AR# 598: PROSERIES 6.0: About error, "386 chip is currently exectuing in virtual mode"
PROSERIES 6.0: About error, "386 chip is currently exectuing in virtual mode"
The 386 chip is currently executing in virtual mode under the control of another program. If it's the Compaq CEMM software (or compatible, such as Quarterdeck's QEMM) use the -CEMM switch on the command line to turn it off.
When performing an action that causes a program to get run within the ViewLogic PRO Series environment, users get the windows error listed above.
CAUSE: The version prior to XACT 5.1.1 contained Executables that could not be run in Windows. Attempting to run these execuitables in an MSDOS box would result in the error shown above.
This can be caused if an older, non-windows compatible, executable appears in the path before the new PROSER directory. For example, users of ViewDraw-LCA may still have the DOS workview in their path, which may cause PRO Series to execute these versions of the Viewlogic software.
Remove all references to WORKVIEW (or any other ViewLogic DOS software) in the following system variables: PATH, WDIR, and SYSPLT.
