I have no idea what you are referring to. AGWTracker is one file. You 
need AGWPE as a sound card TNC or to interface to a hardware TNC. If you 
want to be an IGate or Digi, then you download AGWUIDigi.

It is no different than all the modules that I downloaded for UI-View. 
The difference is that someone is actually supporting AGWTracker.

$49 if you want to register. Roger used to charge for his product also. 
The only reason UIV is free is that it is a dead, unsupported, orphaned 

It's nice that AGWTracker has active development. UI-View cannot, it 
will not be enhanced, it may not run on future operating systems....in 
other words, it is stuck in time.

AGWTracker runs on my Windows 7 system all the time. I don't have to 
reboot, it takes very little memory. It runs with AGWUIDigi, DVAP 
Software, Echolink, WinLink, and an assortment of Multimode programs 
without any issues at all. Never a lock-up.

You might want to check your system if you are having all those issues 
and need to do a weekly reboot. Something is not right.
