RE: [BPQ32] installer for BPQ
once here look under description
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> see RED LINK 73 I had to be directed to it as well.. Do not feel bad about not seeing….
A user group established by John Wiseman G8BPQ/GM8BPQ and Ron Stordahl AE5E (ex N5IN) for BPQ32 - AX.25 NET/ROM compatible node software for Windows.
BPQ for DOS and BPQ32 for Windows were written by John Wiseman G8BPQ/GM8BPQ and have a considerable following of appreciative users.
BPQ32 includes BPQMailChat, a modern BBS and Chat system.
BPQ32 offers three program interfaces. The DLL interface is the fundamental and most capable interface and is recommended for new applications. An AGW-like front end interface is offered permitting BPQ32 to be used with any program currently supporting AGWPE. The third, now deprecated, interface method is ActiveX.
An AGW back end interface has been added to allow BPQ32 to use sound card modems.
Many useful BPQ32 utilites are included.
I'm sorry John, I do not see the link, unless I am looking for the wrong thing. I also checked the links page and didn't see anything that looked like an installer there either.

There are links to the Installer from the Yahoo BPQ32 group page. The installer has become too big for the files section of the group.
I'd suggest anyone setting up BPQ32 for the first time use the Installer. It makes sure files are in the right places and creates the needed registry entries.
Since this installer is not posted, how would one obtain a copy?
There are at least two AF MARS members trying to set up BPQ to upgrade our legacy message forwarding network, one newbe and one switching over from Airmail.
Would this program make setup of BPQmailchat and nodes easier or is this for something else?

Subject: [BPQ32] Small change to the installer made...
It was discovered that in rare cases when doing an update over an
already updated installation, which was also running at the time, the
installer failed to detect the running BPQ32. The effect apparently was
to only require a reboot.
However anyone who downloaded the installer prior to the time of this
message would be well advised to download again.
As to why there is no posting of the installer, as is usually the case,
in the files section, the installer has become larger than the maximum
file size Yahoo allows to be uploaded to the files section.
I am looking at a way around this.

Quote! I said REGULAR type B Bulletin messages. Due to the way John worded his message. I didn't say WP B messages.
