Has anyone been able to get Palasm 4.5 to run on Win XP? I've heard it
can be done, but so far it has proven to be beyond my abilities to get
it going. Any advice would be appreciated.

I run PALASM 4 version 1.5 from the command line. No problem at all. The
only things I added were to set the environment variable PALASM to the
directory where Palasm resides and the path should include the directory of
the exe. So

palasm=c:\palasm
path= %path%;c:\palasm\exe

Dear Byter:
Tried your advice... did not work. Error message is "Copyright (c) 1990
Ergo Computing, Inc. os286: BIOS checksum does not match, please
reconfigure". Any more ideas?

My version is from 1991. Apparently you've got a slightly older version
which includes some kind of copy protection. FAIK a 1.5 version has been
around on the net for quite some time but may be vanished. If you can't find
it maybe I can help but I need a correct e-mail address and you must realise
it's almost 4MB compressed. May address should be valid after removing the
spamtrap.

I've tried 1.5 on Win 2000 and it won't compile or simulate. It just stops
without any warning and the log file is not generated :eek:( I've tried it in
DOSBox 0.63 but that doesn't work either. I've only gotten it to work on
real DOS.
