RE: [BPQ32] BPQ32 works on Windows Server 2008 64 bit
Yes it has. Thanks, but I do a ton of other things with the box other than bpq. That’s why I run the Enterprise version of 03.
What I’m using works fine, I guess I need to just keep my $$$ in my pocket and let it do its thing.
I am running a quad 64 so I’d like to go to 64 bit on a couple of programs that get hammered a lot.
thanks, 73 Dave
Hi Dave, it's been a while... it's the Enterprise Standard version if memory serves me correct. For this type of stuff i'm sure you would be good with any version.

Which version of 08 are you using? Standard or what? I use 2003 enterprise and wouldn’t mind going up.
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!
