Mind if I ask what you're doing? I'm curious because I've been into this stuff for long enough to remember what an 8085 is.
At 41 I am back in school for electronics. I am taking a microprocessors class and we use them in our trainers for very VERY basic assembly language programs. I just wanted to run some things in a simulator before trying them on the real deal. Plus, it's so much FASTER to write the programs in the simulator. Just point and click.
I have tried a couple of programs already and even unzipping them was a hassle. Plus, when I finally got them unzipped, and opened the program, error messages flew at me faster than I have ever seen. At one point I had dozens of error windows on the desktop. The guy that teaches my A+ certification class told me that simulators often have problems with a new OS. He suggested I either go with the virtual machine, or try to find one either written or updated for Windows 7.
