With this release BPQ32 409u Beta is provided as an installer.
From the beta document:
7.16 05/May/2006: BPQ32TNC2.dll has been updated.
BPQ32 is now packaged as an installer using the Nullsoft Scriptable
Install System http://nsis.sourceforge.net/Main_Page. Lane Wilson,
VE7IHL, wrote the bulk of the code for the BPQ32 installer. The
installer offers many options during the install procedure. The
intention was to make these options clear, however I realize that those
not as immersed in BPQ32 as I may not agree. During this beta process
users of the installer should offer suggestions to improve the install
process. For those who simply want to unpack the file suite, from among
the 6 options offered select only: “Do NOT perform any configurations.
Just un-pack the files.” If you do this the entire file suite, except
bpq32.dll, will be installed in your chosen directory, the default being
C:\Program File\BPQ32\. During this process a copy of bpq32.dll will be
written to your ‘system’ directory, which for W95/98/ME is
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM, for WNT/2K is C:\WINNT\system32 and for
WXP/2003Server is C:\WINDOWS\system32.
By default the default BPQ32 configuration is ‘minimal’. In the
configurations subdirectory there are 6 example configurations. Each of
the subdirectories has 8 files. If you simply copy these 8 files to your
root install directory (default C:\Program Files\BPQ32) you will have a
working BPQ32 system for said configuration. Whenever you make a
configuration change to bpqcfg.txt you should re-execute bpqcfg.exe to
make these changes effective.
If you wish to reinstall BPQ32 in a different directory, you should
first uninstall the existing installation so as to remove registry
entries which provide a path to BPQ32’s configurations. Failure to
uninstall could cause BPQ32 to either use prior configuration files or
not to find them at all. You can set or clear this information from the
registry by running SetRegistryPath.exe or ClearRegistryPath.exe should
you get in this predicament.
The installer generates an uninstaller named unist.exe and places it in
your chosen install directory. If you execute the uninstall, all of
BPQ32, except it’s source configuration files, will be removed from your
There is no downside in doing any number of repeated install/uninstall
operations. If you reinstall to the same directory, any existing
contents of that directory with the same filenames will be overwritten.
