Are you using the win32 port of Box Backup? Boxi currently isn't 
compatible with it, since Boxi uses a named pipe, and the win32 client 
uses a TCP port for communication. Sorry. I recommend you use the version 
of Box Backup that comes with Boxi, for now.

If you're using the version of Box Backup that comes with Boxi, check your 
Windows event viewer for startup errors from Box Backup. What happens when 
you click the Start button? Is the Box Backup process running? (check for 
bbackupd.exe in Task Manager).

Cheers, Chris.
