Default Rave

No, not a dodgy gathering. I got my Rave disc out of hibernation today in preparation for an upcoming job. I've had it some time (Rave2) and it wouldn't respond to 'Workshop Manual'. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Er... Windows 10 I think Mike. Wouldn't updates carry it over?

Are your windows settings up to date ???--If not then maybe that's all you need.

Looking at the Rimmer's site it doesn't look like a new disc will help you - they were designed to run on Windows XP and Vista. They will run on earlier versions of Windows 10, or you could go and buy a cheap old laptop just for them.

Set the Windows compatabilty level for the desktop shortcut to be Windows 98 / ME. You will get an error on startup, but after that it will be fine.
