Help :'(. I have lost module imgfx6mn.dll required by PMfax. Is there anybody who has a copy and could send it to me?

I just started my older PMFax to review logs and it start without the need of the dll !

I suppose imgfx6mn is from ImageMAKER provided by your fax device drivers.
Check if you have your fax card drivers.

For current V2 ->  now V2.0.0.4
A few corrections ( e.g.  regression on metadatas when grabbing CD code introduced on 25 feb 2023) (for the V2  exe replacement only)



Probably got a sys0039 due to a lack of usb floppy drive.



But why not the SYS0021 !

I'm curious to know why you've got a SYS0039 not ready message (for COMn !) instead the more expected SYS0021 not ready message ?

I updated avxcat to allow you set an exclude drive list from a command line.
fixpack 00006

You can get the file or the wpi
cmd:   avxcat --xdrive list    list is one or more drive letter without blanks   e.g.    def    (will exclude D: E: F:)
                                                ( to reset =>  avxcat --xdrive 0 )

note: to use only one time, setting is saved into ini file   

Hi mauro

I do not use Avxcat myself but would expect some sort of "exclude drive(s)" setting within the app to avoid the problem or, possibly, an entry in an ini file that could be changed...

Floppy drive D: is possibly a USB Floppy - if I am right you can get rid of this, if not needed, by changing the config.sys entry to

You could also REM cd related drivers in the config.sys to "lose" drive F:

Drive order looks OK to me - fixed drives above removable drives



USB floppy seems to be the problem !  (I don't have)
VFDISK or CDROM READY or NOREADY are of course supported under AVXCAT and it open/close CD to load a CD if needed
note: VFDISK with its small size has no interest to be used.

AVxCAT uses USED drives list by default
It can be changed to LOCAL drives as follow:
avxcat --locald
( to get back to used drives  avxcat --usedd )

I just tested the ans to other format:
Added the *.ans into AVxCAT and converted into mpeg1 os/2

The correction about dlls was introduced with fixpack 00003
I review my code and find a possible (in a very specific case) crash during conversion.
I corrected this, updated a few comments into extra logs view dialog and removed a older left trace entry.
I just refreshed the same wpi package at this time.

bldlevel is now:

"I run the latest wpi, as it mention i had some dll messing, but after install them i had no complains.
But when starting it i only see error sin drrexx dialog"

You wrote not having complains after installing dlls.
Did you install package 2 ?
If no complain, i suppose avxcat was up or no and just drrexx window?

Can you please install package 2
(you shouldn't have complain about missing dlls if this one was installed with avxcat)

What's your OS (os/2, eComstation or ArcaOS)


Please run from a command line:
avxcat --debug98

Please use my email link on my website and add a "dot" between "r" and "d" into the userid

ffmpeg seems to have ansi art decoder
V....D ansi                 ASCII/ANSI art

Just did a test using above sample:
ffmpeg -i OS2-Letters.ans OS2-Letters.GIF  (it works)

Most issue you have are due missing required dlls.
The problem is that RXFUNCQUERY() returns 1 if function isn't registered and 0 if it is.
If a new rxfuncquery is done after an add it returns 0 (if or if no dll available) and when the dll isn't present, the dllfunction call fail !

To be more verbose about missing dlls and not crash:
I updated AVxCAT and added a check into libpath + avxcat\dll path (this one is installed by package 2) and issue a message telling which required dlls are missing to start AVxCAT followed by an exit. I updated information about loaded dll and dll path into the Extra logs view. (menu view).

Package 2 from WPI updated too.

I just refreshed the wpi link with the updates (02.03.2023)
Please, get the refreshed link
