I was very interested when I found out about FreeAXP. I downloaded & installed it on Windows Vista. When I attempted to create a new configuration file the program crashed. I copied the following from the details:

Problem signature:

Two questions:

- Are you running the program as an administrator?

- Which version of Vista?

Thanks. We have Vista Business SP2 x64 on a test box. I'll recheck the wizard under that O/S this evening.

In the meantime, here's a FreeAXP configuration file and a FreeAXP batch file you can modify to test. Note the sample configuration includes the extra serial port TTA0.

Batch File:

echo on
start "FreeAXP" "%ProgramFiles%\FreeAXP\freeaxp.exe"/config="D:\Alpha\AXP_Serial.cfg"
exit

FreeAXP Configuration File:

/* -- FreeAXP Config --

AXP_Serial.cfg
FreeAXP configuration defining second serial port (TTA0).
Do not modify this configuration using the FreeAXP Wizard.

-- */

cp = control
{
cp_log = logfile
{
filename = "D:\Alpha\AXP_Serial.log";
}

alpha = alpha
{
memory=128M;
image = "D:\Alpha\AXP_Serial.nvr";
pcibus = dc21071da
{
data = "D:\Alpha\AXP_Serial.toy";
serial0 = i16550
{
s0_tn = telnet
{
port = 9000;
wait = true;
action = """C:\Program Files\FreeAXP\putty.exe"" telnet://localhost:9000";
}
}
serial1 = i16550
{
s1_tn = telnet
{
port = 9001;
wait = true;
action = """C:\Program Files\FreeAXP\putty.exe"" telnet://localhost:9001";
}
}

pci7 = i82378
{
}

pci6 = symbios
{

disk0.0 = file
{
image = "M:\Alpha\BURNER\System.vdisk";
}

disk0.2 = file
{
image = "M:\Alpha\BURNER\Data1.vdisk";
}

disk0.3 = file
{
image = "M:\Alpha\BURNER\Data2.vdisk";
}

disk0.6 = device
{
device = "\\.\cdrom0";
read_only = true;
cdrom = true;
}
}

pci11 = de500
{
adapter="ask";

}
}
}
}

I've tested the FreeAXP Beta 1.0.5.261 configuration wizard under Windows Vista Business SP2 x64 and not experienced any problems. I've created and modified configuration files.

Are you running 32 or 64-bit Vista?

We are releasing FreeAXP Beta 269 today. Try that kit.

Experienced the same result.

If you read that we recreated the problem, that was incorrect. I misunderstood what the tester reported. The configuration wizard runs fine under the 32-bit version of Vista we tested.

We're going to test another system tonight.

A few more questions:

Did the manual configuration work for you?

Are you running on a dual-core machine?

How much memory do you have installed?

Any chance you can upgrade to Windows 7?

I held off trying the manual configuration until I had tried Beta 269. I tried it this morning & it failed with the following:

%XNV-w-NOREST: NVRAM could not be restored from C:\Alpha\AXP_Serial.nvr
ESL-F-FAIL: Emulator Failure:
Runtime exception: CTB-W-NOBIND: Could not bind socket to listen on!
: ..\..\src\esl\com\TelnetBroker.cpp, line 110, function 'CTelnetBroker::CTelnetBroker'

I am running on a Dell Latitude D830 with the following processor & 4 GB of RAM:

Intel(r) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU T770 @ 2.40GHz 2.40 GHz

I would be unable to upgrade to Windows 7 at this time. I hope to eventually upgrade to Windows 7 64-bit, but I don't know how soon I will be able to do this.

The message about NVRAM not being restored would be expected the first time you run the emulator. This message:

CTB-W-NOBIND: Could not bind socket to listen on!

Would seem to indicate that another application on your computer is already using the port number used for one of the serial ports. You can try changing these (9000 and 9001) to different port numbers. Modify the putty lines accordingly.

I've seen the same problem with the configuration wizard crashing on Windows 7 x64 Enterprise. Machine is a 4-core opteron. The emulator itself runs fine with the config file you posted above. I have seen the problem on beta 269 and the one preceeding it. The only "unusual" thing I have installed re. .net runtimes, etc, is Visual Studio 2010 RC.

You aren't anywhere near an active volcano are you? Silica ash has been known to trigger this issue.

Seriously, we are unable to recreate the problem on any of our 10 test boxes running about 20 different flavors of Windows, which is frustrating. I'll see what can be done regarding diagnosing the problem in a different way.

RandyR: If you happen to leave the console window open from a previous FreeAXP run, you would see the "CTB-W-NOBIND: Could not bind socket to listen on!" message. The prior PuTTY console session would still own the port.

Thanks for checking this out. If you would like me to run a debug build or do something else to try to get some more info, just let me know.

I think I'm making progress. I followed the recommendation by iamcamiel & modified the serial ports in the configuration file. Now I get an error that a disk image file doesn't exist & there is no auto_create size set. Reading the User Guide I see that this would have been set had I used the Configuration Wizard.

Here's an example of the configuration syntax for three disks:

disk0.0: Existing image file.

disk0.1: 2GB image file will be created if it does not exist. Valid sizes are 1G to 100G.

disk0.6: CD ISO image


disk0.0 = file
{
image = "D:\Alpha\System.img";
}

disk0.1 = file
{
image = "D:\Alpha\dka100.img";
autocreate_size = 2G;
}

disk0.6 = file
{
image = "D:\Alpha\Alpha_OpenVMS73-2.iso";
read_only = true;
cdrom = true;
}





If you would like to outline the configuration you want, I'll create it and send it to you.

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.
