I am trying to setup a COM port under ArcaOS. Do I need to add any statements in Config.sys? I tried mode com1 through com8 and it's not recognized. I don't see any COM ports in the hardware manager either. I'm not using a USB->Serial but an actual COM port on the motherboard.

Applications / HyperAccess 7
« on: November 09, 2023, 09:55:51 pm »
I bought a copy of HyperAccess 7 for OS/2 from eBay. When I go to install it it can't complete the installation saying that it can't write a file to a temporary directory.

"Setup is unable to copy the installation support file A:\~INS0762.LIB to a temporary location.Error 420."

The file is on the floppy. It looks like Setup.CMD is searching for a temp directory. Any thoughts on how to complete the installation?

Setup & Installation / ArcaOS Sluggishness
« on: October 10, 2023, 07:08:28 pm »
Hey all,

My ArcaOS 5.1 machine has started to get sluggish. Not sure what I can check. For example, opening Drives takes 10 seconds to show the drives, Firefox takes 30 seconds to open.. etc.

Machine is a Dell Precision T3610:

4 Core XEON E5-1603 @ 2.80 Ghz
500GB 7200 RPM Mechanical Drive in AHCI mode

I turned off all Virtualization in BIOS.

I don't know what to look for, or where to start. Any help is appreciated.
