If you need to move the BKSETUP file to a different computer, then download the two part version below instead of the large one part version above. It is in two parts so you can put the files on diskettes. If you do not pick the large one piece file above, then you need BOTH parts of BKSETUP below to get the current version. After you download both parts, RUN the bksetup.exe file and it will also run the second part automatically. Instead of the first two lines below, you could pick the option above to download the whole program in one piece to your C: drive.

Download bksetup.w02 (part two) 13-Dec-00 1,391,742 bytes

Note: The file above is bksetup.w02 and there seems to be a bug in some web browsers that gives it the wrong name when downloading. If you have a problem, then click the above line with the RIGHT mouse button, then pick Save As and be sure the name is bksetup.w02 (w zero two). Or else you can rename the file after you download it.

The two lines below have the BKOTHER setup program which has BK with the Polish, Icelandic, Russian, Slovak, Afrikaans, Czech, Portuguese, and Spanish languages. If you do not want those languages, then get the regular version above.

The line below is to download BTRHELP to fix STAT errors in BK5. If you need BTRHELP then download BTRHLP18.ZIP and unzip it (using WINZIP or PKUNZIP) into the directory that contains your data files and read the FIXBK.DOC file for directions. Btrhelp is a DOS program so run it from a MS-DOS prompt. Note that you do NOT need BTRHELP to fix stat error 58 or any error over 1000. Also BTRHELP is only to fix BK5 files, it does not fix BK6 files.
