Hi,

I tried to install "Background Debug Monitor for 68300 Parts" (BD32) software in my laptop, but i got error message "This app can't run on your PC". Can i know why this error occurred.

I used windows 10 laptop for installation.

Hi,

Please refer BD32 user guide and suggest to use "MS DOS emulator" to execute the BD32 application.

Wish it helps.

Best regards,

Mike

Have you bothered to ask Google? Have you tried all of the suggestions that you get when typing that error message into a browser? Lots of suggestions like "running in comparability mode" and so on:

I just tried that on my computer. It is WAY too old for that. It looks like a DOS program! Windows can't even get proper "Properties" from it.

The Readme in the archive includes the line:

I wouldn't expect 20 year old software to run on Windows 10.

Modern Windows is 64 bit. that old stuff mightn't even be 32-bit as those were the "16 bit days".

You might need a laptop running Windows 95. Or a virtual machine running old Windows or DOS. But then you'll probably get driver an I/O access problems.
