IMS 4.7 (System Data)

Hello, would anyone be willing to download this free software and see if it runs? I have attempted to run it and it gets stuck everytime.

"Couldn't initialize System Data" It seems to be looking for a file called ~/DATA/System.DAT

If someone could check and successfully run, then I could rule out a bad zip file.

Thanks!

Thanks, just tried that file and I'm getting the same error. Have you confirmed it works on your system?

I'm using a USB floppy emulator and wonder if that's the factor here. However, I've successfully run Cubase, Notator, SmpteTrack etc from the same floppy image process...

@robertmc, your download works just fine for me. I tried it on a 1040STE with TOS 2.06.

I can load it off the floppy disk, and it will also work when copied to the hard disk.

I also tested it on my TT030 with TOS 3.06 @ 1280x960 monochrome and I will get the same error message you mention (Couldn't initialize System Data).
