I love the old Visualageproducts / IBMs programming packages / Redbooks, ....
The documentation are on real hardware (books) and very good.

I bought the complete VA 2.0 (with all printed docs) on ebay to learn Smalltalk; surely there are newer versions or freeware-opensource  stuff but i need to read in real books

Thanks for your comments and hints.

On somebody post the fix i need.
>> Nur das Paket VAG200B1 ist für VisualAge for Windows and OS/2 Single User 2.0 (5622-340) geeignet.

With this fix i could not direct fix the problem, cause the clean install of Visualage on Arcaos does not work [VA Smalltalk must run to patch itself]:
So i patched the working installion of Visualage 2.0 on Warp4.5 , packed the complete Visualage-folders with zip , transfered them to Arcaos and unzipped the files.
Now it seems to work: Examples, Clasbrowsers, my learning programs seems to work

I will check the Visualageconnectivity to SOM,DB/2 later

I have some problems with Visualage 2.0 Smalltalk for OS/2

Visualage 2.0 runs fine on OS/2 2.x, 3.x, 4.5  but not on Arcaos 5.06 (with or without additional fixes)
On e.g. Warp 3 i can browse classes & objects .. and develope apps. on Arcaos i cannot browse classes, the application manager don't work ..
It seems there are internal processes which doesnt work in Arcaos: errors like process ... process state suspendes ...

Changing the order of the DLL-pathes in the SET statements does not help.

Maybe i need some patches for Visualage 2.0
But on IBMs ftp-server there are no 2.0 patches.

On the old IBM Servicepac CDs there are some patches mentioned : 4/94, 5/95, 6/95, 8/95  keywords: "VisualAge" , "VAG200A1","VAG200B1", "VAV2STFX"
But i dont have these.
Has someone one of these CDs and can send me the fixes?
