I wanted to download RespeQt so I Google'ed it to find the program's homepage. The first result is Github and i don't see any "install.exe" file.
So ... what am I suppose to do with all these files? They look like source code files.

So, the Atari Age forum is the official (unofficial?) distribution point for executable binary files?

Wow, that’s a story fit for a TV drama series.
Thanks for the historical insight. I’ll give it a whirl later tonight after work. Then I still have to order some hardware to build a cable.
I just noticed the forum post I linked to RespeQt 4.3 is just the executable binary. The complete set of windows files (docs, dll, etc) necessary to run can be downloaded with the previous release 4.2.1, courtesy of ebiguy, here: http://atariage.com/...beta/?p=4150092
RespeQt.exe 4.3 binary can be copied over previous version. RespeQT is click and run under Windows with no package installer required.

Hello, i downloaded version 1,2,3 and 4 òf RespeQT and want to use them on my Panasonic Toughbook CF-M34 (with touchscreen).
My CF-M34 had Windows XP pro with sp1 installed. 192MB ram memory, Pentium III 400Mhz and has a RS232 port. I want to use the old Sio2PC serial kabel connection.
Anyhow, RespeQT doesnt start at all. It gaves an error beforre starting.
Trying to solve the problem, i upgraded my Win XP install from SP1 to SP2. tried RESpeQT again. still doesnt work
Then upgrade from SP2 to SP3. Same thing. RespeQT refuses to start at all.
I then tried all 4 versions of RespeQT on the CF-M34 and then at another Panasonic Toughbook model. the CF-28 (1Ghz Pentium III and 512MB memory)
still no go.
Am I doing something wrong ?
Update: I tried R4 on my old Compaq D230 Desktop with serial port and it works ! Strangly, the Toughbooks run the same Windows XP version as my Compaq desktop.

The max memory of the CF-M34 is 192 MB and the max of the CF-28 is 512MB. So, more memory is not an option. Min specs for using RespeQT is a Pentium 233Mhz MMX, so my CF-M34 and CF-28 are faster.

I tried the old AspeQT 18.104.22.168 preview 7 and it worked good. 38400 High Speed mode works 20% of the time. 19200 works most of the time. 57600 doesnt work good. (i guess I have to fix my 130XE sioport to higherspeed)
Settings are now in AspeqT
Handshake method : RI (non also works)
Writing to a blank ATR spartados floppy of 720K and 360K also worked good.
Boot Atari executable (XEX) file also works good.
So, for now, i will work with the old AspeQT.
