Paradise v7.1 beta [WinXP *FIX*]

Just writing to let you know that I've just managed to get Paradise working on my XP setup
You just need to use a program called UserPort that lets dos applications (among others) bang the serial and parallel ports directly like on the good old win9x. You can get it here http://www.epsilon.com.pl/test/index.php?page=download -- just scroll down a bit. Instalation is dead easy and involves copying one file to the %windows%\system32\drivers folder. Then all you have to do is start the program's GUI and press Start!.
Then just load up the cmd console and enjoy
There is a sligh nuisance when transfering files with long names. You cannot send such files by typing:

paradise.exe a_Really_LONG_filename.lha

because the program will exit saying it cannot find it *BUT* if you try to send a directory with a name consistnig of 8 or less characters with that file in it it will happily start the transfer and you'll end up with a nice long name on the amiga drive

So for example:

G:\Amiga\text
2006-11-05 21:56 <DIR> .
2006-11-05 21:56 <DIR> ..
2006-03-27 11:56 540˙859 ttx.lha
2005-03-06 00:21 543˙571 ttx.zip
2006-03-27 11:56 22˙146 TTX2Booster0_1.lha
2006-10-31 21:42 550˙250 EvenMore.lha
2006-10-31 21:38 12˙470 Guideance.lha
2006-10-31 21:39 71˙539 guidemaster12.lha
2006-10-31 21:41 149˙303 Next.lha
2006-10-31 21:41 4˙662 searchguidecf.lha
2006-10-31 21:42 60˙117 TextView125.lha

G:\Amiga\text\paradise TTX2Booster0_1.lha
doesn't work but

G:\Amiga\paradise text
will and send all the files in that directory preserving the long names.
wierd I know

I tried overcoming this by using the setver.exe like so:
setver PARADISE.EXE 7.1
but it didn't help.

I still think it's a minor problem. NO MORE BOOTING INTO DOS

Just a suggestion but you could try:

paradise.exe "a_Really_LONG_filename.lha"

I think you really need to use "" with names that have spaces.

Um... what's the proggy called you need to DL? I can't seem to find it on that page... and I'm not very fluent in Polish, as I'm Norwegian, living in UK

I've uploaded it to The Zone! The program is called UserPort. Dead easy to install and setup.
