I downloaded the unzup software for alph vms and when i tried to @unzip from the directory it is in dka0:[000000.users.prk] prk is my user director on my system. It gives me the following error %DCL-E-OPENIN, error opening ZKD�� as input
-RMS-F-SYN, file specification syntax error
$ clear
%DCL-W-IVVERB, unrecognized command verb - check validity and spelling

Ok

here is the mistake i was making found it with in the help file form unzip it self. If i typed "run unzip.exe" it would run but when i asked it to unzip a file it gave an error to many parameters. here is the fix
unzip :== $dev:[dir]unzip.exe for in which in my system would translate to
unzip :==$dka0:[000000.users.-prk]unzip.exe you are supposed tp put the in the login.com file so this happens on boot up.. the is to "define foreign command systeml"

it seems if i play long enough i will figure it out. but i panic put in on here then i have to post my own answers so please bare with me. I also hope that this helps some other noobie so they can continue to learn and not give up Like i have so many times i have installed vms.
thanks again

Recommendations: start with https://sourceforge.net/p/vms-ports/wiki/IntroVMSEnvironment/

I strongly recommend that physical device names only be used by system management operations like disk backup that require them.

Everything else should use concealed logical names to access disk names.

At one time, didn't this web site have a job board? I would love to use my legacy skills one last time in my career.

New Hobbyist PAKs for VAX/VMS are no longer available according to reports. Only commercial licenses are reported to be for sale from HPE

Hi all, haven't been here in years. Good to see it is all there still. I'm looking around at the forum to stop/start msipcap - 'could not be stopped' - for now. I'll shutdown FreeA
