Question MCP Error message

I'm trying to set up a WinUAE.AIAB setup on my university account, but when it loads into Workbench, I keep getting a error from MCP saying something like:

c:MCP failed returncode 20

Does anyone know what this means? I can't find a reference in the MCP helpfile to any error codes.
It's not really a problem, as I can always dive into the startup-sequence and comment the MCP command out, as I don't really need it. (Speed up an emulated amiga? Why?!), it's just a bit irksome, that's all!

Thanks in advance for your help!

make sure your CPU is st to at least an 020....

HMM fucking strange, im getting the VERY same error now... but my CPU is at 040....

And now the emulated machine wouldnt even boot, all I get is a flashing red screen!

Toni? HELP!

I tried commenting out the c:MCP command in S:startup-sequence, but then I get some sort of dialogue box asking for a directory T, and thereafter an error like:

echo: unable to open redirection file
echo failed returncode 10


PS: Have played about a bit more. I had set up three hardfiles to copy the AIAB setup across to. Removing them, and uncommenting the c:MCP command in s:startup-sequence lets it boot up partway now, it gets to showing the workbench bar (the bar at the top of the screen) and a blank background.

Ah. I see. I've been talking bollocks. Activating the Cycle exact CPU and Blitter option is what was causing the MCP error. Don't know why though...

Well, Toni has made a kind of compromise in the past versions with averagely exact blitter emulation, where most programs and games could be run with (except P. P. Hammer, for example!)
Now he's implemented a REALLY cycle-exact blitter emulation, and if you turn it off, the exactness will be *far below* the exactness of the past versions. That's the explanation I could think of.

andreas: your explanation was perfect!

AdamSelene: Cycle-exact forces 68000 CPU. Don't enable it if you try to emulate higher cpu...

"Ahhhh! I see," said the blind man to the deaf dog! Cheers Toni! Problem explained, if not solved.
