Try to use Exceed instead of SCO X Vision!

Make sure that SCO XVision runs.

I'm using Hummingbird Exceed.

If you look at the installation manual, there are a small number of settings for SCO that you have to change manually. You need to set SCO to start up automatically whenever it senses a request for X services.

Re: Error after installation..
Hi, I've got your same problem for the past 3 I've tried to Install a free program called Cygwin and lauch the dedicated x server inside that program that allows win applications to run on a virtual unix machine...and that works!!! I've tried to do something inside Pro-S and it seems to work well... I hope you'll enjoy it! You can download it at , be sure to download all the packets of the voice at the bottom of the install use simply for launching the x server run c:\cygwin\usr\X11R6\bin\startxwin.bat simply from windows and then launch Pro-S as usual with or without the launch screen, or read . Bye!
