Thank you Silvan.

Out.txt was blank
out2.txt is attached.  The qpdfpdf.dll is in the same directory as qpdfview.exe, I also tried with it in \os2\dll and got the same results.

Thanks for your reply Silvan.

The version that gives the error message is v0.4.1 and I think I have all the DLLs required but I'm not sure as there is no definitive list.  The fact that all the other Qt4 apps that I am using work without any problems shows that Qt4 and the gcc and klibc dlls are installed correctly.  Cups sometimes prints to the printer on the network print server but I think those problems are caused by the print server going into standby mode and not being woken up correctly.

I have z.dll, jpeg.dll, djv.dll, fntcfg2.dll and freetyp2.dll in \os2\dll so the question is what am I missing.

Note that version 0.3.7b1 works as long as the PDF files are on the same volume as qpdf.

Thanks melf but that didn't do anything - still the same message.  I'm wondering if it has the ecs file structure hard wired in as the readme says to put the dlls into ecs\dll.

Reviving this old topic but I would like to know if anyone has got the latest drop to open a PDF file?

All I get when I try to open a PDF is a message box marked Critical with the statement Could not load PDF plug-in!

I have followed the instructions as closely as possible (no ecs dir on WSeB so dlls go into os2\dll), what am I missing?

Scott, if you are going to keep your Warp 4 install I think it would be a good idea to make a backup of the os2 directory and then reinstall fixpak 17 letting it overwrite newer files except the kernel files then re-apply snap 3.1.8 again letting it overwrite files.

I say this because it sounds as if you have parts of the system backleveled and this is causing your problems.

Thanks for the correction David re fixpaks - my excuse, it was late at night after a very frustrating long day and I was going on memory ;)

Scott, I have generally allowed the overwrite but just note the file name so I can restore it from backup if necessary as I think all that is checked is the date of the file rather than any internal information.  For example, several of the files in the SNAP video get given dates when they were installed rather than the date they were created so when you go to upgrade they appear to be newer than the update files when in fact they are not.

As I said there could also be a lot of garbage in your ini files that could be removed with advantage - it also reduces the size if the ini files, another advantage.  I do a run of cleanini /c /restart on all the workstations here every Friday evening which removes redundant references to such things as deleted or moved files and so on.

Scott, I can't answer your question directly because I don't have MGL Doom but from this question and your problems with dialogue boxes it sounds as if you have a very messed up system.

A few questions to get things started. 
What was the fixpak that you last installed?  As far as I can remember 5 was the last official but I have the unofficial 6 on all the workstations here.  There is also the device driver fixpak 3, I seem to remember.
Have you run cleanini, xfix (from xworkplace) or checkini (from wptools) in clean mode and so cleaned out the dross in your ini files?
Last, is there anything else that isn't quite working as it should?  If there is then we need to fix your system before you do much more  ;)

Hi Paul,

Where do you want us to send the debug information?

My report for Lsusb is about the same as Wim's except I have WSeB and am using Usbres (no eCS hence no UsbDock) for usb information

While Lsusb finds and identifies my Epson Perfection 640U scanner the version of Sane you want testing does not.  I have created a debug log file using the test.cmd you supplied in the zip hence my question about where you want that information sent.

Re. usb.ids just remember that not all of us are using eCS - mine is in the same dir as Usbres (\tools\usb).

Andreas, so far I have seen clipping of dialogue text on only one settings notebook page and I can't even remember which It was when I used it several years ago.

As I said it removes the large ugly dialogue boxes making them neat and tidy and more fitting with the basic OS/2 setup I have here.  If there was regular clipping I would have heard about it from those using the workstations - they love to complain about the smallest thing.

Scott, there is one thing you could try, setdfont ( on hobbes.

I use it on all the computers here - well the one from which they were cloned and on a friends computer where the dialogue boxes and some program output displays were taking up a lot of the screen for no valid reason.  Once I set the default font to warp sans 9 everything was back to normal.  If memory serves it does need a rexxutil DLL and vrexx to work.

Conrad, I think you will find that was for the IBM PowerPC - a very rare thing indeed.

Andreas, i seem to remember Roderick, or one of those involved with, eCS saying that they were not able to change anything with the base OS/2 because of the licence they have with IBM so they are stuck with the old installer.

I know you are pushing the RPM/YUM installer, I also know that there has been some debate about that and I am yet to be convinced that we, as end users, actually need it.  So far zip and warpin are more that adequate to do the job if installing applications on OS/2.  Using either of those I only need one file on a usb stick to install the same application on all the workstations I supervise and maintain so the question is, why reinvent the wheel?

I do agree with you that Mensys would have a potential market if they prepared a CD of all the updated addons and made that available separately.

Excellent, thank you.

Just a couple of questions based on what I see here.

First, is the emphasis now for installing on notebooks?

Second, why is Intel video given a wide screen boost and not Nvidia?   Out of the several hundred machines we maintain for clients we have ONE with an Intel video - and it runs headless -  while the remainder are about 60% ATI and 40% Nvidia video based.  For those clients that want wide screen 1920x1200 (16/10) monitors we are scouring the second-hand sites and getting as many ATI PCIe cards as we can that are listed in the Snap readme.

As a supplementary question, did anyone ask what hardware support was actually required or is the support based on the hardware that a limited number of people have for testing?  If the later is the case, did anyone consider asking for volunteers to do testing - even if it was under an NDA - and if not why not?

I would love to be able to go to our clients and say with confidence that there is now available a version of OS/2 that will install on ANY computer they would like to purchase.

Naturally, if you are using ibm506.add, you need ibmatapi.flt to access your dvd, instead if you need danis506.add you need daniatap.flt (edit config.sys to verify).
In days gone by I have used the IBM506 add with the Daniatapi.flt without any problems, has something changed?
