Network happy VirtualRiscPC shippingBy Chris Williams. Published: 25th Oct 2003, 12:56:56 | Permalink | Printable
Last piece in the jigsaw?As revealed at the South East RISC OS show, VirtualAcorn have finally addressed calls from users to implement networking support in VA's VirtualRiscPC software. In a statement issued on Friday, VA say that the network aware VirtualRiscPC Second Edition is now shipping to end users.
According to VirtualAcorn, the new version of VirtualRiscPC allows RISC OS software to fully access internet and network connections presented by the host OS. This means software like your favourite email client, ShareFS and, Heaven forbid, your prefered RISC OS web browser can access the 'net through the Windows computer running VirtualRiscPC.
Existing users of VirtualRiscPC can download a free upgrade from the VirtualAcorn website.
VirtualRiscPC is the emulation software supplied with Microsoft Windows based computer products offered by MicroDigital, R-Comp and AvantageSix although it is available separately. It provides full emulation of RiscPC hardware so RISC OS and third party software can run in the host Windows environment.
