Changed XP box to a WIN7 box a couple years back. Now running MixW 3.2.   Think I tried to get it working on XP box back then , but with zero success.  I should probably never go near a computer....

What version of MixW are you running? What version of Windows?
It's all on your end. It works for me and others too.
If you get the country flag pop-up icons, then it's working properly. You just don't have the correct 070 member info in the "icon.cfg" file or the 070 member icons in the "Icons" folder.

Tried several times to get that feature working unsuccessfully so gave up.

Jerry, not an entirely double edged sword.
When my MixW prints an 070 Club members call sign, I get a small icon that pops up with their 
070 number, 1st name and their state.
If it's a member I've worked, it's of a particular color icon. 
If it's a member I haven't worked, it's of a different color icon.
Really works well for chasing LONP, and just surfing up and down my waterfall.

Gotta love this software !   Copying mail on 20m and see a guy named Jordan; so MixW sticks a little Jordanian flag next to his name , does that mean he's a Arab ?   Hardly.

One of the quirkier quirks of MixW is that when ever you print the name of a country it sticks a flag next to name...   New Mexico gets a Mexican flag...  New England gets a Union Jack... never wish anyone a Happy Turkey Day because you'll get a little Turkish flag in there ....and so on.
