[aprssig] Pm maps 3.5, winaprs ?

 I got this version to run on windows 98 and Windows XP. I do recall that to
get it to run under XP there needed to be a file added to the operating
system that is not included with XP and is for 95 and 98. Here is the text
of the message I received from a friend who helped get it running under XP:

 Here's what you need to do:
Copy the attached mfcans32.dll to the Windows\System (not System32)
directory (this is the secret missing file!)
Copy the standard oc30.dll & mapocx.ocx to the same folder
Then do the regsrv32 mapocx.ocx  - Boom! You're done!

He sent me the file but I believe you can get it from the microsoft site.
Hope this helps you guys.

Brian,
2.7.6 won't work either for some reason.  Looking at
my previous post, do you have any other pointers for
me?  Maybe I missed something with the 2.7.6 release.
Maybe where I put the 2.7.6 as you point out.  I will
try that and see what happens.
