Re: Simple starter
- Hi Ron -
I am brand new to BPQ and am trying to set up a packet node
demonstration for Field Day. My ultimate objective is to use AGWPE
with BPQ. I'm using a laptop running Win 98SE.
I followed the directions below up to the point of starting
BPQTerminal.exe. When I did that, I get a message window
saying "Can't load (or register) custom control: "BPQCtrl.ocx'" and
BPQTerminal closes. How can I fix this?
Also, I would like some pointers on how to go from the configuration
this installation produces to a configuration using AGWPE. I do have
AGWPE installed and working.
Tnx and 73 - Dick, W3OA
