Hi,

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.

Is it producing a .cra file when it goes away?

Are you running 32- or 64-bit Windows 8.1?

Try dropping back to 598 and see if the behavior remains the same.

Hi Bruce,

Thanks for the response.

> Is it producing a .cra file when it goes away?

Yes it did. (It usually does, but not always :-[
I could send it to you if it might help.

> Are you running 32- or 64-bit Windows 8.1?

64-bit. (Kinda required for .614).

> Try dropping back to 598 and see if the behavior remains the same.

Sounds like a plan... I will pursue it.

thnx

No issues with host system going to sleep, shutting down NIC to save power, etc?

Windows keeps running and the net adapter power saver disabled.
As best I can tell, Windows is happy (though frustrating to use :-)

There is a Windows file access error in the log. Check you Windows disk and file integrity.

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?
