more difficult than under earlier operating systems.

only the WinBasp shell installer winbasp.exe.
Do not use Baspwin1..4.zip.
They will cause
serious security conflicts with the Vista protection services.
All other programs, e.g. AirPhoto, RadCor, PerCor, CastCor may be
installed using their normal installers.

Special Note for the BASP Suite:
By default, the
winbasp.exe installer will install a shell program called
WinBaspShell.exe which runs all the other programs in the BASP suite
from one dialog box. If you have a permanent access code for the
older BASP version, this may also be used for the new shell.
The installer will offer to place all the files on C:\WINBASP.
You may change this to another drive or partition, and you may
also change the directory name, but that name must not be longer than 8
characters and must not
contain any blanks.
Programs except the BASP suite, help
Vista no longer directly supports the help file format used since
Windows 3.1 and up to and including Windows XP.
The BASP suite under WinBaspShell substitutes a compatible help file
processor where required so that the help files in that suite which
date back to 1994 can still be read.
The other programs, e.g. AirPhoto, PerCor, RadCor, CastCor, Slides0, AirRegister required
the use of a file called winhlp32.exe to display help information, but
in Vista, attempting to open help brings up an error message
stating that this is no longer supported. It refers the user to a
Microsoft Web site which explains in
great detail that a new compatible version can be downloaded from their
latest versions of AirPhoto, PerCor, RadCor, CastCor, Slides0, AirRegister use a Vista-compatible help file. Others will be modified as soon as possible. In the meantime:
Using winhlp32.exe from Windows

site when you get the Vista error message. You can also override the
Vista restrictions if you have access to a machine running Windows XP
a computer which has Windows XP Service Pack 2 or later
installed, go to the system partition and to the Windows directory.
Look for the file winhlp32.exe which is 283648 bytes in
size in the English version of Windows XP. The size may differ
slightly in other language versions. Copy this file to a diskette
or a CD.
On the Vista Windows directory, there is a small 9 kb file also
called winhelp32.exe. This is but a stub which takes you to the
error message cited above. You can not delete this file even as
an administrator in order to replace it with the XP full version.
You must take full control of it in order to do so. Please follow
