Hi mauro

You can find kcrypto.dll in this package



Thank you Pete, that link takes to a 404 page, however I could download the openssl-0.9.8zh zip package from site and finally find the file there.

@Martin/Neil :  I get same issue reported in the picture when attempting to connect to a ftp site which I handle in other host system, only difference it does not hang when select utf-8 code , just give same alert of directory not found.

BTW, kfw.exe runs also if KCRYPTO.DLL is in /usr/lib directory  .

In eComstation 2.1 x:\ecs\dll I found kcrypto.dll. Copied to ArcaOs x:\usr\local\lib and K File Wizard opens.

hi, any possibility you can share your kcrypto.dll here? I personally cannot find it from none of the mentioned software supposed to include it.
Thank you much

HobbesArchive is up here:


thank you Martin, the given URL on eCSoft2 site was not accessible. Same for the OS2 OpenSSL by KO Myung-Hun which, then it can be installed as rpm package from netlabs rel repository, but as Mentore wrote here no KCRIPTO.dll present in it...

thank you, kcrypto.dll will also be useful, but my question was for downloading KFW itself, as HobbesArchive site isn't accessible anymore

Hi Neil, any other download location available?
Thank you

hi all, sorry if I ask something already written here somewhere as this is the 21th page of the thread and not much easy to retrieve a specific indication; since I'm following the results of Dooble QT5 updates which has a reliable behavior on my OS2 Warp4.52 VM , like to learn where can I find its latest version, better if in rpm.
Thank you much meantime for the effort spent in this task, which by my side confirm is giving useful results.

Hi, since it seems not clear how try to solve directly by fixing video driver side, it would then be the case trying to force the pointer not changing shape when pass onto the icon (that is the moment that the issue happens).
Does anybody knows how to ?
Thank you

Most probable reason for your issue is using an old BASEDEV=IBM1S506.ADD which had a small partition size limit. Later versions corrected this and Dani's driver always had no small drive limit

confirm this has fixed the issue in my case

not my case, desktop objects in DFSee 17 installation were correctly created on the desktop.
All I can say about is that I first provided the uninstallation of the previous version both by WarpIn and then deleting the DFSee directory in HOME:\TOOLS

Hi mauro

Copy danis506.add and daniatap.flt to [BootDrive]:\os2\boot

Open [BootDrive]:\config.sys and add the following 2 lines


then REM the start of these lines if they exist


Save config.sys


Test DFSee



Ok Pete, it has worked!  Now we know that DFSee 17 (guess other software as well) needs DANIS506.ADD and DANIATAP.FLT to replace IBM1S506.ADD and IBMATAPI.FLT .
Thank you much

It's a drop in replacement. Find your BASEDEV=IBM1S506.ADD, rem it and add a line right after BASEDEV=DANIS506.add along with any parameters that IBM1S506.ADD had.
I notice my config.sys has BASEDEV=DANIS506.ADD /!BIOS

ok, then it's only DANIS.506.ADD file to be placed in same directory where IBM1S506.ADD is ?
Do I ignore the other files in the decompressed directory?

Hi mauro,

One other thing you might try is to delete the DFSee partition then run xfix and or checkini with the parameters /C /H /T  Doing that will remove a lot of useless info from the ini files.

Hi Ivan, did everyting you wrote in this order:

-uninstalled previous DFsee by Warpin deinstaller
-deleted its previous working directory (C:/TOOLS)
-applied XFIX, removed all invalid entries and saved action on OS2.INI
-applied CHECKINI, went all at the end of items scanning and then confirmed end of session (is that what the way to apply the cleaning? No confirmation read about result)
-installed DFSee 17 free downloaded from ecsoft/2
-run DFSee 17
-uninstalled DFSee 17 by Warpin deinstaller
-deleted its previous working directory (C:/TOOLS)
-downloaded DFSee 17 beta from
-installed it
-run DFSee 17 beta

I think have followed slavishly all necessary steps to accomplish this attempts.

Thank you
