Installing VisualAge 4 on ArcaOS 5.x

(1/3) > >>

Mentore:
Hello all,
been trying to install this old beast under my ArcaOS powered VM.
It seems, though, that even installing Netscape Communicator + Feature Install I can't get past the installation splash screen. Also rebooting the VM and reinstalling FI alone doesn't get me anywhere.
ISTR there was something helpful for installing VAge without that nightmare known as Feature Installer - I mean, what the hell did IBM developers think when they deployed something like that?

So, any help would be greatly appreciated. TIA,
Mentore

Neil Waldhauer:
I converted almost all of the Feature Installer products to simple REXX command line installs. But not, apparently, this one. I think there is more going on here than simple Feature Installer. I remember getting it installed on eCS, but I didn't like it, so I guess I never tried on ArcaOS.

Feature Installer has clifi, which allows command line install on most apps.

@Michael and Neil: thanks both.
Will try it this evening (if my son lets me a moment of relief, that is  8) )

Turns out I somehow didn't copy the entire installation CD on my VM, so VACPP.RSP and other files weren't where expected.
Now I just finished installing it and gonna see how it works (I already know IDE will be pretty much disappointing).
