Thanks Brad, I was doing a text comparison. After reading your note I went back to the original folder and deleted the .cfg file and tried again - WAHLA, it now works fine. Obviously there was something screwed up in the .cfg file.
By the way did you receive Altium's End of Year mailing? It offers "Protel 99 'XTRA'" for only $4995. www.protel.com/protel99xtra Thanks again, Steve Smith Product Engineer Staco Energy Products Co.
