Hardware / Re: OS/2 for Industrial Use
« on: May 12, 2024, 11:31:18 pm »

Just today a community member sent me a link about a different industrial device that uses ArcaOS.
But I don't understand right if it is a device for wireless testing and what exactly it does.

It sell a product that bundles ArcaOS on a VirtualBox OVA and I guess with their software:
- Cassini Virtual Workstation & OS License
It is used for "offline development" but I have no idea what is that for.

The site has good tutorials to support their product with ArcaOS, like:
- Configuring TCP/IP Settings on Cassini EPC (OS/2, eCS, ArcOS)
- Update to the latest Firefox web browser (ArcaOS)

Any ideas to explain me better what are they selling?

PCOMM 4.3 and ZOC 4.1.5

ZOC OS/2 developper

Interesting! I didn't know about ZOC, do you recommend over PCOMM?

I used both in the past
(when I wrote some rexx script using EHLLAPI with pcomm (autolog to host session, search and record informations etc... process information and provide statistics under OS/2 usable by calc tool or graphical tool or whatelse helpfull) 
Using ZOC, I found it as been very nice with some interesting extra features. 
Of course, it needs several time (minutes !) to be familliar with ZOC comming from PCOMM

The best would be to give it a try and choice the one you prefer (under OS/2)

Hello all,

Somehow, WordPro started having some issues, without my touching any setting nor doing any update:
- When creating a blank file, it complains that it cannot open the default.mwp (that, I checked, is in its folder, and I copied one from another installation, to no avail)
- The icons at the top have all disappeared.Ctrl+q (or the equivalent menu) does not change anything, that menu never gets selected.

Any idea how to fix that?

The file should be under:
18/12/96 10:16         13 228    124 a---  default.mwp

Setup & Installation / Re: Install Arca OS via USB stick
« on: April 11, 2024, 01:11:02 am »
Hello everyone,
I bought Arca OS 5.0.5 a couple of years ago and just now finally trying to install it on real hardware, not just VirtulaBox.

I have my ISO file, but Rufus on Windows doesn't recognise it as bootable and writing it to a USB stick doesn't seem to make it bootable. Arca Noae's docs suggest using dfsanwin.exe to create a USB stick installer, but I don't seem to have this anywhere and can't find it online.

Can anybody suggest how to make a USB installer from the ISO?




The iso file was into an archive file.
Into this archive file you have the needed dfsee script like dfsanwin usable under windows system as well  readusb.txt about how to create your bootable usb key.
I would suggest you to download your arcaos archive again.


Programming / Re: Start program from VX-Rexx
« on: March 23, 2024, 11:44:51 am »

I have a cmd file with this line;

address cmd.exe "start /C /min P:\test\pdftotext.exe source.PDF input.txt"

and it works fine (converting the pdf to txt).

Trying to run the same line in VX-Rexx is not working.

Got some good tips in the below thread:,2932.msg32804.html#msg32804

I've tried any "combination" I could think of but no success.
At one point I got the error message "private_alloc failed, error code = 0x00000137".

Anyone who knows how to get it to work in VX-Rexx?

I didn't try this but may be you can try it:
'@start cmd /c start "pdftotext" /b/k '||your_program

Do you use a PS/2 mouse or USB cordless mouse ?
I remember having always done like this since v3

Open an OS/2 cmd prompt window and try under it

Past: Click and hold RMB + LMB, release both

Hi Martin,
There are programs which will not work and return stdout when called from a rexx interface (e.g. created by drdialog) but when started via a cmd.exe, informations are well returned to rexx dialog.
e.g. querycddb.exe

May be you could give a try with the cddbgui ...

I think that the best to do is to left cmd.exe as is and have an other option like ArcaNoae does it or like Windows does it (with its powershell)

Text Miss alignment corrected as well word "query" into dialog (link refreshed)
