Amiga Forever Launcher Starts as "Demo" on Windows 98 and Me



Q: I purchased Amiga Forever, but the launcher says it is a "demo" version. This is windows 98 or Windows Me. What's wrong?



A: The first release of the Amiga Forever 2005 launcher was unable to properly process an environment variable which is set differently on certain Windows 98 and Windows Me systems. Because of this, the installation was not found, and the launcher started in demo mode.

A solution to this issue is included in the WinUAE 1.1.1 update, which can be installed via Software Director:

  • Close all Amiga Forever windows
  • Select Software Director (or Software Manager) from the Cloanto/Amiga Forever folder in the Start menu
  • Click Check Now to check for updates
  • Expand Amiga Forever, and right-click on the entry for WinUAE 1.1.1
  • Select Install

Other versions of Windows are not affected by this issue.
