Hi Bernard,

Thanks for answering,  I was being sarcastic and did not expect a fire and
forget to install, but at least one that didn't entail swearing at
inanimate objects,, software and companies big and small. .

 What I actually hoped for was a pointer to the de facto thread that means
I don't have to spend days
looking for problems that others have solved

There are lots of threads but I have yet to find one that is definitive for
the latest version or at least 1 version back.

Like I always say - developers should always eat their own dog food (to
personal friends I don't use the words dog  food - you know what i mean?)

I will look for a thread by you and expect that it should be the latest
unless you say otherwise - you didn't say if it works on the latest yet
though - which version of indy should I use?

Regards Lagi
