Author Windows 10 - won't complete install anymore

I decided to install the latest version last week, just after some Microsoft updates came out and I installed them on a Windows 10 machine.

The installer will not complete now. I assumed it was something in V2.6.1.560, so I uninstalled and went back to my prior release of V2.4.4.537.

That failed the same way. Here is what I see: The installer begins, all prompts are answered (Next, Next, Install) then it says "An external action failed. The installation will be cancelled". All I can click is OK. Then I see: "The installation of FreeAXP Virtual Alpha has been cancelled. To install it, you should run FreeAXP64 Installer again" Of course I did that several times.

Here is what is funny. If I don't click "Finish" on the installed, I can actually run it no problem. In fact I have had one of my systems running for several days.

Anyone else seen this??

Is this 32-bit or 64-bit Windows 10?

We've placed a Windows 10 beta kit on the web site. You can access it via the Freeaxp.com web page. This kit will only run under Windows 10 64-bit. There is a bug in the Windows 10 32-bit NDIS driver.

That appears to have fixed the install problem. Thanks!

I have also Windows 10. But in my case the latest installer did not fix the problem.

I guess that the problem to install the NIC-module when installing FreeAxp could be that I have virtual NIC:s for Virtual Box and Juniper, as well as the physical one. Could it?

I tried to install from: freeaxpsetup_598a.exe

I can install if I uncheck the network module when installing.

From the FreeAXP Release Notes:

5.1 WINDOWS 8 AND WINDOWS 10 32-BIT SUPPORT

FreeAXP does not currently run under the 32-bit edition of Windows 8 or 10. The 32-bit NDIS driver is broken under these operating systems. Microsoft has the problem noted for repair without a committed repair date.


Upgrade to a 64-bit version of Windows, you'll get better performance.

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

There is a special license for hobbyist to run some Digital's OSs on SimH/PDP-11 only. Real hardware technically needs a new license.

The license process takes a few days. I believe that it is processed in India so there are time zonesinvolved too.

The hobbyist license does not restrict you to a version of VMS for non-commercial use. For commercial use, HPE has programs for pre-sale testing of products. VMS 8.4 is the current release.
