That's ok if you just want to find an app to do specific tasks. But Cinnamon Writer looked very promising and maybe it could have been the basis for an AROS Office Suite, Cinnamon Office.

We need an office suite, a text editor with real syntax highlighting and correct indentation. I'm using the AROS text editor that doesn't do that.

Having a new, modern browser is also very much needed for AROS. We have many needs.

as a text editor have you tried Annotate, unfortunately the programmer of cinnamon writer abandoned the project, today I contacted a programmer to tell him if he can bring ignition spreadsheet, maybe we will have the driver for barspipes sequencer midi and I am inquiring about a printing system

I agree with everything you wrote miker, these are the important software that you need on a system, and they are the ones sought after by the average user, thematic and complex software can be done later so much as not everyone knows how to use them, classic user has to be comfortable and not notice the difference of being on Windows, Linux or MAC

Any special requirements to run this program? Nothing happens when I try to run WCS_i386-aros (the latest AROS build on VirtualBox).

there are no special requirements apart from fixes to the muimaster.library which I remember caused problems for the correct functioning of the software, what distribution are you using I tiny Aros 3.1b

then I am not aware of how Alexander compiled the software and on which build he tested everything I think the reference is one of the latest with changes to the c library

I tried on:
ABIv0 20220318-1
Aros One 2.3

In both cases nothing happens when I click on the program icon.

I don't know what the problem might be then, I am using the latest mui texteditor class taken from aminet

Today I checked WCS on real hardware and it runs. So the only problem is that it doesn't run under a virtual machine (VirtualBox 7.0.4).

The problem is that nothing happens when you click the icon. Maybe I'm doing something wrong, but it's the standard VirtualBox settings where everything else works ok. Checked on the latest ABIv0 and on your AROS One 2.3.

Check that the icon is of type "Tools", on Aros unfortunately you cannot change the icon type, delete the icon and recreate it from Dopu4

Or, if the file "WCS.Prefs" exists, delete it !

Can you check if you can run WCS in VESA mode or only in native mode?

On VMware VESA it works fine ! did you delete "WCS.Prefs"

Yes, after deleting the prefs it works, thanks AMIGASYSTEM!

Maybe you should delete this prefs file from the distributed archive? This would reduce the problem on different configurations, and the program will create this file for itself anyway on first startup.

Alexander 'Selco' is still working on WCS will add improvements but the work will take a long time in the meantime we can use the current version which is new for us
