Bamalama is on a distinguished road
Default Windows 8 & Emulator

Got a new laptop to replace the old, almost dead one (7 yr old Compaq). Just use it to pass the time at AFHT. Nice desktop at home.

The new one has Windows 8. Browsers.....have both IE 10 and Firefox 17.0.1

Can someone explain in a step by step process how to get the emulator to work with Windows 8. Never had an issue with prior computers. Usually figured it out by myself. I have followed the info on the emulator help page, but it's really out of date. I'm sure it's in which Java to use and the settings.

I can get to HTML version from the
http://www2.bnsf.com:8200/
page to work with IE, but not Firefox. The html version is really clunky and a pain to use though.

Help would be appreciated.

Thanks
Bamalama

From that page use the very first 3270 link. Turn off your popup blocker also.

Forget that page and go directly to the emulator on this link:

Turn off pop-up block, enable Java in either advanced settings or security.

Yes I have the same link but since he referenced that page I wanted to make sure he knew the correct one to use. Or just right click and save on desktop.
