Thank you for creating this! I needed IPX to play Starcraft on Windows 7. This is great!

thank you for your answere. Yes i imported it to registry - the 64bit-version, because i am using Win8 64bit. I even started the exe and choosed my network card + apply + o.k.-button. But nothing helped.

Thanks for your work on ipxwrapper!

I'm happily off to kill diablo in an IPX game. Nicely, I just needed to plop the three key dll's into the Diablo folder, and off I went.

Thanks again!

Works fantastic with Descent (d1x patch) in Windows 7 x64.

THANKS FOR THIS! I'm very grateful and will start pointing people your direction.

You have any idea how sick and tired I was of answers in forums pointing to M$'s website stating that IPX is not supported and won't work... very irritating!
