v1.99B Windows XP
Posted: Sat Apr 21, 2018 7:34 pm
I'm trying to get v1.99B running on a Virtual Machine Client Windows XP SP3.
I have sorted out all the paths, but when I type 'zsdcc -v' I get a popup window which says:
c:\z88dk\bin\zsdcc.exe is not a valid win32 application
What am I doing wrong?

Use the current version instead. 1.99B is more than a thousand commits behind and some things have changed a lot.
A binary package can be downloaded from http://nightly.z88dk.org/.
Just unzip where you want it and set ZCCCFG and the PATH as mentioned here:

I am not sure why it would claim zsdcc is not a valid win32 application. The new build above will contain a more recent binary you can try. I'll try downloading the 199B package again to check.

Thanks for the reply. I downloaded the nightly build and this works fine thank you. It was only the stable version. I tried three times. Anyway, problem solved so thank you!
Not sure if you are aware of it, but there is a rather nice Z88DK tutorial on GitHub. The author posted on my spectrumcomputing.co.uk website:

I'm glad you got it to work. I'm thinking it might be something to do with XP. For a time we were compiling with Visual Studio targetting win vista and above and that was changed to xp and above some months ago.
Indeed yes. I am the one committing them
The tutorial is inside z88dk's codebase which is on github:
