Virtual PC 6 upgrade not working [fixed]
« on: November 09, 2015, 04:45:17 PM »
hey folks,

unable to successfully run the update for VPC 6 to 6.12

can't get 'Updater v6.1.2' to recognize a valid install of 6. fyi, it runs through fine until a certain point of where it rejects it because it says it can't find a legit version.


any ideas? has anyone actually been successful with this upgrade with the files provided?

thanks. 8)

figured it out. Had to upgrade to 6.1.1 update first via this microsoft link:


Code: [Select]

the update required me to upgrade to StuffIt 7.x in order for it to extract.

After that, I was able to install the 6.1.2 update via the link provided on os9lives.

Vectrex,

Can you upload the actual MS update as an attachment and I will included it with the download as an intermediate step.

As I posted elsewhere,  I cannot get Virtual PC to run on OS9.2.2. When I click through the 7 or so windows to authorize, etc, instead of opening up the  main window (like it does perfectly under 10.4) it opens again page 1 of the authorization sequence. I did with and without updates. No shared Lib complaints, and it accepts the serial #. Anyone have this happen?
