PC Emulation

Hi there guys, some weeks ago i posted something about it, i wanted to get some useful pc emulator for my 040 33, and i had some great help. However, i didn't have the time to test the stuff and that's why i'm coming now "so late" with some problems again.

Well the story goes as follows.

I've got the PC-Task v3.1 version with all features enabled, however it seems sound is really buggy in this version that's why i tried to get the 4.x version.

The problem here is i've got the 4.3 demo version that works nice, but as long as it's demo has a lot of features missing. AND i've got the 4.4 registered version... But i'm not ABLE TO MAKE IT WORK.

The question is i can boot with no problems, and hang around with DOS and text mode... However when i run an app that needs to enter any video mode... CGA-VGA whatsoever i always get dumped back to the WBench screen with an "Can't open or use screen" message... I've tried all the video modes and all the combinations... But it seems something is wrong here and i'm missing it...

On the other hand i've got the PCx emulator versions 1.1 registered, and 2.1 demo. Plus a crackpatch supposed to be for 2.1 version.

I've found out PCx works somehow better than PC-Task, however the problem with this 1.1 version is that it doesn't support FM emulation so i have to use PC-Speaker beep-beep-a-go-go. I do have the 2.1 version that looks like that supports full soundblaster features, however as long as it's DEMO, i can't make it work properly. The already told patch is from 1996 date of launch of the 1.1. version not the 2.1... If i run it it just simply block some options free on demo mode, such as memory size, limited to 4mb in demo mode, limited to 1 if i do use the patch.

What a i missing with PC-Task 4.4? and what's wrong with PCx 2.1?
Could somebody if possible drop in the zone one of the registered versions for these useful programs?

Anticipated thanks.
