NT RISC Apps

(This is a guest post by Antoni Sawicki aka Tenox)

As I previously mentioned I’m slowly but surely uploading all my stuff to archive.org.

You may want to know that I just finished uploading apps for Windows NT RISC… Alpha AXP, MIPS and PowerPC. Happy downloading.

    1. Wow, I did not know about that! Thank you! Maybe you could send a guest blog article to Jason 😉 I’d like to see a ready to run package 🙂

  1. I had a quick look for the WNT 4.0 drivers for a 3X-PBXGG-AA but didn’t see anything yet, if anyone has them I could add another OS to my DS10 !!

    Thanks

    1. I don’t think NT drivers for this card exist. DEC graphics cards had specific UNIX/NT versions incompatible with each other. I think -xA is UNIX/VMS and -xN is NT. What I ended up doing is bought a HCL listed card on eBay and NT worked like a charm. I think it’s PBXGA-CN or -AN or PBXGB-CN or something like that, but definitely not GG. If you want I can open up my Alpha and tell you what card I got.

  2. Wow, very nice, thanx.

    Is there any chance you would also have the visual c++ x86 cross compiler suite (risc edition, forgot the version nr) ??

      1. You could even consider using the Mac cross-compiler’s PPC compiler.

        FWIW, you might actually want to check out the Mac stuff for VC++2/4. It’s insane being able to use the MS toolchain to spit out an PE containing big-endian 68k/PPC code, compile Windows resource and Rez files into the same resources, reconstitute it into a proper Mac application with proper forks, and run Win32 natively on Mac (or use just Toolbox, if you wish). I was able to port a Win32 program in basically 10 minutes. I spent more time figuring out how to write a Rez resource script for SIZE/BNDL than I did any code changes.

    1. It was mostly the enterprise stuff, like SQL/SNA/Exchange and the tools. There was word & excel for the Alpha, there was internal versions for the MIPS but seem to have never been released.

      RISC software was few and far between
