Gary & Max, it is really hard to find the most up-to-date version of the NPLB application software.

Also there is the fast version but this is confusing as the version with a higher version number is for Linux and a 0.01 lower version is for Windows 32-bit. More than two dozen of my computers are 64-bit and on first inspection it seems as if there is no NPLB software for Windows 64-bit operating systems. (With insider knowledge we know that the NPLB software is 32-bit and is capable of running under 64-bit Windows, and that there is no speed increase when running 64-bits but to the noobie they wouldn't know all this).

We need a clear link to the software and to instructions for how to run it on multi-core CPUs.
Indeed...I knew the first post of this thread hadn't been updated in a while but looking at it just now I see it was last edited in July 2009(!)--well before the latest LLRnet clients came out, not to mention PRPnet.

I've been meaning to overhaul the "getting started" instructions here for a while...we have pretty decent instructions for PRPnet but not for the newest LLRnet. I wrote some how-to's for the latest clients over in the TPS project subforum when I helped them set up some LLRnet and PRPnet servers a few months back; with slight modifications, those would work quite well for NPLB.

I'm adding that to my to-do list right now. (Thanks for the heads-up!)
