2020 - The year PowerBBS returned. What else could you expect from 2020?
PowerBBS will run under Windows 7 and prior versions. Windows 10 does not support 16-bit programs, and the config program still is 16-bit.
Download the PowerBBS December 15th, 2020 compile!
Unzip the latest powerbbs files.
You will find four files.
1. pbbs_legacy_intall.zip is the old install program. Unzip this into a temp directory, then run SETUP.EXE from that directory. Tell setup to install the 32-bit version and the registered version.
2. copy BBSC2_32.DLL and PBBSF32 to \windows\system.
3. copy powrbbs.exe to \powrbbs
4. Login to the support bbs and then enter an e-mail asking for your free serial number. Tell us the SYSOP name you are using.
