Hey group!
Will qm/Scarlet ever be ported to Windows?

I have a Ladybridge openQM with a ‘personal’ license that I use for personal software projects.  I would use QM/Scarlet instead.  

Thanks

Thanks for the work on SDME. I'm curious if you are on the Discord for
SDME? Or want to be. This work should be shared over there as there are a
number of people there who I'm sure would be ...more

It's on my (long) to-do list. Along with learning how to use the freebie
Visual Studio or whatever it is you need to do all that stuff ...

The alternative, of course, is to run it in a VM. Or use "Microsoft
Linux For Windows" or whatever it's called. I've never played with the
latter. But it shouldn't be hard to install virtualbox and run Scarlet
in that.

  • Will qm/Scarlet ever be ported to Windows?

 

QM started life on Windows and this was subsequently ported to Linux. The open source version was created by stripping out the Windows functionality. This implies that porting back to Windows is possible, however, it will be a massive task, especially if the aim is to end up with something that is a viable implementation of the features found in the current commercial version.

QM is still my favorite and most used multi value system for me and my clients.
Converting my last non QM client to QM this month.
Thanks for everything sir Martin.
Wish you were still in control, but hey, everyone has to move on.
Hope you are doing well.

I also have to say 'kudos' to Doug Dumitru and Sam Anderson for their virtual hosting of LAQP (Linux,Apache,QM,PHP) for my clients. I would never have been able to program web services without Doug's 'Coyote Web Server'. It is really a wonderful 'thing'. (Wish he would port it to 64bit, but it runs without exception on 32bit QM)

Respectfully,

CDMI
