[Coco] No windows

Bill, it's most likely due to the default size settings of the windows. The default window descriptors are all but useless, varying in size and color. It's the very reason my boots are setup where all windows are 80 col text windows. If I need a graphics window, I just create it.

Interesting problem:I'm running an HDBDos EPROM in my floppy controller, DriveWire MacServer onmy PowerMac G5, nos96809l2v030300coco3_dw.dsk, and I cannot create windows. At the {TERM|02}/DD: prompt, I type "shell i=/w7&" and I get &003 then the{TERM|02}/DD: prompt saying eof, and the {TERM|02}/DD: prompt is now{TERM|03}/DD: I can call up /w1 and /w4, but everything else becomes a {TERM|xx}/DD:prompt (whatever proc the called window becomes).PROCS shows all the processes that have been assigned to each of the windowsI called up.Surely DriveWire MacServer has nothing to do with it. I'm using freshlydownloaded NirtOS-9 files.Thanks-- Coco mailing listCoco at maltedmedia.comhttps://pairlist5.pair.net/mailman/listinfo/coco
