OK, so java itself is shot to death...

Yes, that's what I'd do. It might be difficult to get ahold of a java 8
nowadays.

Hi,


Thanks again. I reloaded the re-upped version.

But under W$7 with most recent Java 8.251 (updated today) nothing
happens, not even the black screen or an error message.



Strange. Just to be sure, I downloaded the file and used it under win7
in a VM where it runs OK with java 8.



Under an old Lubuntu and likely an old Java8 it will start.
Also under W$10 with Java 8.241 there seems to be no problem.


Using a commad line,

java --version
will tell you what java you're running .


The Lubutu reports 1.8.0_66, running SQm8229 OK.
On my Pi3 it's even 1.8.0_65, still running SQm8224 OK.

Trying "java -version" on my W$7(1), I get:  
"java.lang.ExeptionInInitializerError" and a whole page of other messages.


Then I unzipped the same file on another W$7 machine (2), also having Java  
1.8.0_251. There it runs as expected.


So SQm8229 seems OK while there is something wrong with the Java on  
machine (1) since the last update. Also a cold reset did not cure that.

I probably need to uninstall it and try again.

BTW, -showversion works too but also shows a list of command options.

Thanks,
Bob

Not in v8, that needs java -showversion

Perhaps, to find out, you could  start it from a command line?

java -jar 

That should spew out some error messages...

Hi Bob, Per, François, Derek,

thanks for letting me know.

It seems the version for java 11 is ok, not the one for java 8, though
both work ok here.

I re-upped the version for java 8 (also changing the version number).

Hi all,

hot on the heels of SMSQE 3.36 comes SMSQmulator 2.29.

Win drives can be made removable.
NFA drives can handle (exec, save and load) files with an XTcc footer,
so that QL files can be  EXEC'd directly from a native drive.

I updated the Java 11 version all is working okay on Linux.

Maybe it's a Windows problem.

Thanks Wolfgang for the final 2.29.
But it seems something has gone wrong when making the zip.
The unpacked SMSQm8229 only opens it's W$ window, the content is 
black, no QL windows.

When viewing the supplied SMSQE bin file I see sections of SBasic(?).

Then I copied SMSQE (also 308.5K) from the 3.36 binaries, which 
looked alright although it said there @h01E0: 
"<>SMSQXq3.350002..".

The result was the same, no booting into my usual .WIN.
BTW The SMSQE 3.36 announcement was too hot for me and never reached 
my mailbox.
