Ishar (OCS) clean install on KS 1.3 and problem with saves
 
Hi all,


I seems that ISHAR 1 (OCS) is HDD-installable, and it seems to work simply by copying its files to HDD and running the executable file, named "T.X".


However, it wants to save to DF0:, so what I do under KS 3.1 is:


Code:

assign df0: dismount
assign df0: saves

...and it works.

However, under KS 1.3, when I do an assign on df0: I get


Code:

Cant cancel df0

So, is there a way around it? Can df0: somehow be canceled/disabled under KS 1.3?


Thanks!

Not sure but can't you use the disk names instead i.e:
assign <diskname>: dismount

instead of

assign df0: dismount

Had a faint memory - had to check from 1.3 DOS. Yes, assign remove (!)

Most of the literature state the following for these arguments :
Quote:

"REMOVE" removes the name from the ASSIGN list. It's used for development only.
"DISMOUNT" allows devices and directories to be removed from the assignment list.
It's clear, isn't it ! (worth a MS help file :D :laughing)

In fact, DISMOUNT is useful when you have already a disk in df0: and you want to "dismount" it by script. In this case, REMOVE will not work

REMOVE works with all WB version. DISMOUNT since WB 2.0.

With assign you have created yourself (like the ones in the startup-sequence) and appearing under the section Directories: (when you type "assign" at the prompt), you could also remove them with
Code:

> assign <device name>
(without a directory statement and argument)

Hope this helps you :)
