      Message 2 of 8 , May 1, 2009

        It seems to be all good news as far as Windows 7 is concerned.

         

        I was running Vista and BPQ32 ran fine in that so long as I didn’t use agwtobpq.exe which would run but frequently crash. Now I am running Windows 7 RC1 with the optional ‘XP Mode’ (a kind of virtual XP to make 7 completely backwards compatible for apps that had trouble with Vista). With this all components of BPQ run just fine (well, after 5 days testing anyway). 

         

        Anyone running XP now but who has to eventually contemplate changing OS (eg new computer), I suggest bypassing Vista and waiting for the official release of Windows 7. It’s supposed to be out last quarter 2009 or early 2010.

        You are the first to report that BPQ32 runs on Windows Server 2008.  I had heard that WS2008 was 'Vista like', however clearly it goes beyond Vista in having the WoW 32 bit emulation mode.  The installer I use is the NSIS system http://nsis.sourceforge.net/Main_Page

        It installs bpq32.dll in the appropriate (depending upon the particular OS from Win95 thru XP).  Apparently it knows also where this belongs in WS2008, and maybe Vista too.  Credit the NSIS package with the needed smarts.

        But what all this comes down to is the relentless move to Vista and then Windows 7.  I do not look forward to the changes which will likely have to be made in BPQ32 and likely also the installer.  I have several ham programs which fail to work in Vista and so far I am hiding my head in the sand as I reverted to XP!

        Many may find this interesting, i'm running BPQ on Windows Server 2008 64bit and it's working just fine.

        With the 64bit version the 32 bit code of BPQ and other programs i'm running execute via the WoW (Windows on Windows) 32 bit emulation... BPQ code is obvioulsy 32 bit code.

        I'm also running AR-Cluster and AGW PE Pro on this same setup... all of this code is working fine through the 32bit WoW emulation. AR-Cluster and AGWPE have been running fine like this for months. Very, very reliable on the server class machine I use.

        One thing of interest is that when BPQ was installed with Ron's installer, the bpq32.dll was automatically installed here:

        C:\Windows\SysWOW64

        So the OS knows you are installing 32 bit code and it takes care of the location of the install.

        Ron mentioned that there have been questions about running BPQ on Vista, so this should give us a good idea that it would work where Windows 2008 is using a similar Vista OS kernal.

            In windows 7 there is a windows XP implented.
            So programs made for XP should also run fine in Windows 7.

            You need the PRO/ultimate version of 7 for this to work.
