Dear Sir,

PocketDOS does not emulate the Husky FS/2 (or any other device) specifically. It emulates a "vanilla" PC/XT-class computer. It does not emulate any non-standard BIOS interfaces and as such will not emulate any Husky-specific BIOS calls (if there are any). Any hardware designed to be connected to the serial port of the Husky *should* work with PocketDOS. Other hardware is unlikely to be able to be physically connected to a Windows CE device and so will probably not be able to be used.

We have customers who are using PocketDOS to replace Husky FS/2 devices for thier applications. What specifically are you hoping to achieve?

Thank you for your interest.

Hello,

By some coincidence we have also converted software written for the Husky Hunter16 / Fs2 to run under pocket DOS. There seems to be cover for all the standard BIOS calls we use, but NO cover for any specific Husky API calls (like the power levels/ setting the comms ports etc). All devices we communicate with are serial, and these work fine.

Chris,

Thanks for the heads up! It's good to hear your success with FS/2 software under PocketDOS. I'm not sure if our FS/2 app uses any Husky API calls, but I do know it will display the power remaining of the FS/2and GPS receiver connected to the serial port. Considering how old the program is, I doubt anybody at Ashtech will be able to tell me if it does use any specific Husky API calls.

PocketDOS,

I was wondering if you were going to reply to my earlier questions and comments? It would be really great if you could help us get PocketDOS to run our program. Thanks in advance.

I've been trying to connect a husky FS/GS to my PC for the past few days with no luck. I have The Husky File transfer utility and I have survey pro in which I am trying to load onto the unit. Can anyone help me get these things communicating? This was the only forum that I could find that mentioned the Husky Data collector. Any help would be great. Thanks

Brian
