What a special day today....20 years ago...yes twenty years...the very first version of clrmame was released. Back then it was a win32 commandline tool. 1999 cmwin, a first windows ui version was released and finally in 2000 clrmamepro came out. In 1997 MAME had no zip support, no merging and actually not even crc32 was used for hashing...good old times ;-) And today...look at that beauty of emulator. What a success, what a huge amount of emulated sets. Times are changing, I've tried to update cmpro as good as possible to keep track of the changes made in MAME. I'd like to thank all the users who supported me over the years...some of them from the beginning till today. Without you, I would have stopped cmpro a long time ago. So....keep me busy. Thanks again. And yeah...here's the latest version 4.033.
Since the homepage is now https, you need to download this update manually. The updater will work again once you have 4.033 installed

If you install cmpro to a protected folder like C:\program files\, you have to set the compatibility properties of cmpro.exe to 'run this program as administrator' to work correctly or you have to disable UAC. In other folders it should work fine without setting this property and without the need of disabling UAC.
If you got problems with the main window, set the option 'Adv_HideWindow = off' in cmpro.ini. In case
you don't have a cmpro.ini yet, create one with the following two lines:
Adv_HideWindow = off
Update your OS!
