    http://www.basic4ppc.com/forum/questions-help-needed/3461-sunset-sunrise-time.htmlGreetings to all,
    Newbie to Basic4ppc App.(6.5)

    I downloaded the open source (GPS-Astro).
    In my case GPS-Astro does not work at all on desktop.

    ERROR: An error occurred on sub main.mnuconnect_click.
    Line number:55
    gps.open
    Error description:
    Unable to load Dll gpsapi.dll:The specified module could not be found.
    (Exeption from HRESULT:0x8007007E) Continue?

    The application employs the latest GPSDriver.dll in that it will run on WM5 and WM6.x devices only.

    Here a precise question.
    How can we make this work? I am not sure how to do this, a solution is needed.

    PC: Laptop CoreDUo, Windows XP SP2 E
    PPC:hp5555/WM2003
    Bluetooth Clip on:Fortuna Gps

    Thank you very much for your help.

    Your query is vague and lacking in detail that might let us even start to help :(. A link to whatever this "astro-gps/GPS Tester" thingy is might at least give a clue.

    Nevertheless from the information given it is possible to state that as gpsapi.dll is not available on any desktop anything trying to use it will never work.

    Dir Sir
    Downd a few manuals and made some changes to App.

    Using Tools - Components, I removed GPSDriver and added Serial2.dll and GPS.dll to device and desktop. Still getting negative results.
    I would like to make this work for Destop Xp and PPC WM2003 using Clipon Bluetooth. For Private use with the PPC
    Uploaded origanal File, it would be nice if someone can help me with this.
    Inputs, suggestions for improvements, bug-reports, test/results and small talk are welcomed!
    Thank you

    GetGPSData and the other GPS methods you are using are part of GPSDriver.
    I recommend you to go over the above tutorial and try the attached program. It shows how to work with Serial2 and GPS libraries.
