Using Windows and RISC OS together – WROCC meeting, 5th July

Last month’s Wakefield RISC OS Computer Club (WROCC) meeting saw Mark Stephens talk about how he uses RISC OS and MacOS side by side, and the benefits of being able to do so – as well as the problems that can frustrate the combination. This month the group is going to look at something very similar – this time the use of RISC OS in conjunction with Windows.

Andrew Rawnsley uses both platforms daily, and he will be taking the group through making his systems communicate and cooperate, covering both RISC OS running on the Windows system by way of emulation, as well as on native ARM hardware. He’ll be speaking in a personal capacity, rather than representing R-Comp, but there will be some R-Comp software covered because it, amongst others, helps the two operating systems get along.

The meeting will take place online via the Zoom video conferencing system on Wednesday, 5th July, starting at 7:45pm. Anyone can attend, regardless of whether or not they are a member of the club – the only requirement is the use of a computer able to run the Zoom software, which is available for most mainstream platforms. You will also need the meeting credentials, and these are the same as other recent WROCC meetings, so if you’ve joined one, you already have the details – but if you haven’t attended one, they can be obtained by contacting WROCC.

WROCC is funded by memberships, the cost of which is now just £7.50 per year, which represents very good value. As well as supporting one of the largest RISC OS user groups in the UK, the modest membership fee gets you access to their online discussion list, and you’ll become a recipient of the self-titled monthly newsletter, The WROCC, delivered to your email inbox as a PDF file.
