Is it possible to remove mouse from autoexec in Hitachi Drive Fitness Test V4.16. It's freezing on some systems during bootup.

Thanks.

I don't understand what's the issue here.

Either the program can potentially use mouse, or it cannot.

If it cannot use mouse, then the DOS mouse driver could be skipped altogether (i.e. not to load it).

If it can potentially use mouse, then the DOS mouse driver should be loaded. And, if the mouse driver is a problem with specific hardware, then the user can select to not load it during fdubcd boot up.

If, generally speaking, the program is capable of using mouse, and it happens to have some problem in certain specific cases/hardware, then the mouse driver should be still allowed for general use with the program. The user can always avoid loading the mouse driver in specific cases/hardware.

DFT has its own boot image, and is not based off FDUBCD.

Anyway, I have REM-ed out the mouse driver in AUTOEXEC.BAT for the next release and see how it goes. Don't think the mouse driver is crucial to the utility.

FWIW, I still think this is a personal customization for each user.

OMG...thanks Dimar for bringing this topic up! :D

This has been driving me crazy for several years & I didn't realise it could be something as simple as a mouse driver that is blocking the app from working the majority of the time. :shock:

Since UBCD 5.3.3 the DFT now successfully loads 100% of the time, including on drives (including Toshiba ones) that I'd previously marked as "DFT unable to start"

In fact, you could add Toshiba to the brands of drive that DFT is used to test.
