a Mini vMac Extra


mnvmreg-1.0.0.zip (info) zip archive. Includes source code.

update - MnvMreg is obsolete as of Mini vMac 3.0.3 and later. Instead, use the '-im 1' compile time option.

MnvMreg is a utility to install Mini vMac into the Microsoft Windows registry, so that double clicking on a disk image file with the extension '.dsk' will open it with Mini vMac, and so that such disk image files and also '.rom' files will be displayed with custom icons.

Prior to version 1.0.0 of Mini vMac, every launch of the Mini vMac application would reinstall it in the registry. But since this could conflict with other applications that want to use the '.dsk' and '.rom' extensions, this feature was removed. MnvMreg brings this back as a 'use at your own risk' optional feature.

To use MnvMreg, move 'MnvMreg.exe' application into the same folder as the 'minivmac.exe' that you want to use. Then double click on it to launch it. It should give a confirmation dialog to indicate it succeeded, and then quit. If it fails, it should display a dialog with a brief error message.

If you move the Mini vMac application, you will need to run MnvMreg again.
