You "may" get a warning from your Anti-Virus software but it is a "False Positive" resulting from the inclusion "wimgtool-os9.exe" & "wimgtool-rsdos.exe", which have self-modifying code that throws a warning with some protection software. There are NO viruses in these packages!!!

This is a bug fix from the previous release as the arrow keys could not be mapped to the joysticks. I've also fixed the version numbers.

New features/fixes for VCC v2.1.0d Jul/2021
◦ Fixed bug which cause certain RSDOS word processors (EliteWord, VIP Writer, etc.) to skip every other line of text. -
James Rye

◦ Reset a few "default" values that had gotten changed. - Bill Pierce
◦ Add a "Custom KeyMap Editor" for making custom keymaps. - EJ Jaquay
◦ Mapped "BREAK" to "F12" (as well as "ESCAPE") to facilitate using used by some

VCC 2.1.0c

This is an updated release of VCC 2.1.0c in which the missing control key sequences were not being copied to the VCC screen when using the "Edit/Paste Text" feature. The "Paste Text" control key sequences now work correctly.
If you do not want to do a complete reinstall of VCC and only need the update, download the zip file version and extract the "VCC.exe" file into your current VCC installation folder and your update will be complete. Do this ONLY if you installed the VCC 2.1.0c release before the bug fix. Do NOT do this if you are using a previous release other than VCC 2.1.0c, use a complete install instead.

NEW Features for this Edition of VCC:
• New 2nd Hard Drive
We couldn’t let Mame outdo us with 2 hard drives, so we added another one!
• Control CPU speed with &
You can decrease the CPU speed with and increase the CPU speed with F4.
• Key bug fixed
Before, if you attempted to use the combos, certain combos would try to open the VCC menus and cause strange problems. This has been fixed.
• Remember Screen Size
VCC will now remember your current screen size after exiting the program and return it to this size the next time you run VCC. This has been a long awaited enhancement.
• GMC (Game Master Cart)
We added John Linville’s “Game Master Cart” (GMC), which allows ROM based game development with “Syd Chip” type sound and music.
• Border Color Bug Fixed
The wrong border color was displaying in most alternate color sets. This has now been fixed.
• Improved VCC Manual
I have reorganized this manual a little better to make navigation easier. I also added the much requested “Quick Start Guide”.

VCC 2.1.0b

New Features:
• Copy/Paste
Probably the most requested feature added to VCC. You can now Copy from the VCC screen to the PC clipboard or Paste to the VCC screen from the PC clipboard just as if you typed the data in by hand! (see the “Edit” menu section for details)
• Persistent Filepaths
VCC will now remember all your ROM, DLL, Disk, VHD, Cassette, & Cart/Pak directories individually. No more browsing from one directory to another each time you load a different item. This is a change I personally have wanted for quite a few years! All current filepaths are save to the configuration file and remembered each time you run VCC.
• Custom Config Save/Load
In solving the problem users were having on Windows 8 & above with having to use “Administrator’s Permission” to make VCC properly save the Config file, we broke the ability to have more than one VCC installation with different configurations. The new Save/Load Config menu has been activated allowing you to save custom configurations and load any configuration you want after starting VCC. (See “Menus/File/Save Config” & “Menus/File/Load Config” for details)
• Load Custom Config from Cmd Line
After several requests, we have added the ability to load a custom configuration from the command line in a Windows Command box. (see “Starting VCC” at the end of the previous “Installation” section)
• Flip Artifact Colors
VCC now allows you to “Flip” the artifact colors on the PMODE graphics screens to the alternate color set without interrupting the emulation. Just click “Configuration/Flip Artifact Colors” on the menu bar and the alternate color set will be activated without interrupting your program.
• .Slightly Better Composite Palettes
The composite palettes have been altered to be a little better, but still not correct.
• Improved VCC Manual
I have reorganized this manual a little better to make navigation easier. I also added the much requested “Quick Start Guide”.

VCC 2.1.0a

Thanks to a couple of members of the Coco Community, we have now resolved the permissions issue with the "VCC.ini" file and it has been moved to the user's "appdata" folder where it can be altered without administrator's privilages.
Also, the "Force Aspect" item in the "Config/Display" menu now works... HOWEVER, it does not work in full screen mode (this is being worked on). You must activate (check) "Allow Resize" and "Force Aspect" then you can drag the edges of VCC to the desired size and it will maintain the proper Coco size aspect. This also works with Windows screen "Maximize"
I have also updated the VCC manual to reflect these changes and have tried to correct all version # conflicts :-)
