Description: Aemulor and Aemulor Pro allow IYONIX pcs and A9homes to access a wide range of older '26-bit' software which would otherwise be unusable on these 32-bit only machines. Aemulor Pro provides additional sound and graphics enhancements which increase compatibility to cover many games and programs such as Sibelius.

Notes

In an ideal world all programs would have been correctly-written and would be 32-bit compatible as a matter of course. In practice, when an older program fails to work within a 32-bit environment, the available solutions are:

  • Re-write or patch the original software or the incompatible resources (usually modules) that it is trying to use.
  • Use Aemulor or Aemulor Pro as appropriate.
  • Continue using an older Acorn or RISC OS PC to run the software.
  • Use an emulator such as VirtualRPC on PC hardware.
