Assign problem in RunInUAE - Amiga OS 4.1 FE

I'm getting an annoying Assign message every time I launch a WHDLoad game or Classic App in AmigaOS4.1. FE.

It started happening after I copied a few games and apps from a USB stick. Amiga DOS ask me to insert the volume (USB stick). Once I Assign or direct the file to point to UAE in my Emulation folder, the message clears and I can continue using the program in Emulation.

Here is a picture of the message https://drive.google.com/open?id=1OUbVeWemOAT9Fj3L-v4ZiqunqanQYQCh

I have checked the startup files in the System folder in both the actual System partition and in the Emulation > System and I don't find anything pointing to the USB stick.

Please let me know how to correct this. Thank you.

Your picture isn't publicly available. But if it's asking for the AOS 4.1 install CD, that's because the installer script is buggy and you end up with a link called "floppy" in one of the RunInUAE drawers.

For myself, I ended up copying the entire RunInUAE installation directory to the drive, fixed up the installer script, and ran it from the copy. (I also replaced the on-CD WHDLoad user archive with the latest 18.5, but that's neither here nor there.) I forget what exact changes I made, but eventually I had a complete and working installation, without any assign complaints when starting an app under RunInUAE.

Thank you for your answer. I didn't realized that the picture I uploaded and was sharing was locked for private viewing. I have changed the settings.

If I understand correctly, you are recommending that I install RunINUAE again from the AMIGA OS 4.1 FE DVD, is that right?

Hi there!
You should install the latest runinua and not the one on the FE cd :)
And the latest public version seems to be http://cshandley.co.uk/temp/RunInUAE_r8_beta6.lha


But it is ofcourse silly to do a reinstall just because something is messed upp in the configuration.

I would guess you could find the offending assign in the conf file called .uaerc_runinuae
On my system it's located in Workbench:Emulation/RunInUAE/E-UAE_1.0.0_AmigaOS4/

Huh, I wasn't even aware there are r8 betas. Latest version I knew about is the same r7-c on both the 4.1 FE CD and on Aminet.

By the way, it's not the config files that are broken from the CD install, it's the actual installation itself. There are other files missing, etc., so if there's a newer version available elsewhere that installs properly, it should definitely be used over r7-c.

Oh yes, now I remember what the problem is. The C/GfxChip installer support program dies horribly when certain RTG chip drivers are used, resulting in a partial, wedged installation. Looks like that hasn't changed since r7-c and r8 beta. I dealt with this by replacing the program with a simple script that echoed back my actual chip driver filename.

Hi.
You should report about your findings to the autohor of runinuae.
This seems like an easy problem and maybe some feedback would motivate him to release a new version to aminet/os4depot instead of having it hiden in some forumpost :)
