Hi, I've been using Amikit 8 on my PC and set up some windows applications to launch from Amiga OS3.9 using winlaunch.
I noticed there was a newer version of Winuae out so tried to install it. Now when I try to use winlaunch I get an error message.
Is winlaunch only compatible with the Amikit version if winuae?

Hello there!

What error message are you getting? Make sure there is winlaunch.alib file in WinUAE/winuae_dll folder.

Hi,

Thanks for the tip.
I'll check both next time I get on my laptop where Amikit is installed. I think I did have winlaunch.alib in the folder but not so sure now.

I checked and I do have the file in the dll folder.
Still not working. I get

Program failed (error #8000000A)

This seems to be an issue with Winuae (or one of my settings on winuae) and any program that accesses the windows side.
I use whdlaunch and when you press the button to exit the whd game it is supposed to close winuae but I get a similar error message and winuae stays open.
I also tried uaectrl and that also gives a program failed error message

In that case better report this to the author of WinUAE directly, please: http://eab.abime.net/forumdisplay.php?forumid=5

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.
The problem was with my ppc settings. To use those programs I needed to use F0 Rom mode which doesn't work with PPC.
Another issue is Winlaunch only works with 32bit winuae and I was on 64bit.
