Re: More problems with Warp 4 (45 days demo)

**I was planning on buying the system anyway, but I would like to have
**this demo version installed in the meantime so I could start working
**right away.

**I’m not asking for a "crack" or anything – not for the 45 days
**limit, anyway – but it WOULD be nice to be able to get around THIS

**Any hints will be greatly appreciated!

If you are using diskettes to boot from, there may be something
written to them that sets the date. Make new ones?

Maybe you could try this:

I like to think that IBM is smarter than this <grin> but some programs
that have time limits can be fooled if you set the date to 1999 and
install it. Set the clock back to normal and it will run until that
1999 date, plus the usual demo time. :-)

Worth a try?

DOS Session advice – setup USNF?

Sorry if this is covered in a FAQ somewhere; if so, could you point me to it?  I am having problems running US Navy Fighters in a full screen DOS session under Warp 4.  The DOS session can’t load the program, and it goes "Unhandled exception:  Access Violation" with a bunch of values following; all of these are equal to "h":  EAX< EBX, ECX, IBX, EDI, EDI, EBP, DS, ES, FS, GS.  Also, FFLAGS=h and cs:etp=h:h and ss:esp=h:h.  To top it off, upon entering anything with the keyboard, I then get a SYS3176.  This is a problem, as it prevents me from goofing off with the game.  Any help appreciated.

I’m trying to reinstall MWAVE on a Thinkpad 755CD following a change of HD.

There are two diskettes for MWAVE for OS2. The Setup program is supposed to
prompt you for a disk change. But it does not. It just exits after
transferring the files from the first diskette. Nothing will induce it to
continue. The result is a partial — and totally useless — installation.

The same thing happened to me last year with an ISA Multimedia Modem. I tried
to move it to a machine with Warp 4 on it and the install failed every time
after the fist diskette. IBM merely said that they did not support Warp 4,
only Warp 3.

In fact, it runs perfectly under Warp 4, but I have always installed under
Warp 3 and then upgraded the OS later. So we are talking about some small
installation anomoly here, not a real incompatibility. And I do know about the
configo.exe problem and Warp 4, but there is no configo on the Thinkpad
version of MWAVE.

Does anyone know how to get around this problem with installing MWAVE on

3.1G Hard disk for OS/2 Warp

Anyone knows of a way to get OS/2 Warp 4 to work with a 3.1G hard
disk?  It works with a 2.1G but not a 3.1G.  I believe it has to do
with a limitation of the number of cylinders for the hard disk.

I don’t have any good solutions, though.  Anyone can help?

has sucessfully installed XFree86, could you please tell me what your
"ModeLine" line in XConfig is? i.e.:

Upgrade or not?

Short question:
I have Warp 3, no fixpacks, on a P90 with 48 MB of RAM.  Is the upgrade
to Warp 4 worth it?  I can get it for ~$50 or so.

Longer stuff:
Do I loose anything going to the newer version?  I am interested in it
for its further integration with ‘stuff’, like windows and java, etc…
Is the LaunchPad as functional as in Warp 3?  Is the whole OS as stable,
or, better yet, more stable?

One reason I am interested in the whole thing, also, is the Win32-OS/2
project.  It seems to have lots of potential, and, if successful, I
might have a chance at running new apps on something non-MS.

What kinds of upgrades, etc, are immediately needed upon installation?
Newer netscape?  Newer Java (which I don’t use anyway…)?  TCP/IP

What do you think?  Is warp 4 better than warp 3?

Same here on the BJ200-ex as well, which I have
also notcied since installing the bi-directional driver
is performing like a dog under win-OS/2.
My question is how to remove the bi-directional
driver I installed to speed up printing in OS/2. This,
unfortunately, had a very limited impact and has
buggered the print quality under win-OS/2.
Thanks to anyone who may be able to help.
