• TP7 error 200, divide by zero on Win7 AtomCPU Netbook?

    From no.top.post@gmail.com@1:261/20.999 to All on Wed Apr 18 13:59:00 2012
    From: no.top.post@gmail.com

    I used to use Turbo Pascal some years ago.

    But when my I ISP said I couldn't use Win3 and I'd have to
    buy W95, I said 'screw you' and changed to Linux and
    ETH Oberon. Now M$ has screwed me by convincing the
    wireless modem manufacturer to play "must buy WinTel
    products". So I bought this lame Win7 NetBook.

    I copied my TP7 directory to the Win7 thing, but I get:
    error 200 divide by zero
    when I compile/run the \examples\crtdemo.pas

    I've just checked: compiled/ran the crtdemo.pas on
    the original disk on the old PC and it runs OK.

    Should I suspect a file-copy error, or is the AtomCPU
    designed by M$ to reject Borland products.

    I have the original boxed TP7 with books & 5.xx inch disks,
    which could be a problem to get into the netbooks USB.

    Please advise. Yes I want to run in DOS mode - I think.


    Thanks,

    == Chris Glur.

    John,

    The mini-FAQ on your site is out-of-date. :(

    So it is. I have no copy from AIOE in my news file (but I guess eternal-september will still have it).

    I've uploaded the March 2011 copy from Google.

    By the way, am I the first to notice the line in Version 2.00

    Yes, there's little traffic. BUT ... I mentioned a few minor
    corrections which you haven't fixed in months. So it's not all our
    fault, ahem. ;-)

    "It may be possible to run BP/TP non-Windows programs using DOXBox http://www.dosbox.com/ currently at version 0.73, with version 0.74
    apparently just around the corner."

    DOSBox [sic] 0.74 came out apparently on May 12, 2010, which is almost
    a year ago. :-P
