Hi Mineo and the group,  I'm not sure what you mean that GSC.EXE will not
work in Vista.  I am running WISP32 in Vista Business and both GSC.EXE and

I didn't realize there was a problem, but that may be because of the way I
install WISP32.   I don't!

>From a working version of WISP32 on and older XP computer or from a backup

1 - copy the entire C:\WISP32 folder to the C: drive of Vista because I'm
too lazy to reconfigure the QTH, radio, rotator and individual satellites
etc that is required with a new clean install.

2 - on the XP computer, export the entire WISP32 registery

3 - on the Vista PC import the WISP32 registery - you may want to have set a
restore point before doing this :-)

Create your shortcuts and enjoy...

I use this technique every time I'm forced to rebuild my XP or Vista images
which is a couple of times a year because I often do one too many tweaks and
end up breaking my whole O/S.

73, Alan VE4YZ

I confirmed that gsc.exe could not work on Windows Vista.
We can setup seemingly WiSP on Vista, but gsc.exe can not run with a error
message. I guess that the correct setup information are not written into
