The Latest BPQ32 Installer for Windows, BPQ32_6.0.19.1_20190925, is available for download from the BPQ32 Groups.IO.

John Wiseman, G8BPQ/GM8BPQ, has created a common code base for BPQ32, allowing both Windows (BPQ32) and Linux (LinBPQ) versions, including Raspberry PI, to be produced in a timely fashion.

Here are the: Linux versions.

Updates have been made to:

bpq32.dll
BPQMail.exe
BPQChat.exe

BPQAPRS.exe

BPQTerminal.exe

HTMLPages

 

Here is the: Changelog.

BPQ32 has a basic Web Interface option. This provides Browser access to some node status displays, and a simple Web Terminal for access to the Network. It can also act as Web Server for other BPQ32 Applications, such as BPQAPRS

BPQAPRS is an APRS mapping and messaging application. BPQAPRS at its current state of development is a viable replacement for UIView32 for many users and in addition is under active development to add additional capability. The BPQ32 digipeater is "New n-N Paradigm " compliant and provides enough objects to fully support the Local Info Initiative. A configuration example is provided to quickly get you 'on the air'. The BPQAPRS program provides mapping, using the on-line OpenStreetMap, as well as reliable messaging, to the degree this is possible, with the existing infrastructure.

As a reminder, you must have all of your node configuration in BPQ32.cfg.  If you are still using the old method please read message #10713 for further details.

Microsoft has, since the introduction of Windows XP, recommended that an installation be split in to a "program files" part and an "application data" part. This was not enforced in Windows XP but it is being enforced in Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 10. Many programs have been installed in the root, such as C:\Ham Programs to get around this recommendation, but the result is annoying UAC popups...'do you really trust this program' etc. If you have used this workaround, you can, after installing this release, do an uninstall, which will preserve your configuration, and then repeat the install taking all the defaults. The result will be to divide your installation properly into %programfiles%\bpq32 and %appdata%\bpq32.

In Windows-10 File Explorer by default the %appdata%\bpq32 folder is hidden.  To make this visible in Explorer at the 'View' tab select 'Hidden items'.  I believe it is also useful to select 'Item check boxes'.

Help will be available in the BPQ32 Users Group should you have questions.

Thanks to John Wiseman G8BPQ/GM8BPQ for his tireless work enhancing BPQ32!

Hi All
 
Downloaded the latest installer but cannot get it to work. First AVG didn’t like it but overcome that and then the following error
“Windows cannot access the specified device, path or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item” see the Screenshot.
