I've been playing with and using FreeAXP for quite a while (years), and it is great. But recently the emulator just "goes away". The log shows assorted behaviours from "nothing" (i.e. the log just ends), to an indication of a user forced exit. But the most common cause is shown in the abbreviated log appended to this message. Full log and crash dump are available.
If any one has any suggestions as to what I might do or look for to help identify a cause of this problem, your ideas would be much appreciated. The emulator is running in an OpenVMS 8.4 cluster.
Windows workstation version 6.2 SP 0.0, build 9200 () suite 100 (WMI Name: Microsoft Windows 8.1 Pro|C:\Windows|\Device\Harddisk0\Partition5)

bhamakripa June 24 2018 I am trying OpenVMS via SIMH. Need to get OS binaries for v7.3. Registered here but don't have any membership number yet which is needed to get license. Pls suggest what to do. I hardly know anyth
basilh June 05 2018 Any other forum members in Perth, Australia?
malmberg March 24 2018 Probably. More people hang out on the comp.os.vms newsgroup.
vaxpert March 23 2018 I have a PE42A and other Alpha system stuff for sale. I'm in So California. Any interest out there?
goodbyespy February 27 2018 To Prohorenko. Please, visit group OpenVMS in the ok.ru
peteherrera February 24 2018 How much does it cost to buy a complete OpenVMS hardcopy documentation set of the latest version
prohorenko February 17 2018 Please help to obtain the license on OpenVMS
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.
nmbonao December 08 2017 Is anybody knows OpenVMS 8.2 version downloadable version? or CD copy? Thank you very much

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?
