Updating video drivers in xp
You will see other video driver files, such as VGA640. To install a video driver, for instance the most useful VESA1280. If a lower resolution fits the screen/laptop better, then choose one of these from the supported resolution list on the Autotrax under DOSBox page.
To run Autotrax under DOSBox 0.74 it is best to use vesa1280
The only original protel video driver that works reliably on modern hardware is VGA640. These drivers, to atleast 1024x768, have also been run under XP, win2k, OS2 and dosemu 1.02.0 on suse8.1 kernel 2.4.19 and debian.
The 640x480 standard driver supplied with autotrax (vga640) seems to work with just about any system that can run Autotrax natively.
When Autotrax starts it incorporates whatever is named GRAPH. If you happen to have Protel Schematic V3.31, the same graphics driver will also work for that package.
Other than that, installation under DOSBox is a cinch, and none of the trouble shooting info below should concern you - to complete a DOSBox Autotrax install, click here.
