAX available to hobbyists. When I had access to the Alliance 1 program it was the same. No public downloads are allowed by HPE.

lation/ For the most part just use VMS 6.1 media instead of 7.3. But why run the older release?

The openvms disks question is frequently answered in the forums, and is not something to ask about in the shout box.
