What is SMSQmulator?

SMSQmulator is an emulator of a machine that runs SMSQ/E. SMSQ/E is an operating system initially designed for machines compatible with the Sinclair QL, a home/business computer invented in the UK in the 1980s. It has a processor of the Motorola 68000 family.

SMSQmulator emulates such a processor and, whilst not emuatong a Sinclair QL, it emulates an ideal machine inspired by it..

SMSQmulator is written in Java, you this must have a Java runtime environment. If you don't, you can get it here for free


Here you can download everything related to version 2.16 of SMSQmulator.

1 - Everything you need to run SMSQmulator:

Unsure which version is for you?
Then download and run the version for Java 8 first. If this doesn't run on your machine, download the version for java 7 and try that. If this still doesn't run on your machine, download the version for java 6 and try that (1).

These files are zip fles and need to be unzipped once downloaded.

There is a readme file (as a PDF or ODT document) in the smsqmulator directory : please read this carefully!!!!

There is also a UserGuide pdf file in that same directory.

(1) Sooner or later I'm going to drop the support for java 6. Please upgrade your java version!
