4781Re: [BPQ32] BPQ 12/20 BPQMailChat fails
- Jan 2, 2011The Vista and Windows-7, both 32 and 64 bit, represents a challenge, one that could require some significant program changes.
What I would recommend is to save your configuration files, then uninstall BPQ32.
Now reinstall, but rather than taking the default install location of c:\program files\BPQ32, enter instead c:\Amateur Radio\BPQ32. This will get BPQ32 and it's associated files out of c:\program files\ or c:\program files (86)\. Microsoft applies certain restrictions in those directories which would require significant changes in the design of BPQ32 to operate smoothly.
I have taken this approach successfully with all of my Amateur Radio programs I have installed on Vista/Win-7. But my experience is limited with Vista/Win-7 I must admit.
I would like to hear of your results. Depending upon the results you have as well as reports from others I may modify the installer to detect an install attempt on those OS's and make this location selection automatic.
