OK Thanks Gary and Per. I've recieved both your binaries and they behave 
the same way as my compiled version :-(

However thanks to a snippet from Gary I've solved my problem. He 
mentioned the Windows event viewer so I checked it and saw some 
relevant error messages :-)

"SSL error during Load certificates: error 02001002 system 
library:fopen: No such file or directory"
followed by three other SSL errors finishing with 
"TLSLoadCertificatesFailed (3/25)"

So I checked the bbackupd.conf file and discovered that the paths for 
the certificates was "/etc/box/bbackupd"

in "/etc/box" and moving them into the bbackupd folder cured the 

It's also appears to be working nicely on my Win98 machine too so that 
solves another issue for me (as the boxwin native binary fails on 

I'd like to thank both Gary and Per for your suggestions and advice and 
am pleased to be able to report success. Much appreciated.
