Installing WinUAE in Win95

While trying to start WinUAE in Win95, get "missing ws2_32.dll" error. I'm using the latest release, and DirectX 7.0.

This is the Windows Socket v2 and with Win 95 you need to apply all the updates and patches, but especially this one:

Also check out the following web pages for other updates you may need as well:

Thanks! I could not figure out what that file was. I will download that now. REALLY appreciate the fast response, and will make the EAB site a favorite!
Thanks again,

That was it! But I found WinFellow while I was puzzling over WinUAE, and it works very much the same... maybe faster!
Thanks again.

Visit my sorry web site, www.tech-helper.net sometime.

I just wish they would make a version of WinFellow that is not alpha or beta :-(

You know it's because Toni kicks their collective asses when it comes to WinUAE vs. WinFellow

Perhaps the support for the Win32 release just isn't there for WinFellow like it seems to be with WinUAE, I just don't know

IMO, both emulators have serious problems. I hope TW can fix all the bugs that BK put into WinUAE :-)

I think he can and will

Now if your avatar is correct and you can program, how about helping him out or at least offering to

I'm an Amiga programmer more than a Windoze programmer. I have previously contributed to WinUAE via bug reports, however these were ignored (by BK etc) so that put me off the whole idea.

I have a fairly long list of games that are incompatible with WinUAE, including WHDLoad games. I wonder if Toni Wilen would like a copy of the list (and if necessary the games) so that he can make WinUAE more compatible?

Because I'm willing to help if I feel there will be progress made on improving the emulator.

List(s) of non-working games (with short report where, how and when the problem appears) are always accepted.

Note that I am not very interested in debugging system friendly or WHDLoad games.. (I don't have registred whdload and debugging "normal" non-dos games/demos is so much easier than system-friendly)
