AF to point to new version of WinUAE?

Greetings. I am a former 8-bit Commie nut, a short-time A3000 owner and now a Windows 2000 point-and-click stooge. Does that tell you enough?

I don't know why I never got down far enough into the nitty-gritty of Amiga CLI, but the fact is that I just didn't. This mirrors my distrust of pure DOS mode, as well as my relief that GUIs rose to prominence. Now I am paying the price of staying in the comfy confines. I would say that my net experience in Amiga computing is maybe four consecutive weeks, and that's generous.

I have Amiga Forever 4.x, bought online back in the day when I had some cash for the software but not enough for a kickass PC machine to run it properly. (Yeah, I know about the recent release of 5.1 - I even got an E-mail about it - but now that I have a 1.8 GHz XP2200+ machine I am even deeper in the hole.)

If I understand correctly, AF comes with a version of WinUAE bundled; the latter is installed automatically and seems quite integrated. So, if I am right, what if I have a more recent version of WinUAE and I want Launcher to point to that instead?

Plain, simple instructions (or pointers to FAQ answers) would be greatly appreciated. If I am way out in left field, then explanations to that effect would be nice too. I am in heavy studies and can't risk my brain exploding with obscure CLI commands. Many thanks in advance.

That's no problem, just put the updated winuae.exe in the AF installation folder, replacing the old one.

Wink Duhhhhhh!!

I can't believe I didn't think of that.

Thank you for the pointer. I will be trying again soon.
