George,

I'm glad to hear that somebody is trying NETINST.  It's been rewritten
completely since beta 3.  (That's right -- all of the old code tossed, and
new code written from scratch.)  It's actually just SETUP copied and
renamed, but we had to add a lot of code to SETUP to make it function in
either capacity.

As for the report about XP, does this mean that you believe the digital
signature is OK?  It's very hard to tell from here, because I see neither
warning that there is no signature, nor confirmation that there is one.  I
have signed SETUP.EXE (rather SETUP-DBT-BETA20040706.EXE), and will have to
get in touch with Verisign if this turns out not to be working as it should.

- Peter

Hi Peter,

You'll be delighted to know that Beta 4 installed OK as a demo on to a
virgin Windows XP Professional system with the latest Release candidate of
Service Pack 2.

(Let me know if you want me to activate in any particular way - I usually
copy my license over, and re-install, but that may not be the best for
testing)

It's also gone on to my XP Home laptop, though I was confused by being told
that it was de-activating, since once installed, both Beta and Autobuild
appear to run OK.

I still don't know why on my XP Home laptop it does not default check the
SWIFT or BANA Template option, nor if checked does it error, and nor does it
install those Templates into Word's structure.

W 2003 Server next as well as a netinst, so standbye.

George.
