A question that is not related to this particular version, but ...:
Recently I realized that I have some issues with BPQ+FBB under WinXP
that do not happen under Win2k (the same type of installation both).
Well, regardless BPQ32 is already active or not, an activation of FBB
causes opening a small window entitled 'Program to hold BPQ32.dll in
memory' (that does not happen uder Win2k). When I close FBB manually
that window does not close. When I re-start FBB again (or after the
housekeeping), another window entitled 'Program to hold BPQ32.dll in
memory' appears, so they are two, etc.
Besides that, after some 5-10 minutes of telnet forwarding via the
Internet, it seems that FBB somehow loses its dirmes.sys file and asks
me if I want it to create another one (which, again, does not happen
under Win 2000). But whatever I answer (Y/N), in the next minute or two
the bbs failures and closes. After the next activation, it starts with
an empty dirmes.sys file, so the number of available messages is set to
Any explanation of those funny things? Btw, my WinXP and Win2k is a
dual-boot system, where each of them have their own installation of
BPQ32 (C:\BPQ32 and D:\BPQ32 respectively), as well as their own
installations of FBB, (though they share FBB's system files on D disk,
which is W2k's FAT32 partition). Btw, generally speaking, what folder is
better for BPQ: ..\Program Files\BPQ32, or in the root of a partition
(like C:\BPQ32). Under W2000 I can start BPQ32 from within
non-administrative account but under WinXP it asks for admin. rights to
