      If you are already using BPQ32 for anything else, load those programs first, then start ARESDATA in a dos box/cmd window. I'd recommend running BPQTerminal as a minimum, so you can connect to ARESDATA to test.
      You can just start ARESDATA in a dos box. BPQ32 will be loaded as ARESDATA initialises.
      I should have made clear before that this all applies to Windows 2000 and later.

      So you run BPQ32 in windows first then ARESDATA. Is this correct?

      I've made a couple of changes to the bpq1632 files to make them easier to use with ARESDATA.
      Download the bpq1632.zip from this YAHOO group.
      Copy bpq1632.dll to your Windows\system32 folder.
      Copy bpq1632.exe and dedhost.com to your ARESDATA folder.
      Edit ARESDATA.CFG to use BPQ (uncomment the relevant attach line).
      I edited the AREASDATA.BAT  to contain:
      rem ARESDATA.BAT.
      rem This loads the BPQ32 Interface
      rem This loads the terminate and stay resident program that makes the
      rem BPQ switch speak DED host mode, using software interrupt hex FE (254)
      rem with 9 connects available, start with stream 1, use application 3
      rem    (ARES/Data), and 40 K available for buffering DED packets.
      DEDHOST 9 1 4 40 254 N
      This is set to use BPQ APPL 3 - change the 3rd Param of DEDHOST to suit.
      It is best to create a shortcut to AREASDATA.BAT, and set "Run In Separate Memory space" in the advanced properties. Then the bpq interface will be unloaded when the program exits.
      It works as far as I can see, though I don't know what the program is supposed to do, so I can't be sure!
