From RISC OS
|Aemulor and Aemulor Pro|
|Maintained by:||Adrian Lees|
|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.|
|OS Restrictions:||IYONIX pc and A9home only|
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.
