EmuCR:Bochs Bochs v2.5 Emulator (SMP package for Windows) is released. Bochs is a highly portable open source IA-32 (x86) PC emulator written in C++, that runs on most popular platforms. It includes emulation of the Intel x86 CPU, common I/O devices, and a custom BIOS. Currently, Bochs can be compiled to emulate a 386, 486, Pentium/PentiumII/PentiumIII/Pentium4 or x86-64 CPU including optional MMX, SSEx and 3DNow! instructions.

Bochs is capable of running most Operating Systems inside the emulation including Linux, DOS, Windows® 95/98 and Windows® NT/2000/XP or Windows Vista. Bochs was written by Kevin Lawton and is currently maintained by this project.

Bochs can be compiled and used in a variety of modes, some which are still in development. The 'typical' use of bochs is to provide complete x86 PC emulation, including the x86 processor, hardware devices, and memory. This allows you to run OS's and software within the emulator on your workstation, much like you have a machine inside of a machine. For instance, let's say your workstation is a Unix/X11 workstation, but you want to run Win'95 applications. Bochs will allow you to run Win 95 and associated software on your Unix/X11 workstation, displaying a window on your workstation, simulating a monitor on a PC.

Bochs v2.5 Emulator (SMP package for Windows) Changelog:

This package contains a Bochs executable compiled with Pentium 4 and SMP
support enabled. An existing Bochs installation of the same version is
required. By default it starts with one CPU and you can use the cpu count
option to enable more processors. Bochs currently supports up to 8 CPUs.
NOTE: The SMP feature in Bochs is still incomplete. Some of the SMP-aware
operating systems will work, other may still fail.

CPU count format: "cpu: count=PROCESSORS:CORES:THREADS"
cpu: count=2:2:1 # 2 cpus with 2 cores per cpu
