32-bit Enabler Feedback Requested

Send Article to a Friend

Mitch Bayersdorfer <mdb@apple.com>, the project manager in charge of the 32-bit Enabler at Apple, is looking for feedback from users of the 32-bit Enabler who went back to MODE32. Please send Mitch email about specific problems you've had with the 32-bit Enabler (concentrating on programs that work with MODE32 but crash with the 32-bit Enabler), as well as comments about why you like one better than the other. The level of response will directly determine Apple's inclination to update the 32-bit Enabler, so please do write to Mitch. Thanks to Jack Howarth <howarth@proto.med.uth.tmc.edu> for forwarding this message.

Just to set the proper mood, I'll start. I like using the 32-bit Enabler more than MODE32 because it's less obtrusive and doesn't turn off if you move it with an extensions manager. However, when I use the 32-bit Enabler on my SE/30, the rs command in MacsBug doesn't restart the machine, and if I open the Define Colors dialog in PageMaker 4.2, the Mac crashes instantly. Neither of these problems occurs with MODE32.
