The DESKTOP handle is one of the very first things it checks, if it can not find it nor determine what it should be, it basically stops, at which point in time you know the only other fix is the INI restore.
Checkini tells you how to run with the option to set the desktop entry (IIRC /DC:\DESTOP, or for me /DM:Arbeitsoberfläche). This was sometimes useful to me in the past. But of course the inis got corrupted in some way or the other and maybe restoring it from a backup would be a better option in such cases.

Ian you are a native English speaker I think. Did you understand what Andre is talking here? Do you know what the problem is? Do you understand what he means with f.i. all OS/2 WPA2 DHCP clients?

One last question, do you really think Andre is human? For me this thread is another proof for sort of AI attack to this forum. Looking at his stats page he seem to have no regular sleeping time too. Although no proof but another sign. I consider spending some time in filling other buzz words here in this thread to see what triggers even more crazy reactions.

As usual I don't even understand what's Andre is talking about. Only reason why I reply is
DHCP client when WPA2 was used
which implies he has troubles with xwlan/wlanstat. I'm guessing he talks about a problem with dhclient and not the OS/2 DHCP client. But it's guessing. He gave no problem description that makes sense to me. He don't even bother making a reasonable subject for this thread.
without bothering the user with a dialog
I do not have any problem with shutdown and so I think most users does not have it too. Maybe cause we all use xwp? I don't know. Unfortunately Andre does not describe his problem but asks about a utility in such an unspecific way I can not understand even when reading it numerous times.

And the best thing is ICAT stops as well of course. Now I can remotely single step through xwlan source code widget loading code  :)

_interrupt(3) will very likely encode an "int 3" instruction as a 2 Byte opcode (0xCD 0x03).
Just verified with a test sample and it decodes correctly to 0xCC. This is with VAC3.65 and icc /Ti. Idebug stops and the popup says 'A program-generated breakpoint was encountered'.

Thanks to all.

I searched the manuals, toolkit headers and samples back and forth for INT, INT3, INT 3, ... tried a lot of code I found in the net and got the feeling it must be something very simple. That's the reason I asked here. Now I do not understand why I missed the _interrupt section. One culprit was #include <builtin.h> and I concentrated on code examples and the toolkit instead the compiler helpers. Thanks again.

Topic says it all. I do not find any information to insert a breakpoint INT 3 in my C source code which should be compiled with VAC3.65. Sounds simple but obviously I fed the wrong words into the search engine.

Should. Not every development environment of every application is aware of a LONGLONG, and implementing your own LONGLONG variable is slightly harder than appending a reasonable L. If a development environment supports LONGLONG by default, then it resulted in a broken app (VAC3.08 -> VAC4FP2, IIRC).

I wish it was as easy as appending an L, and implementing my own LONGLONG is a bit over the top for an app which typically won't be used with huge files. Nevertheless I've looked at appending it, but it resulted in VAC4's fatal new errors.
Your a masochist if you're still developing new >2GB aware applications with VAC3.08. No serious application developer will do this. Did you forget the thread is about dreaming of an 64 bit OS/2? And you're talking about problems with a compiler from the last century.

Even for current OS/2 application development use VAC3.65 or VAC4 or even better OpenWatcom and gcc with os2tk45. And simply do -
Code: [Select]

I haven't used this bit of REXX for years. ...
Do not use this with xwlan3.12 or above. Changing the dhcp statements would be needed.

Enabling Turbo Folders also enables "Extended Associations" - by far, the two worst "features" of XWP. Disable Turbo Folders and save yourself a lot of grief.
Since some time with most of my (test) installations I enable Turbo Folders cause I want the extended associations. If you got once through the configurations of the associations I find it very useful.

On older installations I did not enable Turbo Folders cause it does not work well together with wps_wizard on SMP machines. But I think this is a problem with wps_wizard only. So I do not use it anymore. Now Turbo Folders works without problems here.

I know you will not like my answer but you've asked -
If so, what API features would you like to see present if there were a 64-bit implementation of the OS/2 API?

What features would you like to see removed from the OS/2 API?

ES/2's goal:  for target implementation, feature support, programming model, compatibility, extensibility, and general user experience and feel.

The slogan will be:

      "ES/2:  A better OS/2 than OS/2"

In keeping with:
       "OS/2:  A better DOS than DOS"
       "OS/2:  A better Windows than Windows."

If you get within the next 10 years anywhere near to what OS/2 does today I'll have a look at it. But as of today (and I'm pretty sure the next 5 years) it's not more than a very simple and very basic DOS clone at best. Someone would call it vaporware but....

Personally I miss SNAP most in Martins driver list. Multi head and current Intel graphic support. Most probably Panorama can never handle this.

Both troll Andi B. and our new comedian haven't fully understood what P6+ means, which happens to be used by the developer of my OS/2 browser, nor that I don't mind dmik producing a product for an even smaller community. A freedom of choice.

My OS has a browser, which isn't FF. My new hardware has no OS, which won't be Andi's DE nor EN. ......
Honestly I do not understand most of your writing here. Including your repeatedly used 'silence'. I really think you're not human but some kind of (badly programmed) AI. Only here to spam this forum with your mostly unrelated junk to annoy the last remaining OS/2 users.

If I'm wrong and you're a human then please try a better translation machine. Focus on topic and use short sentences with simple words. And take a snuff of humor next time before replying.
