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 V188.8.131.520, so I uninstalled and went back to my prior release of V184.108.40.2067.
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.
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.

malmberg December 12 2017 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.

malmberg September 10 2017 https://sourceforge.net/p /vms-ports/wiki/VMSInstal lation/ For the most part just use VMS 6.1 media instead of 7.3. But why run the older release?
DoeveR August 07 2017 Where can I find the write up on running VMS 6.1 using the simh emulator?
