There are lots of options. You can run 'old' DOS BPQ applications in 2K/XP systems using BPQ1632. See the files section for the software. Version 7.01 of WinFBB will interface directly to BPQ32. I'm about to release a replacement for TFWIN and TFWIN32/TF2AGW which will allow 16 or 32bit versions of WFBB to use BPQ32. If you are still running AK1A cluster that will work fine using BPQ1632. Or you can upgrade to either free or commercial Windows Cluster programs such as DXNet or AR-Cluster. Any of these would allow the user to select either BBS or DX.I don't know much about SatGate - how does that link to FBB?Regards,John-----Original Message-----

Glad to see you are returning to the scene again!
I am looking to run two networked computers, one
running FBB and the other running my Satgate, which
needs to talk to FBB, and also the AR-Cluster node.
This will have to be accessed over the network from
I was wondering if BPQ32 will cater for this? I was
going to try the old 4.08 but did not think it would

The RF feed for the Cluster node will be on the
Satgate machine, with it's own 70Mhz radio.

It's probably worth explaining the reason for the
change. There has always
been a problem with running AR-Cluster and other BPQ
AR-Cluster writes the "Config File Location" registry
value every time it
starts, so you can't put the BPQ files anywhere else.
The new "BPQ
Directory" key, apart from being a better description
(it points to things
other than the config file) gets round this problem,
and lets you put your
BPQ32 files wherever you like. I had intended the
change to be backward
compatible, but unfortunately messed it up.
While I'm here, I'll document another change. Almost
from the beginnings of
BPQ32 there has been a problem whereby if you ran two
or more BPQ
applications, you could stop and restart the second
and subsequent ones in
any order, but if you closed the first one, the system
would hang. This has
now been fixed.

The "Using Config From" message is new. It is intended
to make tracking down
config problems easier.
I've modified the config file search. What it is
supposed to do is look
first for the reg value "BPQ Directory". If that is
not present it looks for
"Config File Location". If that is not set, it looks
in the current
directory. This should be backward compatible with the
old version, as
"Config File Location" to c:\program
files\Ar-Cluster\BPQ32. If it fails to
find the files, it looks like something is not working
as I intended. Could
you send me a dump of the registry tree
