    Ah! check the key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE SOFTWARE G8BPQ BPQ32 BPQMailChat BaseDir. I think you will find it contains C: Program Files BPQ32 BPQMailChat . Remove

    Ah!
     
    check the key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\G8BPQ\BPQ32\BPQMailChat\BaseDir. I think you will find it contains C:\Program Files\BPQ32\BPQMailChat\. Remove the \ from the end, and it should be ok.
     
    It's getting late here. I'll issue a fix to the software in the morning.

    Hi John Just checked.. That is what they both show MailCHat 1.0.4.45 and BPQ32 is 5.2.1.3

    When I did install I shutdown rebooted and started up without anything running by disabling Startup Delayer.. Installed and turned on Startup Delayer and rebooted…

    I am now rebooting again.. Just curious as to what that will do.

    Jerry,

    Are you sure you are running the MailChat from the installer, rather than the one  I sent you? It should be in the MailChat folder. Check that mailchat is 1.0.4.45 and bpq32.dll 5.2.1.3

    This is not happening here, and I ran it on my Win2003 SR2 Server just as you did! I know that john put in additional code into BPQMailChat to deal with 'unusual' installations. Were you running a beta release after the 20110411 release...John would have had to update you with some special task images in such a case.

      I can't get it to fail here, though I'm using Airmail 3.3.081.
       
      Is this using packet or pactor?
       
      And does it fail on all messages?
