RISCOS DDE SysMerge not working

Wed Jun 12, 2019 2:09 pm

Been struggling with RISCOS open for the past 4 hours. I need to build a module, so I downloaded the DDE and moved all the files to root. The documentation tells me to run !SysMerge, however when I double click it, the file gets opened in a text file. If I set the !sysmerge directory as current directory, open task window and type !sysmerge I get the error "Window manager is currently in use".

I have no clue how to get on. Can anyone help?

How did you get the DDE onto your Pi? It sounds like you may have unzipped it on a non-RISC OS machine and then copied the files across; this won't work correctly. Copy the original Zip file onto the Pi and unzip it using SparkFS, and see whether that helps.
