The list of Available Warpin packages is empty - I have yet to see this ever populated.

Here, the list of available Warpin packages is pretty full. Likely I have the correct URL entered as given on the testers list some time back. Unluckily I can't share it and it has been long enough that I'm not even sure of that.

You could try moving x:\sys\apps\anpm\repo_1.wir out of the way with ANPM closed and retry.
Almost sounds like a bigger problem with your wordpro problem as well, hopefully not hardware.

There's %LIBC_THREAD_MIN_STACK_SIZE% to specify the minimum stack size for new threads. Default is 4096 bytes.
Seems there's a flag too but can't remember it.

The "Control Programming Guide and Reference", installed by the toolkit as cp2.inf has a detailed list of error codes, about 64K different ones including reserved.
For GCC/Libc errors, see @unixroot/usr/include/sys/errno.h

Ideally those basedev lines should precede the regular dev lines but the config.sys is parsed multiple times with the basedev lines parsed early, by  the mini-file system, so the result is a slightly slower boot.
I always had usbcom.sys towards the end of config.sys and it worked. Remming out the com.sys lines (and vcom.sys) for testing purposes seems the important step.

It's easy to build, or use digi's build of SDL1,

You could try reming the com.sys lines in config.sys and removing the /m:3 from usbcom.sys for testing purposes.
I used to run a USR robotics USB modem, model #5637, worked fine until there was a thunderstorm. It was fragile and  storms killed 2 of them.

Try mode com1, mode com2 etc to see which com ports are installed. Seems I remember someone having problems as the com port was a higher then expected number.

I wonder then, how SDL work then. There is not one mention of WM_VRN*. It just blits the whole SDL surface to the buffer (no direct VRAM access).

Cairo does the same. A comment in the code,
Code: [Select]
* This function uses DIVE to write those portions of the surface identified
* by @rect directly to the screen buffer.  It only supports 32- or 24-bit
* full-color video modes.  To avoid painting overlapping or child windows,
* it must perform all of the visible-region calculations that GPI normally
* handles.  Despite this, it provides a significant improvement in speed
* compared to using GPI functions.

Code from Mozilla (widget\os2\nswindow.cpp #405), for querying whether the shadow buffer is enabled
Code: [Select]
  // Don't use DIVE if the Panorama video driver is in use
  // unless its shadow buffer is turned off.
  HMODULE hmod;
  if (!DosQueryModuleHandle("PANOGREX", &hmod)) {
    char      str[8];
    if (PrfQueryProfileString(HINI_USERPROFILE, "PANORAMA", "VBEShadowBuffer",
                              0, str, sizeof(str)) && !strcmp(str, "0")) {
      sUseDive = TRUE;
      printf("Video driver is Panorama - shadow-buffer is disabled\n");
      printf("DIVE is disabled - Panorama's shadow-buffer is enabled\n");


  sUseDive = TRUE;

You can always use sh.exe to get around the command line limit. Create, paste the command line in and do "sh" use / instead of \

Hi Jochen,

  This last version does open the browser on the register page - thanks!


Same, opens fine.

Looking at the documentation, I guess you need to pass one as the execFlag parameter instead of zero.
Edit: Remember to test both with the browser running and not running.
Edit2: or perhaps DosStartSession() would be better to use.

Tested again, this time with the browser shutdown. It worked, bringing up Once SeaMonkey was running, tried again, new window with about: once again came up.
Noticed that when I started ClassicCube from a command prompt, the prompt output was,
Code: [Select]
Starting ClassiCube 1.3.6 ..
Adding (type 0)
Fetching (GET)
HTTP: result 0 (http 200) in 322 ms (94 bytes)
Going back to sleep...

DIVE is disabled - Panorama's shadow-buffer is enabled
[calBackendLoader] Using libical backend at Z:\mozprofiles\Mozilla\SeaMonkey\Profiles\\extensions\{e2fda1a4-762b-4020-b5ad-a41df1933103}\components\libical-manifest
DIVE is disabled - Panorama's shadow-buffer is enabled
Closing ClassicCube left the cmd prompt looking like it was still open and when I pressed CTRL-C, not only did ClassicCube finish closing, so did SeaMonkey.
On the command line, entering "seamonkey" works as expected, new window opens with the page loaded.
Seems like DosExecPgm needs something like "start" to have a new instance of the browser.
