finally found the list, I have installed pskmail and fldigi on windows 7, when 
I first tried to install pskmail windows said I did not have permission to 
change the x86 folder, not sure why as my login was administrator, anyway, I 
figured if I ran the installer using run as administrator it may be better, 
well it was, it seemd to install fine.


However when I try to run pskmail I get the following message in a pop up box 
"Message:configuration XML (access denied) from class: class java.io.file not 
found exception problems with config peramiter" if I close that I get "could 
not store setting: Beacon", then another box with the same message and "Icon" 
as the setting value.


I know a little about Pc's but not quite enough to get round this one it seems, 
the operating system is windows 7 home premium 64bit 2.1g cpu 4m memory, my 
guess there may be a permissions issue or something with the java that is 
causing a problem I have Java 6 update 20 displayed in add remove programs list 
for 32 bit, and 6 update 14 for the 32bit program. the program I am running is 
"c:\program files (x86)\pskmail\javapskmail.jar".


I am sure there may be some real obvious information you need that I have 
forgotten to tell you, if so please let me know and I will provide it as soon 
as I can, I have a trip in a few weeks and would like to have this working.


Thanks for any help.
