WXQT2

Postby dilwyn » Mon Oct 07, 2019 7:06 pm

Anyone had any success getting WXQT2 (file transfer) to work on Windows recently (Win7 or 10) ?

It used to work fine on my system (well, it would work but the Help files wouldn't, which didnt matter too much), but a recent Windows update seems to have stopped that. Now it just quietly dies as it starts without so much as an error message.

It's at http://www.dilwyn.me.uk/files/index.html or http://www.daria.co.uk/qdos/

I just dowloaded it from your site and on my WIn10 system it works - I set Run in compatibility mode Win 95 - and it starts without any problems
I do not know if it is relevant or not - after each Win10 upgrade I also install a patch (win10_rs4_patch), otherwise my Samsung scanner does not work. So I have that patch installed.

Thank you Andrew. Yes, it works now with Win 7 or Win 95 compatibility mode set for it. Complains about not being able to find Help file on startup as it did before, but that's no problem. At least I can use it.
