After a bit of a wait my hobbyist kit cd arrived in the mail! But when I popped it in my drive it turned out to appear as a blank cd-r. It's got the nice fancy label on it but no data...

I sent mail to the email address associated with the PayPal transaction but haven't heard anything yet. Is there anyone else I can ask about it?

Thanks!

What did you try to read it on? The disk should be ODS-2 format, which is only native to VMS.

I tried it on a Windows system, OSX and Linux. I tried to dd the disk to an image and use it under SimH on all three system with no joy.

Perhaps it's just an error in my methodology? I'm sure others have used the kit cd to setup a SimH environment... any pointers?

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
