    Guess the baby was born ...

    The 2nd link gets this:

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ')' in /home/msfnorg/public_html/board/admin/sources/classes/useragents/userAgentFunctions.php on line 763

    PHP programming error, or just a messed up internal link?


    Hoping something in this thread is usable since my wife still likes to use PrintShop 6 a few times a year, so she boots back to the W98 setup from the Linux she normally uses, and I don't like "restricting" her PC to "only" 512 MB RAM - remember when 64 MB seemed like a huge amount? Otherwise, we are done with all the M$ issues of malware and restrictions - just have to pick and choose Linux apps for what we want, but nothing I have found so far can work with her years old PS6 "projects", so that is the only exception for her - YMMV.

    Links still work for me but MSFN Forums have had a revamp recently and when I use the links they redirect me to:
    1) http://www.msfn.org/board/running-9x...n-t118097.html
    2) http://www.msfn.org/board/thread-index-t129027.html

    Does that help?

    stuck

    Both links worked in Firefox 3.6.3 as well.

    Thanks. Both old and new links work now for me, so I guess the server was having a bad php moment the first time I tried ;-}

    Anyway, the MaxFileCache in vCache setting did not help, but I saw in those other discussions mention of "maxphsypage" in that case as a "last resort".

    I am remembering though, that I picked up PS 20-something on clearance for a few bucks a while ago, and installed it on an XP setup I have on my wife's X30 notebook, and it managed the the old project files ok (along with the wonky Lexmark Z515 USB printer and special fonts for it PS6 uses, which prevented a VMware Win98 vm under Linux from printing). We don't think about that "spare" XP setup much since the notebook normally boots to Linux (Mint), but that seems to be the path of least resistance now.

    Why not use a virtual computer?????

    Limit it to 512m or whatever and be done with it?

    As a computer tech, I've been given several old Windows 98 machines, over the years.
    Without exception, every one of them accepted windows XP and runs just fine.

    It's a good FIX.
