Module not found error
07/11/2018 10:19
I hope that this group is an appropriate place to ask for help.

When switching on my RiscPC using 3.7 I am almost immediately faced with this error message File 'System:Modules CallASWI' not found Error number &DC.

If I then at the star command type !boot <RET> everything seems to work as normal and the machine boots to my normal desktop.

If I put the module CallASWI into system:modules then on booting up the machine says something to the effect that this CallASWI won't work with OS 3.7 anyway.

Can someone point tell me what to do? As will probably be evident from what I have written, I am not particularly well informed about modules and things like that. But at least I realise that it would be foolish to start playing about with !system etc if I have no idea what I am doing.

At least I can get into my Desktop by this !boot method so I am not panicking.

Everything you said (including the dot) was correct.

All is well again.

My brother is always saying What is the point in newsgroups?.

I now have more ammunition! -- / _ |==============| / / / __ |===================| | Rodger Davis | /_/ / / / | rod@argonet.co.uk | |==============| / _/_/ /___) |===================|

This error indicates that you have a partial installation. The 32-bit CLib distribution is available from www.iyonix.com. It includes CallASWI 0.03 and a modified !System.!Run file that loads it during the boot sequence.

Have a look at !Boot.Resources.!System.!Run - there, you will probably find a line: If Boot$OSVersion >= 310 Then RMEnsure UtilityModule 5.00 RMEnsure CallASWI 0.03 RMLoad System:Modules.CallASWI This attempts to load the CallASWI module under all versions of RISC OS between 3.10 (including) and 5.00 (excluding), so this applies to your case. If you have this line in !System.Run but you do not have CallASWI in !System.310.Modules, then you need to put it there. Download the latest copy of the 32-bit CLib distribution from the site given above and install it as per instructions.
