Re: Windows Vista and Windows Seven Installation

Thanks for the info Krol.

Have moved the folder, updated to 5.5 and everything appears to be hunky dory. Nice.

Re: Windows Vista and Windows Seven Installation

Thanks for the advice.

Question Re: WinSPMBT v5.5-- NOW AVAILABLE

Hi,

Quick question. I'm running version 5.02 which I updated to a while ago. Can I go straight to 5.5 or will I have missed something?

Thanks.
