Problem with new CSM v10 simulator

Problem with new CSM v10 simulator

Post by Peter Sandber » Tue, 07 Apr 1998 04:00:00



Hi!

Today I (finally) received the CSM v10 upgrade from Revolution Models.
With lots of expectations I opened the envelope and (believe it or not)
read the manual how to install the software before I started. However,
after installing the software and creating the necessary shortcuts I'm
still unable to run the program. Each time I try to run the applications
they return something like:

Runtime error 203 at 0B7B:3C42 (for the heli)

or

Runtime error 203 at 1132:3D6E (for the aero)

The same error occurs no matter how I start the application, e.g through
the shortcut, in MSDOS mode, or by directly double-clicking in Explorer.

I have also tried to change the display settings, e.g the number of
color, and the resolution, but nothing helps. Neither reinstalling the
software or even running it directly from the floppy disc.

I have a Toshiba 530CDT laptop running Windows95 and MS-DOS. Using the
MS-DOS command "ver" returns:

Windows 95. [Version 4.00.1111]

I have also tried to run the txtest and it works and I can see that my
transmitter (JR Max66) works with the simulator.

Please advice!

Cheers

/Peter Sandberg

Try re starting in DOS mode, not dos prompt.

BTW: Laptops have a bunch of app compatibility problems.

At one time I got a similar message with version 9.

It turn out my machine was too fast and required to use an utility to slow
down
the PC. CSM even sent me the utility and everything worked out ok.
It was called slowmo.exe (or something like it?). You should be able to
find it in http://www.shareware.com or http://www.pcmag.com

I don't think there are enough people with V10 yet to be of very much
help (mine runs fine. Sorry). It sounds like it may be a configuration
file missing or corrupt (unfortunately I can't check it for you at the
moment cus I'm at work and my V10 is at home).


CSM is probably the only one who can really decipher that error
message.

Which at least proves that your interface is working. From what I've
heard the normal problems with laptops are caused by the printer ports
(not bidirectional, strange addressing etc).

I'll try a few checks when I get home to see if I can duplicate your
problem but your best bet is to contact NHP.
