NPL IS 22!
1984 was an interesting year. People were comparing "modern times" to George Orwell's book "1984". In October of that same year Niakwa burst onto the software scene and rocked the BASIC-2 community with it's introduction of BASIC-2C - now NPL.
Through the years, NPL has grown to fill the needs of our developers and changing computer technology. It's fun to think back on those exciting times. The fun's not over, the best is yet to come!
We send our sincerest thanks to all of our valued customers and friends for their support and dedication to Niakwa and NPL throughout the years.
More and more computers are being supplied these days with 64-bit processors.
64-bit processors from Intel and AMD run 32-bit programs they are not able to run 16-bit programs. Why is this important to know? While NPL Releases 5.00 and 5.01 are 32-bit programs, they depend on 16-bit programs to install, recall, and reset security.
Even if the computer is running the 32-bit version of Windows, 16-bit components will not function. The only supported solution to this problem is to upgrade to the latest version of NPL, Release 5.10.
