Post Primo Browser?

I was trying to work with Primo the past 2 weeks, when I had downloaded the Linux Version. I only have Windows and I know that Primo cannot work on Windows. Is there any other program like Primo or is there a Browser version (not an executable file) for Primo? I don't really run into a lot of problems now, so please help me on this one.

  1. Install Virtual Box in Windows.
  2. Install Debian in Virtual Box.
  3. Install Primo in Debian.

(Assumes you have 64 bit Windows)

Virtual Box was easy to download. I'm confused about Debian.

You will need the AMD64 iso. I mostly use net-install. Failing that, the first couple of DVDs will do. You might instead burn a Ubuntu Linux iso image, which I think is one DVD and install that from Virtual Box -- careful that you do not overwrite Windows -- this is the whole point of using Virtual Box. You needn't use DVDs as you can "burn" the image to a USB pen drive.

I have not use Virtual Box for a while -- you may be able to download a Ubuntu iso image (for free) and install directly into Virtual Box without having to burn it to media.

Exactly, you can mount an .ISO image saved on the host PC as media in the guest OS. It was very easy when I did it a couple of years ago.

My computer automatically blocks me from running the file there. Apperently claims those files are save. They should be, right?

What ? ...what is the problem now ? Problems with ***.in ?

In the headline are 5 symbols. in the middle you can create a new one. Put in your number and close. " LOAD " (under certification) the new file and ...........wait ............

Try N=10^101+3 ...Maybe the characters are invalid .e.g. "." instead of "*"
