Comments, Suggestions & Questions / Antivirus and ArcaOS
« on: February 28, 2023, 11:32:38 am »
Hello everyone:

Every time I try to access the ARCAOS yum repository, the host Windows antivirus, Bitdefender, warns me:

Accessed by: VirtualBoxVM.exe
Dangerous pages try to install software that can harm your device, collect personal information, or act without your consent."

Isn't that Lewis Rosenthal's page?

Also when I try to download or access the page of the creator of Filestar2, file manager recommended in the OS/2 Wiki:

"A malware-type threat was found at"
"A malware-type threat was found at
We have blocked this dangerous page to protect you."

They block me and won't let me download it.

Although they may be false alarms, I don't know.
There is talk about the absence of viruses in OS/2, it´s probably true, but I think that the reputation on the network should be improved.

For your informartion.

Greetings to all.

Setup & Installation / Old DOS Program on ArcaOS VDM
« on: February 24, 2023, 08:23:09 pm »
Hi all:
I would be interested to use a statistics program designed for MS-DOS 3.0 or later in an ArcaOS VDM session. But when I run it. it gives me this error.

   "OS386 requires 80386 processor
    Kernel cannot continue"

Is VDM an emulation of a 286 processor?
Could the DOS parameters be modified to make it work?
I've already tried a real MS-DOS 6.22 session on a floppy, but since it takes DOS/OS2 session parameters, we're the same.
This program has the peculiarity that it must not use EMM386.SYS but rather HIMEM.SYS as the extended memory controller.

This program needs:
- IBM PC 486 or 386 or compatible
- DOS 3.2 or later
- Min 4MB extended RAM (not expanded) The program takes 3 MB
- Mathematics co-processor
- Graphic adapter CGA,EGA,VGA or MCGA or one that emulates any of these (16 colors recommended)

This is the DOS version of The Unscrambler by Camo
Someone knows?

Is it possible to open files and folders in ArcaOS with a single mouse click?
For me is more handy.
