Sorry, I can not check it, I am not an NT specialist.
Is somebody out there who knows about this stuff?

The Systemoperator is buisy for the next week with more urgend problems.
Even the old Kit does not work anymore.

Unfortunately, the general description did not warn. It is not even
mentioned what has to be done if an older version is installed.

Good software should install itself provisorial, and set
into full action only before deleating anything else. So I'm really
very unhappy with your Connectivity Kit. It seemingly does not
provide a choice between Kermit and XMODEM. Have you ever tried to
upload a 50 KB-file with your Kit? It is also not good that the Calculator
must wait in Server mode unnecessarily long. Do you know how expensive
are AAA-batteries in Germany?

In my opinion, the software does not concentrate on the essentials,
namely doing the transfer. For instance, why should it be able to
purge on the PC or the Calculator? This can much quicker be
done on the mashines itself. In my opinion, the Kit makes itself
unnecessarily dependent on the WinNT-tools.
