Transfer the image from unix to Windows
Last updated at 5:18 pm UTC on 16 January 2006
Some unix VM's add the line


to the image. This causes that "./squeak.image" will execute "/usr/bin/squeak ./squeak.image" if the executable bit is set. Older versions of the windows VM could not load such images (but the newer versions can).

You can delete the first 512 bytes with a hex editor, it can also easily be done by using the program "dd" on Linux/Unix - this oneliner will take "old.image" and produce "fixed.image" which lacks the first 512 bytes:

dd if=old.image of=fixed.image ibs=512 skip=1

...or you could simply download a newer Windows VM!
