    [solved] IDA 6.1 and Bochs

    Hi,

    i am trying to setup IDA PRO to run with Bochs, but no luck.

    OS: xp sp3 x86 VM
    IDA: IDA PRO 6.1 (leaked version, no way i can afford the real deal...yet)
    Bochs: latest 2.6.2 (but i also tried some older versions)

    Trouble starts when i try to setup Bochs. According to the bochs tutorial on the IDA homepage, i am suppsoed to speicify the path to bochdbg.exe in the advanced debugger options.
    Tough luck, that option simply does not exist (see screenshot).

    When i select IDB mode and try to run it anyways, i get two error messages ("failed to run bochs...", see screenshot). IDA freezes for several settings, dumps below text to the output and presents me with debugger settings (screenshot).
    Ida output:

    What do i do wrong? Wrong Bochs version?
    As i said, ai tried a couple of older ones, too. Which version is advised for 6.1 use?


    Hope someone can help me out here!
