CWSDPMI is the DPMI server needed to run files on dos created by the djgpp compiler. You can download it here.

If you still can't get it to work, goto http://www.delorie.com/djgpp/zip-picker.html and select "Run a program I got that's built with djgpp" and dos as your operating system. Click "Tell me which files I need" and Delorie will give you specific installation instructions for the files you need.

well, i got the installer to run, and it got all the way up to copying files..
and then died from what i assume is a lack of having a math coprocessor. ..which leads me to another question.. what is the minimum system requirements for running seal ?

the system i'm trying to get it going on is a 486 sx 33 with 16mb of ram, am i being too hopeful ?

Ickus.

From the Needed.txt:

You need at least this to run SEAL :
Ram: about 8 Mb
CPU: 486 Dx2
Video Card: anything which 640x480@8bpp (SVGA would be the best)
HDD: Up to 1.5 Mb (compressed kernel)

but in your case you need a Floating Point Unit (Emulator).

::.After while I will post a link to a FTP Emulator.::

your minimum requirements are an Intel 386 or compatible, and a Graphics card capable of 640x480 at 8bpp, if you don't have a Math Co-Processor installed then you may be able to use the CWSDMPI "plugin"in this directory emu387.zip i have had an old BadSeal running using it but have not tested Seal2 with it.

erm, estenet, why do you want a FileTransferProtocol emulator?!

biggyp, i unzipped that emu387.zip and there's a emu387.dxe file which i assume is supposed to be a .exe file.. so i renamed it but it emm386 has a fit.. i tried running it without emm386 and the computer crashed.

any ideas?

nope, it's suposed to be a .DXE file and put in the same directory as CWSDPMI.exe

hope this helps.

hmm, i'm assuming cwsdpmi won't check if emu387.dxe is there .. because it doesn't appear to be using it.. i put emu387 in the same directory.. is there anything else i have to do? only asking cause there isn't any documentation with it..
