• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

other then UASD for 396T?

Uniden Advanced Scanner Director sucks and it doesn't even work with windows 98...
I can't back up my sys configuration on the pc, the button "SAVE" doesn't even appear!?!

What other software can I use to program and most important, to back up my configuration on a PC with windoze 98?

Thanks

Butel has a free backup utility that works great. heres the website:

www.butel.nl

You may want to check the wiki also

Just a note: the Butel programming software for the 396 (Arc 396+pro) needs Windows 2000 and lots of ram to run well (512mb) although I am running with 128mb of ram and it does ok.

As far as Butel's ARC, I'm running an old PII 333 and WinXP just because of that one software provider. ~heh~ The PC's kind of slow, but it runs (I've got a boat load of RAM which helps).

Notice, guys, that he's running Win98. mauka, I think your only option is the Scancat series. I don't know much about them. I don't even know if they can back up. http://www.scancat.com/

Mauka you should install http://exuberant.ms11.net/98sesp.html it's designed for old timers like you. It might help iwth some of your modern software incompatiblities since it modernizes windows 98se as much as humanly possible as listed in it's changes...A little off topic but not really, if it solves your problems with the software's behavior on windows 98 it's a win. If not, it'll at least bring your ancient box one step closer to modern technology (software wise anyways)
