aida16 does not start in ubcd5b7

aida16 is probably the better tool to list hardware details (even if it is unfortunately discontinued). In ubcd5b7, the tools does not start at all. I found that the problem was in

/ubcd/dosapps/ubcd.ini

That have this line :

aida16; "aida16.exe"; -$; AIDA16 (System information and benchmarking tool)

That should be changed to :

aida16; "aida.exe"; -$; AIDA16 (System information and benchmarking tool)

Unless the executable is renamed to aida16.exe which isn't the case actually. Once this is fixed, aida starts but complains that it founds a multi-process operating system and finally stop for that reason. That's another bug that I didn't find a fix yet.

Change it to:

aida16; "startup.bat"; -$; AIDA16 (System information and benchmarking tool)


The batch file will disable LFN support and launch AIDA16 without incurring the "multi-process operating system" message.

Putting "aida.exe" in the second file is supposed to work as well, as described in this post by as702, because "The STARTUP.BAT file in the said archive will launch regardless."

@as702: any idea if I am doing anything wrong?
