Re: SuperToolkit II: PARUSE(name) - is it a bug or feature?

Thank You Rich. In fact I was on the Online SB Reference page and saw the hint for the error in the manual, but didn't check that the table there had the correct results. Only after your answer I did read the table again and checked it. PARUSE results are 0 (unset), 2 (variable) and 3 (array) and NO...

Re: Ubuntu 14.04.4 and uqlx2017

One question: Can anyone access the native and/or USB floppy drives on Ubuntu (or another real Linux) with uQLx? On Windows with WSL (Windows Subsystem for Linux) I can neither access the native nor the USB floppy drive. QPC2 at least can access the USB floppy, unfortunately not the native floppy. I...

Re: USB Floppy Disk Device (Drive) with Support for Windows 10 and QPC2?

Windows 7 does not support access to QDOS DD 720k disks via a USB floppy disk drive to QPC2, so it is unlikely that Windows 10 will, HD 1.44MB QDOS floppy disks via a USB floppy disk drive are supported in Windows 7. Not having Windows 10 I cannot test that. With my USB-Floppy I can read my old DD ...

Re: USB Floppy Disk Device (Drive) with Support for Windows 10 and QPC2?

Former (Windows) versions didn't even support native floppies Do you mean former Windows 10 versions, am I right? Yes you are right. Version 1803 of Windows 10 at least supports native floppy drives. Unfortunately it seems something is changed compared to Windows 7, as QPC2 cannot access the native...

Re: USB Floppy Disk Device (Drive) with Support for Windows 10 and QPC2?

@Christian: I have now tried nearly anything. It seems, it is not possible to access the native floppy drives (those connected to the 34 pin Shugart bus of the mainboard) on Windows 10 (v1803). Former (Windows) versions didn't even support native floppies (only USB floppies where working). Most prob...

Re: Using uQLx on Windows 10

As I have written in another thread, Windows 10 now supports real floppy disk drives (i. e. those connected to the mainboard Shugart bus, NOT USB drives), but I cannot access them from QPC. So I now want to test it with uQLx. With the current Windows 10 version it is now possible to mount other driv...

Re: USB Floppy Disk Device (Drive) with Support for Windows 10 and QPC2?

Not yet, I will test it at weekend with UQLX and Windows Subsystem for Linux (UQLX runs on with WSfL if you have an X-Server like XMing installed). But I have had another problem: After enabling the native Floppy in BIOS, and disabling it, my USB-Floppy was suddenly B:. The solution is to uninstall ...

Re: USB Floppy Disk Device (Drive) with Support for Windows 10 and QPC2?

Are their USB floppy disk devices (controller and drive) which are compatible with: Windows 10 AND QPC2 ? QPC2 runs perfectly in Windows 10, but I can't access the floppy disk drive. The disk drive/interface is OK(!). I have testet it with MenuetOS which starts perfectly from the disk. But the same...

Re: One of the most interesting IT article

The German Wikipedia article is much friendlier to QDOS (albeit wrong or at least misleading, QDOS never had memory protection via MMU, as one may assume when reading the German version).
