Please read messages carefully before responding.   Dave didn't say he 
copied programs from one computer to another.  He moved the entire hard 
drive.  This includes Windows and everything else that went with it, 
unless of course, it was an extra data drive and not the system drive.

If I understand UI-View correctly, if he had just copied it, it wouldn't 
even work.  He states that it appears to be working fine, but is only 
questioning the IGate function.  Can you perchance shed some light on 
how to tell if the IGate function is working in UI-View since looking at 
the APRS-IS is showing a different station doing the gating.
