CD rom images will not load and freeze the GUI

Post by Solstar82 » Tue 05 Jun, 2018 7:34 pm

I-m trying to load various cd rom images, and none of them works, after i select the image, i have none in the cdro mdrive in windows 98, and the gui on top of the emu window won't respond to any command. The emulator still works but i cannot even exit the emu this way, i have to terminate the task

Is that image from a game?
Can you mount those images with another emulator outside PCem? Like Alcohol or Demon Tools?

I'd assume this is the WX mouse locking problem with the window focus, reproducible by doing this:

- open a CD-rom or shader manager window
- Tab to another window
- Close another window
- Witness your mouse get stuck in the center of the PCem window

its a demo cd found in many magazine of 1996.

image works fine with vmware and yes, even with 86box no problem

i tried that and the mouse won't get stuck..it just won't load any iso and i cannot access the interface anymore, i cannot even close the mu by pressing X on the top roght corner. i have to force close it with task manager

using same config and same hd image instead works fine on 86box

here's a video i made that shows the issue
