WhoWhatWhen
SketchCowDFJustin: I have a thing!
A complaint the Windows 3.1 has no PROGMAN. https://archive.org/details/qcrack
[21:34]
baioh yeah, I remember having that problem with a good number of apps when we first got this working with the stripped-down win31 image [21:41]
DFJustin1) it doesn't have progman 2) that's not the actual problem [21:41]
baican't remember if we have a workaround - is there another more fully-fleshed-out image with the full desktop that's also configured for secondary app launching?
ah :D
[21:41]
DFJustinbasically our batch file thingy tells windows to run the exe from the item as the windows shell instead of progman
but if there's any issue loading it, the windows error message is hardcoded to say progman
the actual problem in this case is that qcrack is a DOS program and not a windows 3.1 program
[21:42]
SketchCowAh.
I'll make the change.
[21:45]
baiah hah [21:46]
DFJustinI haven't come across anything that actually needs progman except for installers creating program groups [21:46]
baiI love the idea that qcrack is now archived btw :D
DFJustin: I think there were some games which basically used windows as a windowmanager for their UI, MDI vs SDI kind of thing - Outpost is one I had problems getting to run, I believe, but maybe that was a different issue
[21:46]
DFJustinI should say there are programs that don't like being the shell but that's not quite the same thing [21:49]
baiyeah, maybe that was it [21:49]
SketchCowIt's funny ("funny")
So the letter from the person said this was discussed on the forums.
I almost never visit the IA forums.
Ever.
[21:55]
baihuh. I don't know if I even knew there WERE forums [21:56]
SketchCowThere are. [21:56]
They're not pretty. [22:05]
