took me ages to get this to work, and I was never quite sure what I changed to
get it going. I suggest first you make sure that your BPQ32 installation
is working, say using BPQTerminal. Then import someone's working FBB
configuration. As you probably know, all the important FBB configuration is
held in the registry, in key [HKEY_LOCAL_ MACHINE\Software \WinFbb].
WinFBB exports it's configuration as a regedit-compatible text file. So all
you need to do is get someones file, rename it with a .reg extension, and
double-click it. Of course you will then have to change callsigns, identities,
etc to suit your station, but at least you will be starting from a working
system. It might be wise to remove any existing WinFBB entry from the registry
first (usual warnings about using regedit apply!).
you'd like to try this approach, I'll send you my fbb
For many years I have been successfully running older
BPQ and FBB.
Switching to the 32-bit versions is not as straight
as I expected and I would appreciate some help.
Running under Windows XP pro.
Installed FBB32 and updated
to the .35 version.
Replaced BPQ.DLL in FBB by John's 'improved'
Installed BPQ32 and updated to the May2006 version.
TNC is a
Configured FBB in the Ports section to BPQ and (virtual)
BPQ is also set to virtual port 8.
Real port is set to com1,
connected to the PK232.
When activating FBB in TEST mode, all appears
working just fine.
After unticking Test Mode and activating FBB
it brings up BPQ (4.09u rev. 3 - March 2006) saying
loaded and initialised OK".
Next, FBB starts up but at line five (?)
v TNC config ()
where the tick is in grey, the hour-glass
and nothing further happpens.
This gives me the impression the
TNC (BPQ) cannot be
loaded or initialised correctly.
I have been
battling for many months to get the combo
working. Making a little
progress at times.
N9PMO's recent "Instr. and Setup Instr. for WinFBB
Alpha" was most helpful and much appreciated.
Also, my thanks
to N5IN for allowing this off topic subject
to be discussed
