[aprssig] WINAPRS AND A XP MACHINE

I am presently running WinAPRS Version 2.7.6 with PM 3.0 on my XP Home Ed
operating system.  Have not encountered any XP problems.  As a matter of
fact, WinAPRS is much more stable on XP, than any previous OS.  I normally
shut my computer down when I go to bed but my wife has run it for up to 10
days straight while I am out hunting without any problems!  I am not saying,
WinAPRS never hangs up but it is a rare occasion.  My computer does hang up
once in a while even when not running WinAPRS so, I can't blame WinAPRS for
any hang-ups.

I have also run WinAPRS Versions 2.5.1 and 2.7.5 on this computer without
any problems.

Looks to me, you have a problem with your machine or you are not loading
things properly.
