That’s right. In context to my other comments, I understand how this could be confusing.
They don’t want to change the application. They want to be able to automatically control it through the GUI, by moving the mouse and pressing mouse buttons through software. I’ve been led to believe that this is possible by someone who should know. This would require the development system and documentation.
I hope I’ve explained this confusion.
The QNX computers control hardware. There is no documentation on how this works. Reverse engineering doesn’t seem likely. The company that built the machine is long gone. The client is stuck with the existing software. The cost to replace this hardware is in the 7-8 figure area.
C86 hasn’t come up as an issue yet. I still have a running C86 if becomes necessary.
Thanks for your input.
